Get Creative With Garden Markers

March 24, 2015 by  

Garden MarkersSpring is officially here and now is the perfect time to decide what you plan on growing this year in your home garden. Many of us already know what green peppers and tomatoes look like, but can you always tell the difference between parsley and cilantro?

Home gardening is essential if you hate pesticides or just want to save money on your groceries. It’s also a great stress reliever, and depending on what herbs you plan on growing, it can make your home and garden smell just divine. But of course, it also has to be visually appealing and that’s where your style and creativity come into play.

Rustic and repurposed is huge right now and why not jump on the bandwagon and give your garden a touch of just that. The charm you get from using repurposed items gives your garden a bit of Americana and vintage style – perfect for any setting.

Having fun is essential in creating your very own garden markers, which is why chalk paint, branches, paint stirrers, even old soda tin cans can be used – and with style.

Here are five creative DIY projects to help mark specific herbs and vegetables in your garden this year.
