Growing a pretty garden doesn't have to cost a pretty penny--learn how to create a low-cost garden using a little elbow grease, a lot of creativity, and this book.

Gardening on a Shoestring will ease the tension on any gardener's pocketbook, while inspiring them with fun, creative projects for up-cycling, gardening ideas, tips, and alternative designs that will make gardening a pleasure--and an economical one, to boot!

By combining classic gardening skills with ultra-creative ideas, author Alex Mitchell teaches readers 100 ways to up-cycle their gardens by creating ingenious green-thumb DIY projects and grow lush gardens. From up-cycling common objects (such as tin cans, old potato sacks, and colanders) to revisiting basic garden techniques (growing from seed, for example), a garden's overall cost can drop dramatically. Thanks to photography, illustrations, and plenty of additional tips, this book has plenty of fodder for readers to create a better garden.

Included in Gardening on a Shoestring are outdoor furnishing projects, edible gardening information, and sage advice for garden upkeep. Examples of what you'll find include:

Vintage tin herb garden

Tapestry of succulents

Garden center shopping tips

Water-bottle watering system

Gardening stools from old tires

How to notspend a fortune online

. . . and much more!

Whether you're a new homeowner tackling the mortgage monster, a renter not wanting to leave permanent traces in your temporary home, or a cost-conscious gardener looking for a slew of creative tips, this book belongs on your bookshelf.
