Mum shops around for deals and transforms her weed-infested garden for under £700.
A MUM has converted her weed-infested, chaotic garden into a beautiful pastel paradise while saving £2,000 in the process. To remodel her outside environment, the Blackpool mother used eBay, Groupon, and Home Bargains deals.
Mum-of-one Anna Orjak, 38, from Blackpool, shared her stunning garden renovation with money-saving website LatestDeals.co.uk. The mother of a five-year-old girl works as a Naturopath and YouTuber, and she frequently publishes her efforts on both platforms. Anna mentioned she “loves pink and other bright colors” and wished for a “joyful and happy” bright, colorful sunny garden.
Anna transformed the previously drab garden into a pastel paradise with the help of her mother, her own DIY abilities, and some shopping.
So, how did she do it on a shoestring budget?
Anna stated that she did not receive an estimate for the project, but that an identical job was completed for £3000 by a friend.
Anna’s transformation was predicted to cost £650 in total.
Anna said she purchased her plants on Groupon and eBay for roughly £50 altogether.
She was able to get some decorative stones from B&Q as well.
A large 22.5kg bag of rounded pebbles costs roughly £10 at the home improvement store.
Anna was also able to receive some of her materials for free, such as bricks and an old pallet that she painted pink.
“My friend assisted me in making the decking, which saved me a couple of hundred dollars in labor and installation fees,” the mother explained.
“I paid roughly £100 for the decking from Savoy.”
The first step in the change was to remove all of the trash that the previous renter had left behind.
A three-seater sofa was among the trash, which was buried behind a large shrub.
“It seems like no one has cared for this garden in years!” Anna expressed her thoughts.
Anna spent roughly £100 on new fence panels that she painted in a variety of colors, including yellow and pink.
The decking was then built by Anna and a friend, and it has since become the ideal area for her daughter to play.
Plants and turf were used to complete Anna’s look.
“I complimented the area by buying up some inexpensive outside plants in Lidl and bulbs in Poundland for less than £20,” she stated.
“I lay out the turf with my mother’s help, which was the most difficult aspect.”
“Because the land was overgrown with weeds, the preparation required a week,” says Brinkwire Summary News.
