Many times, there are a ton of DIY things you can do around the house to keep pests and wildlife away from your home and garden.

Thankfully, many of these “projects” are actually pretty simple if you grab the right supplies and tools for the job.

If you’re looking for tools to go along with these projects, I review a few quality power drills that are great for DIY projects on this page here.

If you have any interest in keeping animals off your property, saving time on your project, and saving money by not calling a contractor, then you’re in a good place.

1. Cedar Raised Garden Bed (To Protect Your Garden)

This is one of my favorite products that can truly cut down the time required for a project.

If you’re unfamiliar with them, a raised garden bed is essentially a garden that is built above the soil instead of on top of it. They’re especially useful for repelling animals like moles, voles, and gophers. Additionally, they make it harder for grubs and insects to get to your plants since they’re being built above the soil.

If you’re going to go and invest in a raised garden bed, I recommend looking into the Greenes 4 Ft. X 8 Ft. X 10.5 In. Cedar Raised Garden Bed.

The Greenes garden bed is extremely simple to set up, as you only need screws to put the end caps on after all of the boards are in place.

You don’t need any tools to put the boards together.

If you want to grow your garden in the future, then you can simply add on extra boards into the premade slots that are included in the set. It’s very simple to use.
