Lawn To Garden in A Single Weekend

  1. Interesting article and very achievable but I am amazed at the prices of lumber and soil over there…. they must be a quarter of the costs of similar stuff over here

      I wasn’t aware of such a sharp difference in costs of such basic materials between here and there! I suppose one could get resourceful using craigslist to find free soil & discarded wood pallets. The soil I imagine would require some considerable amendments before adding it to your garden – and, of course, re-purposing old pallets takes a bit more work but I’ve seen some amazingly clever things made from them for gardens both big and small!

      1. We have a few free recycling sites that I have used over the last few years. However, the council run allotments are the best place to get stuff like pallets. Free wood chip for paths and great deals on compost and manure.
