Budget Gardening Ideas
Spray-paint plant pots
For a few pounds, existing garden plants may be given a cosmetic makeover with a can of spray paint. Before spraying, thoroughly clean the terracotta posts to avoid having them appear to have a shoddy paint job.
Tree arch with sticks
For upscale choices, outdoor arches might cost more than £50. But with a little thread and superglue, you can easily recreate a woodland bridge design for nothing if you gather twigs and branches from the garden.
Garden wellies for plant pots
To save buying new ones, take a pair of wellies that you no longer wear and transform them into artistic planters. To freshen the look, choose to paint the wellies blue and pink.
Fresh coat for garden furniture
After a renovation, existing garden furniture could seem revitalised. Make the most of what is already there to save money by giving it a new coat of paint to revitalise the appearance.
Purchase some inexpensive outdoor pillowcases to use as seating in the garden. On days with more sunlight, it’s a cosy substitute.
Get several glass bottles and fill them with battery-operated lights to create a cosy outdoor setting for a fraction of the price of purchasing rows of outdoor lights.
A little glass pot packed with soil and plants may be a lovely accent to put on window sills outside that can be decorated whatever you choose. Usually, the total cost of the materials is under ten pounds.
Reusable water fountain – made of recycled materials
Use recycled materials, such as empty wine bottles, to produce flowing water flow to create a unique and alluring twist on a water fountain to lower the cost in half.
Epsom Salt Fertilizer Trick
Although epsom salt (hydrated magnesium sulphate) is well recognised for its use in home remedies, the garden may be where it shines the brightest. Similar to commercial fertilisers, Epsom salt includes magnesium, which promotes chlorophyll formation, seed germination, and nutrient uptake such as nitrogen and phosphorus.
