Hello again, savvy savers! For this weeks Greener Living Tip, I wanted to share with you two more ways I am able to save by recycling! In lieu of this being the week of Earth Day, I felt this was more than appropriate! The first way I have found to recycle is to purchase landscape edging made of recycled tires, this edging costs $2.98 a yard, half as much as my previous small fencing, the good ole’ hammer-in method, and in my opinion, both holds in mulch better, while looking better as well! Every year it seemed my husband and I had to replace the edging, which added up to nearly $60.00 a year, and so that’s $60.00 I will be saving this year!
Another way I save money around my yard is by making my own mulch! I invested in a blower/mulching device, and the mulch you see is mulched leaves, bark, and sticks found around my yard earlier this month, and it looks just like the bark mulch shreds previously purchased at Lowe’s! I saved $60.00 by making my own mulch for just 1/4 of my flower beds in the front of my home! So, by using just these two methods I save more than $120.00 around my yard annually, and that money can be channeled back into other projects, such as my Indoor Greenhouse system!
Here’s to greener living!
