Win a $100 gift card from Home Depot!

Two things I've always wanted: a cute goat and a classic wooden picnic table.

The Home Depot Garden Club has directions on how to make the picnic table. I think I'm on my own for the goat acquisition.

Would you like that table for your own garden lunches and dinners? Or as a play structure for your goat? 

Head over to Home Depot's Garden Club site and look through the popular gardening and outdoor living DIY projects. 

If you're not into DIY, you'll find information on landscaping that works in your region, and an extensive plant directory that you can search six ways from Sunday. 

Come back here and leave a comment naming a feature you like about the Garden Club. On Friday evening I'll have a random drawing from all the comments and one of you will win a $100 Home Depot gift card. Check in on Friday evening to see who won! 

Home Depot will Fed Ex the gift card to the lucky winner, so I'll need your email if you win, in order to get your street address and phone number. Don't put that info in your comment. The winner must be a U.S. resident. 

Bonus: If you register with the Garden Club you'll get coupons and more garden information.

To leave a comment, click on the word COMMENTS below. 

Please use a name of some kind to identify yourself. One easy way to get a name is to sign up for a free Gmail account; the name you use as part of that address will be your Google name. A Google name is one of the choices that can be selected in the Comments box.

I like the DIY projects. Some day...

This is a well-designed site with an equally user-friendly search engine. I like it because it's very comprehensive.

I like the DIY projects section as well. I'll have to pore through it and see if there's anything I can recommend to garden coaching clients who like to DIThemselves.

I sure hope I win!

I have a friend in New Jersey who has pygmy goats to give away. She just wants them to go to a good home. Stout fences and pickup from her farm in NJ are a must!

I really like the DIY section! I want to plant a garden - tomatoes - anything and I really like the directions showing me how!

Might I instead list all the things I dislike about Home Depot? Their plants are cheap, boring, and die quickly. They have more pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers than plants in stock. When I call to find out whether something is in stock, they always say yes and it rarely is. La gente que trabajan alla usualmente hablan Espanol, que es dificil para me.

'nough said. Fortunately, we have Orchard Supply, where they can answer my questions.

I'm on a first name basis with everyone at my local Home Depot, aka, my second home, aka, the man's toy store. If I were to drop "just $100 clams," they'd probably ask "slow week eh?"

we could really use it for our new yard

How fun, a gift card for diy projects! I love the "ask the expert" segment of the website. Great that they will get back to you in a timely manner. I am off now to ask what on earth is eating my beans. Thanks for the chance to win!

This is fun. I liked that they wanted to know how we use our garden. I'll have to go visit the plant library again. If I win I'll stuff a pot just for you! Cyd

I'm Jane and I liked the Rosedale Arbor. I'm developing a secret garden next to my entry and am thinking about using the arbor in conjunction with a deer fence.

I'm a little worried about the table, though probably I should be more worried about the goat. It looks like his or her left hind foot has somehow inserted itself through the table's slats. I wonder how long the goat has been standing there—the grass is so long and the goat looks so stiff. Do you think it's stuck? Do you think it's real?

Oh Anonymous goat-lover, please leave your name so that I can enter you in the drawing tonight!

P.S. I think the goat is hale and hearty. That's a support under the table, not a hoof (but you made me look!)

Unlike many gardening publications or websites, this one recognizes that a garden is defined by the gardener. It can be a potted fern on a shady balcony or a many- roomed maze of gravel paths and weeping trees. A most democratic space.

EB said...

Mm. I'd much prefer to have the goat. I don't think the home depot token would have been much use here, so good luck to Bill in spending it!

As a "newbie" in the gardening area., the advice was helpful.
