Gardening is the ultimate win-win for a stressed homeowner. Puttering in the garden is a relaxing contrast with a busy day at the office. In addition, even the tiniest garden provides enough tomatoes, carrots and cucumbers to make a summer salad.

With careful planning, a trellis also provides much needed shade on the sunny side of the house. This is a one weekend project.Difficulty:Moderately EasyInstructions Things You'll Need
