Dig Into Earth Day

April 20, 2018

Celebrate Earth Day on April 22 by flexing your green thumb in the garden. From a large yard to a small balcony or patio, gardening may be done in virtually any space available and may help save money throughout the year on fresh vegetables, fruit and herbs.

Consider planning out your garden to help turn your outdoor space into a beautiful, bountiful garden. If you’re new to gardening, you may decide to start small growing one or two plants in a planter, which can easily be stored on balconies, patios, decks and other outdoor spaces. Affordable and stylish planters like this barrel planter can be the perfect start to any garden. Those with larger yards and gardening areas may consider building a small raised bed that can yield more produce.

After deciding the size of the garden, plan the types of plants you would like to grow. Find seeds and bulbs for various fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers at your local Dollar General. To best care for your garden, consider a metal trigger nozzle for your hose or an oscillating sprinkler to make watering your garden easier and convenient.

Add the finishing touches with decorative additions like garden statues and patriotic birdhouses. Don’t forget bird feed and other lawn care items that can help keep your garden in tip-top shape.
