This book is so creative. I had several ideas for my garden, but could not quite figure out how to make them work. Well, this book does it all. It has lots of clever but simple and inexpensive ways to make your garden work better for you using materials at hand. I am on a tight budget and this book helps me have a very functional garden without spending a fortune. How to make an inexpensive cold frame, how to water more efficiently, and lots of other great ideas. There was a time in America, when people did not sit around and wait for the government to take care of their needs. They used their own ingenuity and made do. This book was written by people with that kind of mentality. Some of the best spent money on a book ever! Thank you to all the people who contributed these wonderful ideas!

I've had this book for a few years and I get it out every single year for inspiration. We've done quite a few projects out of the book...besides the good ideas, I love the illustrations in the book. Instead of photos, there are line drawings to go along with the projects, giving it a vintage feel. There are lots of trellis ideas, fences, squirrel feeders, just too many to list. We originally saw this book at Cracker Barrel and regretted not buying it, so found it at a bargain on Amazon. So glad we bought it!

This is a great book with so many good ideas. My boyfriend is going to make things for me from this book, like the wooden planter boxes. Barbara Pleasant is a wonderful author and I really enjoyed this Easy Garden Projects book.

I love DIY projects, at least those that don't require great carpentry skills. Barbara Pleasant offers a wide variety of ideas to make a gardener's life easier and even more fun. Well-illustrated with black and white drawings and clear instructions. I enjoy a good index and found this one helpful. Like birds? There's ideas to please them, too. Cute bunnies in the garden not your thing? She has suggestions about that. Make your own plant supports and trellises. When the vegetable patch and pretty flowers are happy, so is the gardener. You can be a happy gardener, too.

Originally purchased this book with the hopes of detailed garden structure plans contained inside. That's not really the case with this book, but soon found a ton of practical ideas and projects that have wonderful, easy application in the garden.
