A cost saving tip for gardeners

If you’re on a tight budget these days, as many of us are, you may be considering skipping the annual mulch or compost treatment for your yard.  But the City of Raleigh comes to the rescue!  The Yard Waste Center (New Hope Road) is offering a “buy one get one” coupon in the Saturday Home and Garden section through the end of April.  Thanks to my neighbor and landscape guru, Tom Pope, we got 2 truckloads full of shredded hardwood for only $16 this weekend!  $16!  That’s less than the cost 1 cubic yard at a retail mulch store!  And after shoveling most of the weekend, I can testify that we got  at least 5 full yards!  Now the quality isn’t the sames as at retail, but what a wonderful service the City offers!  Time to get the shovel and wheelbarrow out!
