When we bought our home one of the selling points was our lovely garden and over the past nine years we have cultivated it to create a calm space. It started off quite plain but we have developed this and turned it into a garden that we adore.
The first thing we did was to employ a local gardener that had been recommended to us and he started on our garden design, we wanted a patio seating area and also some borders added into the garden. We opted for a seating area in the center of the garden which looks lovely with a border around it.
Next, we made a large patio at the side of the garden because the sun rarely shined over there and it was hard to grow even grass! This area is where we have a hot-tub now! When you are doing some garden work it is advisable to get a few garden quotes to ensure that you are getting value for money.
Everyone knows that a garden is a great way to save money on basics from vegetables to herbs. Even small gardeners sometimes find themselves with more than they need to feed their families. You can have several great opportunities to make money with your garden particularly if you grow a lot of herbs or flowering plants.
If you have a green thumb you can easily make money by selling uncommon plants you cultivate. Cheap plastic pots and a quality garden soil are all you need to turn the plants you already grow and love into sellable plants for other people’s gardens. Berry bushes, medicinal herbs, and beautiful flowers all sell well in local buy, sell trade groups.
If you find yourself with an overabundance of produce beyond what your family can enjoy selling the extras is a great way to earn a little extra money and help others have high-quality homegrown food. Post on your facebook page that you have extras for sale and often friends and family will jump at the opportunity to snag them up. If that fails local buy sell, trade pages do well and someone will be happy to score a deal on homegrown food.
Do you have a large compost bin? Selling quality compost is a great way to make extra money when you have more compost than you can use.
Have an abundance of fresh herbs and flowers. Crafting everything from decor to beautiful candles. If you love to make your own soaps and bath bombs fresh garden herbs and flowers can make an amazing addition to your products. These quality products sell for a great price in ETSY shops.
Are you a great gardener with the patience to teach others. Teaching garden classes, writing a book, or blog about gardening are all great ways to make money off of your garden while helping others learn to grow a beautiful thriving garden.
