And one place that has become a major source of inspiration is TikTok.

Many homeowners and DIY aficionados are using the social media platform to share their inexpensive tips and tricks to add a little life to their garden.

One in particular is Jon, whose name is do by hand on TikTok and has over 308k followers.

He uploaded a video of him adding a simple edit to the garden patio and it made all the difference.

To do the trick, he needs some glue and fake grass.

The video has garnered more than 12.9k likes, with hundreds of people flocking to the comments section to share their thoughts.

One person wrote: “Save water – save money on mowing – love it.”

Another added: “I personally love it, it’s great for kids and you can always add wildflowers to pots or raised beds!”

The third said, “God, come and make my garden.”
