A good solid concrete bird bath lasts almost forever and really costs little to build if you are willing to do a little easy work.
Flagstones of different sizes are really simple to maker in a partitioned box mold and make a wonderful garden path or driveway.
Concrete plant pots look great, are solid and long lasting and are easy to make with a simple wooden mold.
A Roman style garden bench seat is very easy to make with wooden molds which you can vary to any size you want. Concrete fence posts are great looking and can cost less than heavy wooden posts--again just a simple wooden mold does the job.
