  2. Research

    Whether you are planting a vegetable garden, sprucing up your landscape, or even planting trees in your backyard, doing your research will help you save money. Start by sketching out a plan. Then look into each plant that you might like to include. Answer questions like how much water will this plant need or how much sunlight?

    This tip comes from Better Homes and Gardens. They recommend saving money by making sure you do not over plant.

  5. Don’t Throw Out that Spaghetti Water

    Do not throw that spaghetti water down the drain. It is full of nutrients. Instead, water your plants with it.

    Save money on your water bill by watering directly to the root zone of your plants, shrubs, and trees. One great way to do this is by installing a direct to root watering system.
