DIY - Homemade Gabion wall ie rocks encased in wire baskets and used as a retaining wall - creates a dramatic feature in a garden. No directions on link. Nice someone figured out how to landscape with river rock. I swear they grow!
This DIY built-in patio bench has storage space for pillows, propane tanks and other outdoor items. It even includes flower planters at both ends. Add an awning over it and it is a perfect outdoor social area.
