Green Ideas for the Yard from Instructables

We all know Instructables is great for all sorts of great DIY ideas. Since Spring is upon us (hopefully!), here are a few Instructables for your garden including a DIY garden shovel, a couple of cheap greenhouses, an easy garden hose fix and a more efficient way to water your garden.

This DIY Garden Shovel requires little more than a small length of galvanized pipe cut with a hack saw and tin snips, pounded with a hammer and sharpened with a file.

This slow-watering mechanism is made from a recycled coke bottle and scrap fabric, will help save water from evaporation and decreases the frequency for which you need to water.

Here are two greenhouses, a Easy Greenhouse for under $25 and a Moveable Seed Starting Greenhouse, both of which would be great for starting seeds until the plants are strong enough to survive weather and animals.

And finally, here's an easy Garden Hose Repair Instructable for patching that leaky hose.
