I took a landscape design class several years ago for fun, and one thing that they emphasized was that the outdoor space of your home is just as important as the indoor. Especially if you like to spend time outside or host any garden parties. I don’t do that, but I might if I had a nice place to entertain! I put together a collection of 12 inspirational projects that can make a huge difference in your garden or outdoor area. A lot of these are great budget options – like this recycled barrel planter spotted on Design Sponge. Are you interested in learning more? Click through the jump for some amazing inspiration!
