Garden Inspirations

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Miracle-Gro for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

     When you look around while walking through a neighborhood or driving down the road, do you ever notice the landscape and garden layouts of the other peoples yard?  I do, and find so many things I would love to do in my yard.  I also find lots of inspiration from magazines and photos.  With the resources we have to day, you can find all kinds of inspirations from silly, to celebrity styles.  I must say that I enjoy the country homey look much more than I do a complete clean look.  Don't get me wrong, I like for it to be clean but I also enjoy the look of not being afraid I am going to mess something up and I like for it to be fun to look at.  If I had the garden of my dreams I would have an interactive garden, with walk ways, benches, and fun things to look at.  When I think of a perfect garden I am reminded of the Secret Garden, and think how awesome would that be.  A place to go and get away from everything, to read a book, or just relax.

     To get started with your great fun garden projects you first need the right materials to get started.  I am a huge Hen and Bitty plant fan so that is the first step for m is to decide what flower or plant I want to use.  Once you decide what plant you want to use then you can visit the Miracle-Gro Facebook  page or Pinterest page and get some really great ideas on different projects that you and your family will enjoy doing together.  The Gro Project offers many but my favorite for the hen and bittys is the toyrarium.  For this project you will need to gather up your plants (cactus), Miracle-Gro Moisture Control Potting Mix, small figurines, rocks (color or white) spoon, and a fish bowl or another glass bowl.

     Once you have your material together you need to wash your container and allow it to dry, place your rocks and potting soil in the bottom, only fill about half way up, then mix your soil and rocks together.  This will allow the water to drain and keep your cacti happy and healthy.  Then you will arrange your plants and place your toys around the plants, And now you have a toyrarium that looks great in any room, especially in a child's room!

     Check out this video and see what you come up with.  It is the perfect time to get your hands dirty with Miracle-Gro and make not only your home but your yard beautiful!
