Gardens and lawns are a costly upkeep since they need special tools to make them look beautiful and attractive. But there are alternatives as to how you can still make your lawn or garden attractive without breaking your bank.
Here is our pick of top useful but cheap outdoor tricks for your garden.
1. Cork Markers
It’s usually hard to keep track as to what you have planted on a certain part of the soil since all seeds kinda looks the same – small and hard.
These label cork markers are cheap and pretty much do a better job than any label creator. It’s not even bad on the eyes either.
2. Recycled plant pot
Recycled plant pot comes pretty much in handy when you need a low cost alternative to pots and these are very much accessible in your household.
You can use the cardboard roll found at the end of your toilet paper or half of an eggshell or even lemon skin to use just like a plant pot.
Mother Earth would be so proud!
3. Glow in the dark steps
Are you afraid of the dark? Paint your steps towards your house or the driveway with glow in the dark paint. These paints uses the suns high intensity heat to charge up so that it glows prettily during the night.
4. Gutter pathway
Gutters spew lots of water especially if it’s raining hard and it’s not a pretty sight.
Good thing there’s a good way to make it look better. You can design your front yard just like a mini river so that when the water comes out of the gutter, there will be a beautiful river going down towards the street onto the drainage.
5. Rain water in Trash can
Use Trash cans to catch rain water especially from the gutter. This way this water will be used to water the plants that are found in your garden.
