Landscaping Tricks

For the cheapskates with a yard or aesthetic garden, there are several landscaping tricks you can use to cut back costs without sacrificing curb appeal. If you live near a university, park, or municipal building with a lot of flowers, relocate a few into your own flower bed. It’s not stealing because, as a living biological entity, no one can technically own a flower. Likewise, your local golf course or city park won’t mind if a few chunks of sod go missing; they just write it off. If you’re not comfortable borrowing grass or flowers, you can buy and plant perennials instead of seasonals – for unlike seasonals, perennials grow back each spring. Transplanting, cloning, and grafting techniques can also help by multiplying your floral-scape at little to no cost.
