10 DIY Outdoor Bars! ~ With outdoor spaces being extensions of the indoors in today's homes, making a DIY bar just seems like a dang good idea. And if you don’t prefer to serve alcohol, use your DIY bar to serve the best iced tea around! ~ #1. Our featured photo, is a tiled outdoor bar. It has a full tutorial, with step by step drawings. What a great style for a mediterranean or exotic feel to your garden! I love the corrugated metal, it keeps this project looking updated.
Low water perennials-Ornamental Grass Ornamental grasses vary a lot, from thirsty sedges to drought tolerant fountain grass. Our pick for today is a fountain grass (Pennisetum) “Hameln”. Well behaved and neatly mounded with fine strappy foliage, this grass grows to 2 feet and sends up stalks of white plumes in early-mid summer. This grass is an easy grower in full sun, and loves a hot, dry spot. This variety does not reseed. Zones 5-9. What’s not to love!
