MY Advise is to stay off of pinterest LOL, the stuff on there is amazing but can get expensive and sometimes they don't always know the risk of using certain items. For instance, people were on the use a wooden pallet craze. First off you DON'T know what was on those pallets. I work in a food manufacturing plant and we get chemcials on the wooden pallets PLUS OTHER items on them. They get shipped in from a warehouse and sometimes there are some awful things still on them (We once found a rottten salmon on one...and by FOUND I mean we smelled it....we get a SEMI LOAD of pallets sky hi so it was hidden from view)

anyways I have a GAZILLION pins of what I want to do to the yard but realistically I only have so much money, and only so much time in the day (I work outside of the home and my shift ends at 9pm whereas my hubbys ends at 6pm, so we don't get together to do outdoorsy things til the weekends)
