Salvaged! The 32 Shutter Challenge-Repurposing Shutters in the Garden
Then, last year a neighbor gave me ten shutters and I made two raised garden beds from them. It really worked, a way to garden even in a fifty-year-old ivy bed! I was hooked!
So, last fall the whole area was weed whacked and smothered in mulched fall leaves from the mower. This spring, the ivy was mostly at bay and I started to dream of another garden. Serendipity! Another neighbor offered me their thirty-two old wooden shutters and The 32 Shutter Challenge began.
You won't believe how I used them all up! Come see ...

Oh wow. I love, love, love your yard. I see all these wonderful ideas on this site & get so inspired. But then reality sets in. I live in a senior's only mobile home park w/a hated HOA that squashes any/all creativity. It's a Stepford Wive's community. I gotta get outta this place. I had a sign up in my front yard...Gardener wanted. Must look good bending over. I was told to take the offensive sign down. I told them that as I drive thru my community I see MANY of my nabors doing their gardening bending over & I'm not offended.
However, I continue to pin all these great ideas to use when I get to a better place.
