Giving has always been a field for experiments. Few of us buy new decorative elements for the dacha – why, if almost everything can be made with our own hands from the currently unused things left in the dacha? We have collected 5 original life hacks for cottages, so that you can create a great place for developing creativity, and for a relaxing holiday.
From old furniture, you can create whatever your heart desires: you can take an old chest of drawers and grow strawberries in it. Pulling out a little of each box, cover it with earth and plant berries. Or, for example, give an old rake a new life: from a broken rake, you can make a rack for storing garden tools, glasses or any suitable utensils.
Washing of the feet
Many of us like to walk barefoot in our suburban area, but this often becomes a problem, because after such a walk you need to take shoes, walk to the hose, wash your feet clean, put on shoes and only then walk home and take off your shoes again. It is easier to do otherwise, putting a lot of stones next to the entrance, fixing them with a frame, putting a hose next to them, and standing on the stones, wash your feet from dirt.
Crafts made from plastic bottles
Plastic bottles accumulate a huge amount, and there is often nowhere to put them. Why take them to the trash when you can create many different convenient devices or crafts for the dacha?
For example: flowerbeds, self-watering, watering cans, or beautiful statuette-like decorative elements.
The most convenient option is to create an irrigation system: stick the hose through the neck, firmly attaching it, and make small holes at the bottom of the bottle, through which water will be sprayed. So, no extra expenses will be necessary.
Holes for sowing seeds
Very convenient option for gardeners. Small holes can be made using a regular egg tray. By the way, small seedlings can be planted initially in such trays, pouring soil into each compartment and placing a seedling there. As for egg trays, you can take a look at our other article. /link to the article/
Growing onions on a feather in a bottle
You need to take a five-liter bottle, making holes around its perimeter, fill it with garden soil and spread the onion so that the top goes out into the hole. A very convenient and space-saving system that gives the onion a special taste and aroma.
These 5 life hacks will give you an idea of what to do on a normal and boring day, improving your country life.
