Basil in the Garden
You can grow your own basil, eliminating the need to buy herbs at the store. Some herbs are hardy to grow outdoors all year long, while others you may want to grow outdoors during the summer and take indoors when the weather turns cold.

Instead of buying new bricks, you can reuse old bricks. For some projects, it doesn't make a difference whether you remove the mortar from the old bricks or leave it on. Bricks are functional, especially when they are used around the garden area.
Recycled Planter Ideas
You can grow flowers and vegetables in the ground or, if you have a limited amount of space, you can grow them in containers. Almost any kind of container you can find around your yard will work.
