Simply make garden plugs yourself from branches
It’s garden time again. I love to watch my garden as it develop in the course of spring and I look forward to every new plant that blooms. I could let my gaze wander over the beds for hours. I also try to make individual decorations for the garden at a low price.
Nice garden decoration at a low cost
My tip for your flower beds: Just make your own garden plugs with a natural touch. All you need is thick branches and a topping that you like. In this post, I’ll show you three examples of DIY garden plugs from my garden. Basically, it is very easy to make such a garden plug. You look for a thick branch that has grown fairly straight and shorten it to the desired length. You can knock the branch into the ground with a larger hammer (best in wet, soft soil). To make it even easier, you can “sharpen” the ends. I use a small ax for this. But you can also dig a small hole in advance so that you can insert the garden plug a little deeper before you hammer it further into the ground. Just give it a try. I “fuckele” (do you know this word?) So often when decorating and in the end I always get my desired result.
DIY garden plug with terracotta balls
Balls made of different materials are basically a great decoration idea to spruce up a flower bed. The balls don’t just have to be arranged on the ground. They also loosen up the view through the flowerbed at heights. In the course of time, numerous terracotta balls in various sizes have accumulated in my decorative fund, which I had placed in all possible places. Over time, some of them have already developed a little patina, but that’s exactly what I particularly like. I put two of the balls on two thicker branches, which are now used as garden plugs. I draped the remaining balls around the two DIY garden plugs.
DIY garden plug with willow balls
Another great idea for DIY garden plugs are willow balls as a topping. The decorative balls are attached to the branches after they have been hammered into the earth. I used cable ties to secure the balls (yes, I love to fuck).
Figures on the garden plug
The previous owner of our house was a hobby blacksmith. Some parts in our house come from his hand such as B. our banister or the garden gate with the two taps. As we mucked out our garage a bit, I came across the template for the tap. I thought the metal part was too good to land on the trash. So I gave him a place in the flower bed. I simply nailed the rooster to the top of a long branch with nails. I then hammered the finished DIY garden plug into the ground.
Could I give you a few suggestions for homemade garden plugs? Have you ever made such garden decorations yourself? I am also looking forward to your suggestions. Just write me a comment.
