If you’re thinking about something to spruce up your yard, or maybe you’re just looking for a fun project to do, then free yard wood projects can be a fun and simple solution. Perhaps you’re just looking for a way to use that left over wood you have stored in the garage, taking up space.

There are a vast amount of ideas for free yard wood projects available on a number of sites, but let’s cover some of the basic information you will need. From birdhouses to planters, windmills and mock wishing wells, your possibilities are almost endless. If you don’t have the project wood, there might be a way to solve that problem for free as well.

Before you start your project it's important to take a look at what resources you'll need by analysing the plans. This way you can make sure you have all your supplies and tools available, or plan to acquire what you may be missing.

For an example let’s talk about how easy it would be to build a free yard wood project like a raised flower bed. The first thing you will want to do is mark off the space you plan to use. You can do this a variety of ways, but one very easy solution is to use stakes and rope. This way you can outline the shape you want. Then you will want to measure the area so you know what size to cut your boards. If you put boards at the corners you’ll have an easy way to attach the side boards. Use nails or screws and put your boards together and you’re ready to go, you’ve got the space for a raised flower bed, or maybe your own vegetable garden.

If you have some wood left over from a previous project but you aren’t sure what to do with it you’ve got more options than you think. Or maybe, you saw the neighbors set out their old desk for the trash and you wanted to come up with a way to recycle the wood. There are other ways you can get wood to do your weekend free wood project as well. Craigslist will often have listings for wood that you can get, and a lot of the time it is people willing to forgo the value of the wood, simply to have someone haul it away. Pallets are another option when you’re looking for free wood to make weekend projects with.

Another recourse that may surprise you is old furniture. Old couches might have just the type of wood you need underneath them to create your free yard wood projects. So, now that you have scavenged the neighborhood and done your homework for online recourses you’ll be ready to start your free yard wood projects. You’ll want to spend some time looking at your yard to see where you might be lacking needed decoration, or maybe you already have your space in mind. These free yard wood projects will help enhance the aesthetics of your yard, as well as giving you an interesting and yet easy project to complete.
