There are so many ways you can do to keep your garden green and lush without spending much on plants and labour. Just be resourceful and patient in handling your gardening needs and for sure you’ll have the perfect yard sooner than you expected. Here a few ways in keeping your garden beautiful and frugal.
Make a Compost Pit
Composting is an effective solution for turning wastes and kitchen garbage into healthy soil. Compost pits help improve the quality of the soil without investing on expensive fertilizers. Pile all your yard wastes and kitchen scraps into the hole and mix them evenly. Cover with soil afterwards.
Start Planting Seeds
Many people would like to plant semi-established shrubberies, which could be a bit costly. If you want to go cheap and wise, planting a seed could be your best choice. Spare some time and let it grow in your garden on its natural way. If waiting for years to see a sprout is not a good idea for you, there are so many choices of annual plants you can always opt to.
Never Pay for Planting Services
When buying trees, some nurseries will offer planting services for an extra fee. Yes, this could be convenient for you, but not necessary. Spare a little of your time in researching the best way to plant your new specimen. And don’t forget the root span measurement of the plant. You should be able to anticipate it before burying it to the ground.
Swap Seeds and Plants
Most probably, your plants will create more seeds than you need, or maybe you just bought more than enough. Why not swap the excess to your friends who have the same gardening interest? It’s a great way of expanding your garden without spending much.
