Don’t buy what you don’t need. It doesn’t matter how good they are, if you don’t need seeds, tools and many other varieties. This is a waste of money that could be better spent elsewhere to spend money you don’t need to spend.

Do not pay if you can avoid shipping. You may find a few items cheaper online, but be very aware of the shipping costs. If it costs more when all is said and done, it costs more to buy the same items locally. You saved nothing. Look at the bigger picture than just looking for the cheapest asking price. It’s best to support small local businesses as often as possible, as they can bargain, bargain and throw free.

Check locally for free composting materials. Many communities offer these to residents for free. Earning a summer is very important when compared to the cost of buying these things.

Make an exchange between gardening friends. This is a great way to incorporate fresh plants into your summer garden without having to buy every plant you want to include. This is a great way to make new gardening friends, share a passion and save money. This is a win-win situation for most gardeners who are constantly fighting over the high costs of gardening.

Choose native plants in your area for your summer garden. This is a great money saver that is often overlooked. In the best case scenario, the cost of non-native plants can be excessive, and additional care can incur additional costs. Reduce costs by choosing plants that are easy to grow and locally grown in your climate. This is definitely all or nothing. If you absolutely love two non-native plants, include them in your garden. However, if you are planning a garden from scratch, choose as many native plants as possible for filler.

Check your local classified ads and free-cycle program for used garden equipment. There are many reasons why people sell or give away gardening equipment and these bargains are just a bargain. You don’t have to be incredibly concerned about the equipment you buy, saving money is always a good thing. This is even better when you get them at no cost. A few free plants are also available through these sources.

Mulching saves time and money. Really! This saves water for mulch as mulch retains moisture. This reduces the cost of watering and eliminates the irritating weeds that are harvested – this saves time. We all know that time is money, and most of us despise weed control unless we have some aggressive emotions to work through it.

By using all of the above steps, you should find that you have saved a lot of money in the planning and growth of your summer garden. Combine them with your own tips that you found along the way, and your garden will be even cheaper next summer.
