6 Fun Projects for the Spring Garden

The first day of spring is just a couple of weeks away, can you believe it? The temperatures here in Atlanta are already above freezing, and it’s starting to feel like time to do some planting! Not only is gardening a fun way to play outdoors and get a little bit of exercise, by growing some of your own fruits and veggies, you can stretch your food budget! Spring is a great time to plant lettuces, tomatoes, beets, leafy greens, garlic, onions, herbs, and beans.

Whether you’re working with a whole back yard or a smaller space, we’ve got some DIY garden ideas for you.
