How can I make my garden maintenance free and low cost.

KimJudy HallSuzanne Ellis


I am disabled and very low income. When I try to weed my garden, I have fallen. I have to get rid of weeds and a severe ant problem. I want it to be a place to enjoy. The garden is small 10x 30 but to much for me.

    Check with your non profit organizations such as the Boy Scouts or Habitat For Humanity, or even your Church. Maybe a local teenager would like to earn some money for the summer.

    Thanks for your response. That's why I asked the question. My income is only $890 a month and I can't afford to hire anyone. That's why I asked for something I could do that doesn't cost alot. I thought someone would tell me how to get rid of the weeds that does not cost a lot but works. Ants are all over my mobilehome park and thought maybe someone knew something I have not tried.

      Is this a landscape garden or vegetable garden? You can purchase a product called Preen. It's grandular and will help to keep weed seeds from sprouting. My landscape beds are full of hosta plants and other perrenials, leaving little or no place for weeds to grow. For the few that do come up, I spray them
