If you're an aspiring horticulturist stuck in an urban or slightly suburban area, you might feel a little discouraged after scrolling through tons of Pinterest boards filled with acres of scenic landscapes. However, gardens don't have to be large, rambling estates full of blooms to be lovely additions to your space. By creating your own flower bed, you can fill your outdoor space with fantastic blooms without sacrificing space.


1. Use cinder blocks to create DIY planters

Whether you're not handy with tools or you need a quick flower box later in the growing season, cinder blocks can provide the perfect solution to your short-term gardening problems. Stack cinder blocks in the shape you want your flower bed to be or create a wall with cinder blocks at perpendicular angles for individual flower pots.
