Seeking garden inspiration from Pinterest

Gardening seems to be one of those things that requires a lot of patience - not my strong suit. But this spring is my fourth in our house, which means our plants are finally starting to fill out and even look a little cohesive. The newish white fence helps, too.

I've decided that this means I need to step up my gardening even more, and of course, I'm looking to Pinterest for inspiration. I'd really like to come up with some built-in seating, for reading while the dog romps around the yard. We also need to think about an elevated herb garden strategy, now that we have said dog. Pretty sure we won't be eating anything that's currently ground level. Oh well, I love the look of flowering chives.

Here are some photos I'm hoping will inspire us to make our garden even better. Also, if you have a garden DIY project you'd like to share, I'd love to feature it here. Submit a description of your project (with photos if possible) via email and we'll make it happen.

My grapes died. I want raised beds but my son doesn't want to mow around them. If I could get some big round clay drainage pieces about 8' across we could both be happy. He could just ride in a circle around them.
