DIY Herb Gardens to Save Money for Homeowners

DIY-Herb-Gardens-for-HomeownersIf you’re like most homeowners, you’re always on the lookout for ways to save money. Sometimes this can be difficult, especially when you’re trying to feed your family healthy meals with produce free from pesticides and harmful chemicals. Growing your own herb garden is the best of both worlds, allowing you to provide your family with delicious and varied meals full of healthful herbs that you can be sure are free from toxins. Another appealing factor for homeowners is that herb gardens can be a charming addition to your kitchen or patio in a beautiful container garden that can be as small or large as suits your style.

Herb gardens are easy to start. Choose a few favorites to begin, like basil, rosemary, oregano, cilantro or dill. Put them in the sunniest spot you can find, and don’t fuss over them too much; one of the best things about this kind of garden is that it doesn’t require much attention or energy. Some herbs, like mint, will really take off, and may even threaten to take over, if more than one herb is sharing a pot with it! Having herbs growing in your kitchen or garden will save you a great deal of money and are convenient  compared to buying fresh herbs from the store or farmer’s market every time you need them for a recipe. Even better, you’ll know exactly where they came from and what they’ve been exposed to.

You can choose your own containers and fit the garden easily into your décor. Maybe you have a yard with space for a garden or a patio that can accommodate a sizable container garden; either of these can be stocked with a variety of herbs and maybe even some vegetables, if space permits. If your area is more limited, you might choose a smaller, decorative solution like teacups on hooks or hanging planters. For an inexpensive yet attractive herb garden, you might even like to try this ingenious idea, using tin cans to create a surprisingly sophisticated look.
