Happy National Lawn Care Month, dear readers. Sure, it’s not the sexiest-sounding month ever, but lawn care and landscaping can be fun, too! Just taking a look at Pinterest, I loved this idea for a low-cost sprinkler, and hey, a bike that’s also a riding lawn mower? That is genius multitasking. But I think my favorite lawn-related find was this DIY sod sofa.

It looks a bit like a wacky Edward Scissorhands-style topiary, but it’s actually solid enough to sit on, as the picture demonstrates. Heck, I think you could even go further and make a sod coffee table and sod ottoman, too! Interested in making your own literal lawn furniture? Check out the DIY instructions here.

    The reason the link to the instructions doesn't 'work' is because the magazine it was published in no longer exists. They were bought/taken over by BHG, then discontinued when non of the staff wanted to move to a different state. At any rate, here is another article I found where the original creator describes how to make the sod sofa: http://www.farmshow.com/view_articles.php?a_id=32
