Home Depot - 01

Summer is here and I am doing everything I can to get my family to spend as much time outdoors as possible. We love to bar-b-que and just sit outside and enjoy the weather. For the most part, everyone loves being outside.

This year I am trying my hand at something new to me: gardening. We don’t have much space outside like I want to plant a big garden, so I am going to try out container gardening. It allows me the freedom to plant some flowers and vegetables in a convienant sized space for me.

Home Depot has just introduced their Garden Club. I have been browsing this site for a few days now and it gives information on Gardening, Lawn Care, Landscaping and Outdoor Living. Not only that, but the website contains a plethora of DIY Guides and a Buying Guide that would have any nature lover looking over the site for hours. It’s just a really great site.

On the Home Depot Garden Club website you can:

  • Get answers to all of your questions within 24 hours.
  • Really important information about your region, advice on gardening, tips and advice from pros and updates on gardening events in your area.

I would love nothing more then to have an entire outside oasis where my fiance could bar-b-que, I could sit in a comfortable patio chair and look over my garden and watch my sons run around outside. That would be my ultimate goal. That could be your ultimate goal as well.

Home Depot Gift CardI have teamed up with Home Depot’s Garden Club to bring to you a wonderful giveaway!

You can win a $100 gift card to Home Depot!

With this money you could begin, or finish, and outside project at your home.

Go to the Home Depot Garden Club website and find a DIY gardening project you would like to do. Come back here and leave your name, email address and the project you would like to complete at your house.

  96. So this project it a bit less outdoorsy, but when we moved into the house we are currently living in, the entryway, stairwell and the upstairs hallway were covered in the most blinding and hideous burgundy flowerish patterned wallpaper. Unfortunately, getting rid of this wallpaper always gets put on the back burner whenever it comes to fixing something in the house. Anyway, that would be my DIY project…stripping the wallpaper and replacing it with either a nicer wallpaper or a nice coat of paint.

  97. i need a gazabo, a small one. My back yard will be perfect! thank you for considering me

  191. First I have to tell you I was shocked at all the DIY projects. I really liked this site and found it so easy to understand and navigate. I have always wanted an arbor at the entrance of my garden and I found a DIY project “Training a Vine Over an Arbor”. I think the perennial Clematis would be perfect to train to go over the Arbor. I also found another DIY project that I would like to do for the children so that was also a plus.Thanks for Sharing this fantastic review and giveaway~! :)
