These are my new rock beds. I gathered rocks for free and laid them around the trees. The soil was 1 Cent!
Long story short, my husband found a 20 dollar bill on the ground in a parking lot the other day. He looked around and there was no one anywhere near that it could have dropped from. So he kept it(-: I mean like what are you going to do... go back into the store and ask if anyone dropped $20.00 in the parking lot? Yeah didn't think so...so.....anyhow he gave it to me to buy the soil with.(-: I went to the landscaping materials store and got a 1/2 yard of soil which totaled 20.03. I didn't have any change (how weird is that?) except one penny! The guy said no problem he had a cup of pennies on the counter for situations like this. (how sweet was that?) So, the whole thing was only 1 cent.
I am calling this my One Cent Garden! I moved a few garden ornaments and I planted a few transplants from around the yard already. I have a lot more to do but this is the basic thing. I love things that are free, but 1 cent...how can I complain? Well my back is complaining from all the lifting and moving of the rocks and dirt but oh well...(-: I am happy(-:
