Prayer Garden – Page 3 – Life Hacks Tips

Prayer Garden


We then turned a lot of the scrap wood (tops from posts, etc) into art creations! We also made sure to include electric running out here for lights, the fountain and electrical outlets. I plan to spend lots of time here and it will be great to sit and be able to use my computer!

We finished with the garden for the winter and had to wrap up the fountain and other more delicate items last fall. I’m writing this post because I hope to reveal how things are now looking in the new spring.
