The team at Artificial Grass Direct love to get creative in the garden, so are often found diligently scouring the internet for great outdoor ideas or just things that make us laugh.
Etsy – the online crafting marketplace – is a goldmine for all things garden. What’s more, it’s also a goldmine for weird and wonderful creations that will make your garden stand out from the crowd.
Let’s take a look at some great garden creations that we’ve been loving recently.
Pallet Herb Garden

This is a fantastic example of upcycling, and a handy space-saver too. Leaning up against your fence, this herb garden has very little in the way of a footprint and allows you to plant pretty impressive amounts of herbs. A very resourceful idea.
Swings aren’t just for kids you know. A comfortable and classy handmade design is perfect for whiling away a summer’s afternoon, it also protects you from the sun while you relax.
Corner Decking Wooden Planter
Another great use of space for your garden. A decking planter uses the corner spaces of your lawn or flowerbed and its multi-level design is fantastic for mixing up your space’s aesthetics. It can be a durable, useful and well-made item.
Camping Pod / Garden Room
Camping out just got a whole lot more convenient. A garden pods is fully insulated so can be used all year round for that home-from-home comfort. Its sleek, stylish design is unobtrusive, but there’s plenty of space to relax inside too. Use it for everything from kids’ sleepovers to year-round garden shed DIY; its electricity function means that anything’s possible!
Onto the more ‘weird’ end of the weird and wonderful title now, and what a fantastic example it is. These beautifully rendered bronze resin hippos are the perfect addition to any turf and will make for a subtle but surprising complement to a flowerbed. They look part-submerged in water, which adds a great sense of realism to the design.
TableTop Glass Fireplace
These beautiful glass fireplaces can be placed on your garden table to great effect. Using convenient gel fuel and constructed from thick, bevelled glass, these items are great for lighting up any after-dark BBQ or dinner party. It’s safe to say that none of your neighbours will have one of these, so have them around to roast marshmallows!
Looking for a decent, thick hedge without the faff? Look no further; artificial ivy makes for a realistic and environmentally-friendly alternative. Available in a range of styles and sizes, these convenient products are perfect for a range of internal and external settings.
