5 Backyard DIY Projects to Try This Weekend

We love Sunset magazine, not just because it is focused on the West, but because it has such great ideas. Here are 5 backyard do-it-yourself projects (from Sunset’s list of 53!) that you can try this weekend:

  1. Get organized. Build a home recycling center to hide those trash cans and recycling bins.
  1. Feeling crafty? Make this cute outdoor chandelier with a wire basket and mason jars.
  1. If you enjoy entertaining, make this simple, portable dining retreat with potted plants, PVC pipe, mosquito netting and lights.
  1. No space is too small to build this raised planter salad box to grow greens year-round.
  1. Creating this five-section, stackable compost bin is easy-peasy and good for the environment!
