Budget Friendly Garden Projects

Budget Friendly Garden Projects


It’s my favorite time of the year; when the sun is shinning, the flowers are blooming and we get to spend endless hours outside in our gardens. Being outdoors is my happy place! I love growing plants, working on projects, repurposing and upcycling items, enjoying a picnic outside with my family.

I’ve noticed trying to have a picture perfect garden and yard can get costly. It shouldn’t be though, there are many different ways to have a beautiful space without breaking the bank. I’ve got over 40 different budget friendly garden project ideas for you from some amazing bloggers! I love every single project; from the bee projects, to the herb projects to all the amazing ways to repurpose items that people would typically just throw away.
