If you need to update your current garden furniture or are planning to buy some for next year, here are some great ways you can save some cash while also adding furniture to your porch or patio this summer.

Purchase Garden Fundamentals Out Of Season

Garden furniture is a seasonal business and so buying out of season will usually see lower costs. Buy garden furniture, BBQ’s and grills toward the end of the summer months to save a lot of money. Most retailers offer end of season rebates, so by holding off on those enormous buys, you could grab yourself a fantastic deal.

Separate Your Perennials

Dig out your wide-covering and expansive perennials and separate them from the roots using a spade or fork – doing this will give you a few small plants which you would then be able to give to friends or move to another piece of the garden. Reusing and altering the plants you already have, instead of buying new things will save you a lot of money in the long run.

Put Your Money Into Best Buy Items

The consumer website ‘Which?’ Tests a scope of garden items for you, to ensure that you can spend your money on the right things. However, you don’t need to just listen to internet reviews and you don’t just need to spend loads of money to get decent items. Lawnmowers can range wildly in price: on Amazon, for example, you can find one for £50 or one for £900, but the £50 still has over 4.5 stars out of 5 from over 400 reviews. A small amount of research on your part will yield the best results.

Develop From Seed

Planting seeds as opposed to purchasing more develop plants will spare up loads of money. Often times, a bag of seeds will contain more than if needed, so why not share them, with a friend or loved one who also enjoys horticulture? A bag of 10,000 Poppy Seeds, for example could cost you less than £2.00, whereas a set of three fully-grown Poppy plants can be as much as £20. You don’t need to be a math whizz to see the benefits.

Reuse Your Left Over Fertilizer

Reusing last year’s will not be a terrible plan, but it certainly won’t be the 100% most effective way of helping your plants. So, do you throw it out? Certainly not! Just cut it with a newer bag and use that to get great results without wasting last year’s fertilizer. That is, of course, unless it’s a wet fertilizer or has been exposed to the wet. In which case it will have negative impacts and you should just throw it on your compost pile instead.

Update Your Furniture

To switch up your garden decor, you don’t need to buy a totally new garden furniture set. Instead, check whether you can work with what you have and maybe update it. If your garden set is made out of metal, you can buy shower paint, mainly intended for outdoor furniture, to revitalize the look. If you have porch furniture that is made out of wood, you can recolour it an alternate shading to give it a different look.

Another excellent method to give your garden furniture a second life is by buying new cushions and pads for your porch furniture. It is a great deal less expensive to update just your porch cushions and pillows than it is to get an altogether new set.

Shop At The End Of Summer

Finally, and admittedly similar to buying out of season, be sure to shop just at the close of summer, when shops know the garden furniture will have a sharp decline in purchases. The prices will drop too, as the shops try to get rid of their excess stock and make way for the winter collection., allowing you to swoop in a grab some great deals.

Finally, it must be kept in mind that styling your garden furniture is a creative task. Creating an effective and balanced layout is the key to enhancing the patina and beauty of your oak furniture.
