Then this video is for you! Here’s 5 ways you can minimize your expenses while working on your projects: 1. Use buy and sell websites and local groups to find items for free or cheap. 2. Buy in bulk from a landscaping supplies store. Split with a friend if necessary. 3. Watch out for renovators – they might want to dispose of a lot of their materials quickly, which mostly means free stuff! 4. Look at garage sales – each one is different, and you’ll probably find a gem! 5. Spring cleaning drive – some local councils set an annual collection date. Like garage sales, these always vary every year and you might find some interesting stuff. And of course, there’s also bonus tips from Kai of The 24K Life. Kai talks about other ways where you can gather building materials and save a lot in the process. 1. Look for scraps from construction – do this after the framing process as they won’t have use for them anymore. A good way to tell is if you see the windows, doors, and roof installed. Ask the crew at the end of the work day as they are packing up and ask for scraps. 2. Look for wooden pallets from industrial areas, and distribution centres. You’ll have better luck with smaller distributors, particularly local ones. Some pallets are marked, which indicates how they are treated. Look for HT (heat-treated) or KD (kiln-dried). Avoid MB (Methyl-bromide fumigation). 3. Look for pallets from Home Depot, Bunnings, or any big box […]

    Great video. What is that plant with the cone flowers that is yellow on the bottom and red/pink on the top that you pan to at 1:47?

    Love it that’s what I do for a living design native wildlife meadows and edible gardens we need more people like you lawns do nothing for the environment but harm with all the fertilizers and pesticides people use just to make it green love the all natural approach you are the man also tip to kill the walkway weeds naturally use vinegar it will kill anything growing in the walkways in a matter of hours don’t spray in gardens though because it doesn’t discriminate between what you want and don’t want and you could also plant some mosses in the cracks to prevent weeds in the future

    Thanks for sharing. We live in Boise so we deal with similar climate conditions. How beautifully you show the well done xeriscape.

    Great to see that… I made it too. Plans from woodprix helped me a lot 🙂

  • You think it's hard landscaping in the city? Try it in the country…Every time I landscape something, the animals eat every blasted thing. Now that's expensive….

    We built an entire chicken coop using discounted wood at home depot! Only had to buy the chicken wire for full price which was still only about $20 and we have plenty left for other projects.
