If you’re itching to improve your outdoor space this spring, TurfMutt has four tips to help you save time and money.

Spring planting tips

TurfMutt shares tips for saving money and time this spring.

  • Map our your plan. Drawing your plan out on paper can help ensure you don’t buy too much or not enough for the space you’re creating.
  • Consult the professionals. Check out TurfMutt’s ecosystem map or talk to your local nursery about what plants are native to your area. Also, if your design is complicated you might want to hire a landscape designer or architect to consult on your project. A little upfront investment could save you time and money in the long-run.
  • Shop around. Check prices and availability at your local specialty stores, as well as the big retailers to search for the best overall value. Sometimes paying a little more for higher-quality products is well worth it.
  • Make it a family affair. Involving your children in the design, selection and planting of your outdoor space is a good idea for many reasons. It gets your children away from the television, video games and computer screens. It also gives them a vested interest in the project and in the value of your own personal green space. This will likely result in them wanting to spend even more time in the yard. In addition you’ll have an extra set of hands or two to help do the cleaning up, planting and weeding!
