Start gardening with a few of my favorite budget gardening ideas! I love to garden, and these budget gardening ideas are some of my very favorites!
Create labels in your garden without having to spend a penny by taking rocks, painting them, and writing the fruit and vegetable names on them! It’s such a great idea!
If you want to have a new and expansive garden this year but don’t have the money, then switch seeds, starters, and plants with your neighbors. You know the plant grows well in your zone, plus you get new things to grow!
Use wooden crates as a makeshift garden if you don’t have the space or want a more isolated and secluded garden! This will also help you keep track of what’s growing where.
Make your own rain barrel out of a garbage can. You can now use the water you collect to water your plants instead of spending money from the hose!
Make your own homemade planters from items you have around the house! You can take old rain boots, for example, and make some awesome looking planters for your yard and garden.
Make a DIY birdfeeder out of cans and some ribbons and string. You can even paint the feeders if you want to add a pop of color to your yard.
If you want a garden but don’t have the space, then vertical gardening is probably for you. A cheap and easy way to vertical garden is by using an over-the-door hanger!
Make mini greenhouse for free by using your empty water bottles. Simply stick them over the plants you want to take care of and you’re good!
Turn your other empty bottles into a makeshift sprinkler that will spray water wherever you need it! Simply insert the hose, attach it securely, and put it in the garden.
Make your own compost pile that will help you take better care of your garden and give it the nutrients it needs. Plus, you will be putting all your food scraps to good use!
Make a raised garden out of cinderblocks. It’s pretty easy and quick to put together and can help with pest problems and water pooling up in one spot! Plus, you don’t have to bend over as much, which can help your back.
Take an old chandelier and turn it into a fantastic hanging planter that grows things as well as acts as some awesome decoration! It’s a win-win for you!
To help your plants in your pots and planters absorb water better, put a diaper at the bottom of it. The diaper absorbs the water instead of letting it all drain out, which takes better care of the plants!
To make your big planters lighter, fill them first with foam peanuts. This weighs less than soil and lets you save on soil!
Add some color and personality to your yard by hanging a basket of yarn in the yard. The birds will come and use it to build their nests and then you’ll have some fun and unique bird nests in the yard! How fun!
