DIY Mailbox Garden for Storing Garden Tools
*this post contains affiliate links for more information check out our disclosure page here*
I have had a thing for cooper mailboxes for years now.
We bought this one for our last house back when Smith & Hawkin was still a store (sold just a Target now) & copper was not nearly as expensive as it is now.
When we knew we would be selling the Suburban Split we switched out the mailboxes so we could bring this one with us & I decided to make a mailbox garden with it in the middle of my gardens.
As I have shared before our old farmhouse is located on a REALLY busy street & at night our driveway at night is hard to find so we need to keep the one that came with the house with the oh so pretty reflective stick on numbers.
So my copper one has been in the garage for almost 2 years & I decided it was time to bring it back out!
Moose loves to steal & chew on our garden gloves (we are happy that for now anyway… our shoes are left alone.
He steals them chews off the fingers & hides them all over the yard.
He threw up the fingers on our morning walk…LOVELY!!!
I wanted a safe place to keep our garden gloves & small gardening tools and my copper mailbox garden is the best place to store them!
They are easy to find, conveniently in the middle of the yard, they are protected from the weather & the best part is that Moose can’t get them out.
My Mailbox garden is located under our beautiful oak tree in a shady spot where I planted a few hostas & daffodils & near a beautiful pink rhododendron.
Tucker helped me dig the hole & we used an old mailbox post the was damaged by the snowplow in a winter storm here last year.
We did it right after the older three got picked up on the school bus.
I was so determined to get our mailbox garden in I didn’t even have my contacts on & was still in my PJ’s!
I love it!
What do you guys think?
Am I crazy putting a mailbox out in the middle of our yard?
I don’t think Moose is too happy about it, ha!
Hope you are enjoying a beautiful spring day! I hope this inspires you to create a DIY mailbox garden of your own!
