Gardening is one of the outdoor activities that are relaxing and pleasant to undertake. It comes with a unique feeling especially when you see the beautiful green spot you created.  Apart from the physical commitment, cultivating a green area requires financial involvement. It needs a substantial amount of money. Don't be scared; there are more affordable and faster alternatives to growing an attractive garden.  You are about to know the secret to more affordable gardening.  Here are some money-saving tips you should consider when looking after your garden:

Water 

Water is one of the essential resources that your garden needs to flourish. You can save extra cost when you use it correctly. Watering your lawn must be done appropriately. It must not be too much or inadequate. Over-watering your yard is not beneficial to the plant and also uneconomical. Professional landscaper advised that you should water your garden in the morning. Watering your lawn in the morning is ideal because the colder air will not allow it to evaporate. 

Grass 

The height of the grass is essential since it can reduce your water requirement. The higher the grass, the lesser the amount of water needed because it has covered a significant portion of the soil, preventing evaporation of water from the ground. Also, taller grass stops weeds from developing. Therefore, you can cultivate a taller lawn to spare you additional money on weed control.

Natural care 

Homemade solutions are preferable because they reduce excessive spending on a highly toxic product. Also, it is healthier to go for natural ingredients. For instance, you can get rid of weeds with a mixture of dish soap and vinegar. Sugar is also a valuable natural product for gardening. It can strengthen grass with no adverse effect on nature, pet, and people. Sugar is straightforward to apply; all you need to do is to sprinkle it at the spot you feel it is necessary.  You only need to do this twice in a year if your lawn is not having an issue. It is essential you wet your yard immediately after sprinkling the sugar.

Plants 

If you have too many plants, caring for them may be time consuming. One crucial factor you should consider when selecting your plant is the climatic condition.  Choose the ones that will thrive in your climate and get them from a trusted grower. When you take this guideline, your plants will last, and your effort will not be fruitless.

Having a well-kept yard might not be as expensive as it seems, follow the tips above to have significant savings when looking after your garden.

Hello, My name is Chris Bohr, I’m a lifelong resident of the Tampa Bay Area, married to a wonderful woman, Michelle “Missy” Bohr and we have a two year old son who is the apple of my eye. I’m a graduate of Countryside High School in Clearwater, Florida, a Graduate of the University of Central Florida, and an active Realtor and Auctioneer. You are looking for someone to help you to either buy or sell a home, liquidate the contents of a home, or perhaps do it all. I can help! …and I want too. As a member of this great community I’ve seen quite a few changes around these parts and can help guide you through the mazes of the Real Estate World. In addition to the various licenses I’m also a proud member of the Upper Tampa Bay Chamber of Commerce, the Pinellas Realtor Organization, Florida Association of Realtors, National Association of Realtors, won several business awards and was even named the honorary Mayor of Palm Harbor many years ago. Our approach to helping you sell your home starts with a global reach to find those buyers who may be sitting in a cold basement somewhere just looking for a reason to come down to the beautiful sunshine state and stop shoveling snow. In addition to the global reach, I also include the local, “Hey look at me” method of marketing by making your home visible to more potential buyers than most properties on the market today. If you are looking to buy a home, I understand it can be very intimidating, I take the pains away and remind you that buying a home should be fun and if you put the right person on the job I can promise to do my best to walk you through the hurdles of home buying. My approach is founded on experience, of course the experience of buying and selling houses, but also going through the processes myself and recalling the times when it was the most nerve racking. I keep you informed, I answer my phone, and I actually check emails and respond in a professional and courteous manner…I guess you could call that the Golden Rule. What sets me apart from other Realtors is the ability to handle not only your purchase or sale, but also having the ability to liquidate the contents, or lighten your load in regards to contents through our licensed and reputable Estate Sale and Auction Company. I love it here in the Tampa Bay area, and you will too. Drop me a line or give me a call, and let’s get the ball rolling toward your next move! Remember, Bohr Sells Homes, in fact that’s my website. www.BohrSellsHomes.com Thank you, Chris
