Garden ideas welcomed
My sister asked me to help her with her garden (or lack of it this summer). She had a house addition added a couple of years ago and the backyard is full of 2 hills of sand. Her money is limited right now.
I would dearly love to get rid of the sand but that costs money, even to get a skip and have it hauled. So we will be moving the sand around and putting topsoil on top for the garden beds.
I wintersow seeds and expect to have extra plants to share with her.
I was thinking, for this year, to use containers and establish a couple of garden beds. The containers will be used to move around as the yard progresses over the summer. The main garden beds to start I was thinking of placing where the line of sight is when you look out the back window.
Does anyone have any ideas for cheap planters? I am saving the buckets I get for my kitty litter to paint up for my own garden plants. I will also be scouring the neighbourhood when the renovations start in spring and there is wood tossed out - I will ask folk first if I can take some.
Any suggestions would be welcomed.
