  • Our garden experts have put together a list of budget-friendly hacks for gardeners to save money and get their outdoor space functional. Start cultivating your space more without breaking the bank!

    1. Paint Old Plant Pots


    Are you looking for an easy way to provide your garden with a new surge of life? Fertilising your lawn can be your best bet!

    Buying fertiliser from a store will cost you more,  so we suggest making your own by using wood ash from the fireplace.

    If you’re willing to go the extra mile, you can even start your own compost. Doing so will not only save you trips to the store but also reduce the waste your household produces!

    3. Clean Your Patio


    Having solar-powered lights in your outdoor space will eventually help you save money as they spend the entire day storing up energy from the sun. So when you use them at night, no need for electricity and such.

    5. Eliminate Weeds


    Painting your fences is a great way to give your garden a total makeover. By doing this, spruce them up by sanding them down then provide them with a lick of paint.

    You can choose whatever colour you want, but we suggest to choose colours that will complement the look of your yard.

    7. Spruce up Garden Furniture with Cushions


    If you wish to invest a plant that will last for longer, our garden experts recommend buying perennials.

    There are many kinds of perennials, and no matter what your garden space looks like, you can be sure to find a breed of perennial that is right for you.

    9. Create Own Allotment Plot


    Lawnmowers can sometimes miss the very edges of the lawn. So it’s better to spend more time focusing and checking the edges of your lawn for any untrimmed grass. Usually, you’ll find untrimmed grass near fences, shrubs, or sectioned off sections of your garden. For these, you really need to manually trim it with some sheers or your hands. No two ways about it.

    11. Shrub


    If you’re looking for ways on how to make your garden space look bigger, you can hang some mirrors in your yard as it will make space feel more extensive than ever.

    You can find cheap ones in charity shops or at car boot sales.

    13. DIY Water Feature


    Instead of throwing away tin cans from baked beans and soup or old clay pots, why not use as it as bird feeder? All you have to do is to wash them out, paint them, then fill with bird seeds.

    You can hang it in your garden, making it your own homemade bird feeder.
