• How to Create a Budget Garden

    Not everyone can be a landscaping maestro, as not everyone has the right budget for that. Creating a beautiful garden on a budget may seem like an impossible task, but it doesn’t have to be! With the right motivation, budgeting and understanding of your garden, you have a bespoke garden space - at a reasonable budget!

    So, how exactly do you create a wondrous garden space on a limited budget? Here are a few quick tips to do just that:

    Grow Your Own

    Surprisingly, you can save a lot of money in your gardening efforts from simply buying seeds rather than their later-in-life counterparts. Where
    a full-grown plant will cost you anything between $10-$50, the seeds could cost you a fraction of the price between $1-$5.

    Inevitably, you will have to wait longer for fruiting and flowering when taking this path. But, the satisfaction from growing your own plants couldn’t be higher.

    Rock Up

    So, if there is one thing that is absolute abundance in your garden that is rocks. From little to large, you can find an assortment of these sometimes beautiful, sometimes a nuisance, garden accessories. Meaning you can collect enough to build yourself a small border that looks natural and stylish, at almost no cost!

    If your garden is lacking in rocks, then you may have to buy some. Opt for relatively inexpensive options to keep to your budget.

    Fairy Lights

    Sometimes adding a little light to space can make it feel like a whole new garden. The classic fairy lights are budget-friendly
    and better yet, can be found almost anywhere. Get several strips of these, place them around the garden for the best lighting options and enjoy the magical atmosphere you have created instantly!

    Upcycle Furniture

    Rather than buying a host of new garden furniture, why not simply breathe new life into what you already have? For old, rotting, wooden benches you could simply sand down or replace some of the slats. Rusting metal can be removed from outdoor furniture easily, simply use acidic ingredients such as baking soda or coca cola to help remove it with a rag.

    Fill with Pots

    Plant pots can come in inexpensive bundles, perfect for filling with your seedlings and growing your own colorful garden with. You may not want to overwhelm a small space with too many pots, but creating a dedicated area of your garden for them can be the best way to bring a little color to space on a budget.

    Grow Upwards

    A trellis can be one of the easiest ways
    to avoid using up too much room in your garden space, whilst also adding a touch of beauty to your space. From roses to lilac, you can give your garden wall a sense of life with very little effort on your part. Just set up your plant and trellis and watch it climb to new heights!

    Gravel It

    Don’t bother buying expensive paving stones or high-end gravel. You can create a chic garden with the help of a bag of this durable and inexpensive product, which looks modern and minimalistic in all the on-trend ways right now.

    Buy a few slabs of paving, if desired, to create a floating path through the gravel if desired.

    And there you have it! All of the best ways that you can help to create a beautiful garden space, without blowing your budget! It’s all about having the right plan and knowing your limitation before you get started. There’s no reason you shouldn’t be able to have a garden worthy of a queen, even if you don’t have the budget of one.

    How to Measure and Install Storm Windows In cold weather, one-third of the heat lost in your home seeps out through gaps in doors and windows. Storm windows create a tight seal, which blocks heat loss. This lowers your utility bills and helps make you more comfortable in the winter. To ensure a tight fit, you need to measure properly for storm windows and install them correctly. Storm Window Types Storm windows fall into two general types: exterior and interior. Exterior storm windows go over your existing home windows. They can alter your home's curbside appeal, but do not affect your home's interior.
