Are you looking for ways to spruce up your home’s sparse green space or even that sad concrete roof top? Well, look no further because landscape gardener guru, Jason Hodges from the Australian TV show Better Homes & Gardens shows us how to build an amazing outdoor grass daybed.

The DIY garden guru starts by building out the frame using wood pallets and a slatted headboard. He then covers the base with geofabric before filling it with dirt and fertilizer. He presses down on the soil before rolling out a layer of soft green sod on top, creating the bed’s ultra-comfy “mattress”.

Once construction is complete, adding colorful accessories such as comfy pillows and a light blanket make this bed the perfect spring or summer spot for relaxing with a good book. In Hodges daybed version, the headboard doubles as a planter, which adds even more greenery to the daybed. Those looking to get even more creative could add bookshelves, storage space, or even a wet bar – perfect for those hot summer nights.
