3 Ways to Save on Spring Gardening
Is your spring garden revamp underway? After a long winter, it’s finally time to get out into the sunshine and start replenishing your garden. However, depending on how much work that needs to be done or the number of garden supplies you need to purchase, it can be time-consuming and costly.
If you’re looking for ways to save money on your garden this spring, we’ve got your back! Here are 3 nifty tips to spend less and enjoy your garden more.
Buy Garden Supplies in Bulk
Many green thumbers like to apply fresh layers of mulch, soil, or landscaping stones in their garden come spring after a wet winter has left things a bit soggy and worn out. However, buying multiple bags of supplies can add up quickly, and be difficult to haul home in a passenger vehicle.
Instead, ask your local garden supplier about buying bulk garden supplies. This tends to be a cheaper option, and many suppliers are even willing to deliver the materials to your home or business.
Save on Soil
Composting is an excellent way to recycle food waste while also saving money on buying soil from the garden center. And, the benefits don’t stop there. Compost is chock-full of nutrients that plants love. It’s organic, chemical-free, and simple to throw together.
Save your vegetable and fruit scraps, eggshells, coffee grounds, and fallen, dead leaves. Together, this becomes a powerful combo that nourishes the soil and feeds plants so they’re in optimal shape come summer.
Buy Used Garden Tools
An excellent way to save on garden tools this spring is by checking out thrift and reStores before buying new. You’ll be surprised at what you’ll find, from shovels to spades and gloves to building materials.
ReStores stocks donated items specifically for home improvement, with proceeds going to Habitat for Humanity. That means you’re not only saving money but also supporting an awesome cause.
