It’s simple to spend a fortune yearly on a lovely yard. These five suggestions will help you save money on gardening both now and in the future.
- Consider what your neighbors are planting when planning your vegetable garden so you can share your harvest when it’s time to eat. I frequently had too much of a particular food that I was unable to share because my friends’ vegetables were ripe at the same time.
- For your flowerbeds, choose perennials rather than annuals. Cut them back as they grow each year and trade with your pals so you both have wonderful gardens and can save money.
- Dispose of your coffee grinds and kitchen scraps in the compost. The finished product is far superior than any potting soil you could ever purchase from a nursery or hardware store. This is absolutely recycling, and the price is reasonable.
- Try using pebbles or small rocks in your garden as ground cover in place of mulch. You won’t have to buy mulch every spring and autumn, which will save you a ton of money.
- By investing more money today in higher-quality gardening tools, you will ultimately save money. You won’t need to replace them after each planting season because they will last for years. In the same way, invest in the best gardening gloves you can afford to ensure that they last the entire season.
