Feature your Great Outdoors on Renest

I wanted to break away from usual and mention an announcement inviting refreshing, earth/life-friendly ideas to do up your outdoor space. You must have designed or planned a perfect outdoor space to enjoy your summer evenings, right. And if you are proud of your space why not share it with the world. Sounds interesting?…Then read on….Apartment Therapy has invited hobby gardeners, landscape designers, and backyard farmers, irrespective of the size of their “canvas”, to show off their outdoor space. The projects could include building a tool shed, planting, setting up an entertaining area, and the activities you would plan in your outdoor space.  

What would be featured –
  • An outdoor How-To or DIY project 
  • Cozy and welcoming outdoor space you’ve created
  • Vegetable garden 
  • Balcony /terrace/ roof garden
  • Your tips and tricks for eco-friendly outdoor decorating, or gardening

Interested?…here is how you can do it. Send the Renest Division (Green segment of Apartment Therapy) an email at and share your project, space, or tip, include a few pictures. If selected, your outdoor space will find its way among other really wonderful spaces featured on this platform. 

I am sure they do a great job assessing the entries. How am I so sure?… My tiny balcony garden was featured last June (09) (uff I am such a show off!!) 

And this year, they have featured my last year’s submission in this announcement.

 So Good luck with your outdoor space and your entry.
