This is the time of year when people start to think about the number of ways that they can ‘autumn-ify’ their garden to make it look precisely the way that they want it to look. It can be a challenge to change things up every season, but it may make sense to do so in order to get the best possible experience from your garden. Today, we will look at a few ways that you can autumn-ify your garden on a budget.
1. Reuse Old Fall Decor as Planters
It isn’t necessary to start from scratch with every single project that you get to work on. Instead, you can look at reusing some of the materials that are already in your possession to make life a bit easier on yourself. When looking at budget-friendly ways to handle your gardening projects, it’s probably best to start by reusing some of the old decor that you already have around the house in the first place.
The fall decor that you have already purchased may be repurposed as planters for your future garden projects. Don’t think that you need to begin everything from the start every time.
2. Save Seeds From Fall Foods
If you have grown fall foods in your garden in the past, you can save seeds from those foods to use again the next year. You’ll want to check out the relevant information you need about when and how to plant them. However, you can easily see how doing so can make it a bit easier for you to get the kind of results that you require from the seeds that you have planted in your garden.
Saving seeds is useful because you are likely to use the same types of fall foods year after year. If you save the seeds from one harvest to another, then you will save money over buying the same foods.
3. Look Into Local Perennials
At this very moment, there are 1.8 billion websites operating at the same time all over the world. If you start poking around, you’re sure to find some way to find the local perennials to plant in your garden for each year. Purchasing these plants from someone locally can save you money on travel or shipping expenses, and you can potentially obtain the plants that you require at a price that you can reasonably afford. Check with local dealers to see which plants you can get in your area.
4. Discover Free Plants
There are certainly times and places when it’s possible to obtain free plants that you can put into your garden. If you’re strategic about the way that you search for free plants that are available, then you may not have to put out any money at all in order to grow the garden that you want. Instead, just make sure you are keeping an eye out for every opportunity that you can take advantage of. Check out Facebook Marketplace for plant swaps or for free cuttings. You’ll be surprised by what you can find.
Now that fall is officially here, you can start getting your garden ready for the chillier seasons. Try out some of our tips above to help autumn-ify your space.
