Grow What You Eat
One of the best ways to save money while having a beautiful garden is to grow what you and your family eat. If you eat lots of salad, then this is what you should grow. Or, maybe your family loves salsa? In this case, having peppers, tomatoes, and onions will be very helpful!
Growing edible perennials is also a fantastic way to save money. Fruit, for instance, offers such a great return with very little work needed! Whether your family loves apples, peaches, raspberries, or blueberries, you plant them once and enjoy them year after year.
