Here is a potential thrift friendly way to add landscaping to
your property. If you live in a city and have an easement running along
the front, back or side of your property (usually for utility lines), check with
your city (the Public Work's Dept) to see if they offer free tree planting for
some additional frugal tips to save money on
- Always buy bare root trees in
- Plant fruit trees in your
landscape instead of decorative trees.
- Buy trees that drop their
leaves in the winter to let in the sun and warm your house, but shade it in the
summer and lower utility bills.
