Gardening is a great hobby and a great way to save money but it can become very expensive very quickly.
A lot of the things we do in our gardens can be done for less with a little creativity or a bit of extra work.
IN-GROUND GARDEN BEDS
A lot of gardeners chose to use above-ground or raised garden beds to make it easier to control the soil conditions and quality.
FIND FREE PLANTS
Many people give away free plants when they are clearing out old garden beds. This is a great way to save money on ornamental plants for your landscaping.
BORROW GARDEN TOOLS
For gardening tools beyond the basics, always check to see if you can borrow from someone else you know, before spending the money to buy your own.
USE RAINWATER OR GREYWATER
Collecting rainwater in a rain barrel or using greywater from your home is a great way to conserve water.
