I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with Spring. I love the warm weather, getting rid of the coats, boots and snow shovels. However it also means it is time for lawn and garden care. While I like having a lavish green lawn free of weeds with beautiful garden, I don’t like planting, watering or weeding. See the problem here?!? Well this year I know we will be playing outside more then ever with Monkey and Little Bear and I want to have a nice lawn for our mini games of soccer and to have picnic lunches outside on. Thankfully Walmart Canada is getting me started this spring on the right foot with the #WalmartFrugalHeroes challenge.To accept this challenge you had to set a shopping goal for yourself and try to get everything you needed at Walmart Canada for $100. My goal… To beautify my lawn for $100!
I went off to Walmart with Hubs to get everything we needed to make my lawn more lush and green this year! We we able to find everything we needed very quickly. We picked up fertilizer, grass seed, a seed spreader and leaf bags (because you can never seem to have enough of those).
We also needed a new rake and sprinkler – deciding what rake to get was easy, but picking out a sprinkler… not so much. After much discussion Hubs and I agreed on the pulsating sprinkler, and I have to say I am impressed by the how well it works. A couple of bags of potting soil closed out our shopping trip for a grand total of $102.45!
Then came the tough part – actually working on the lawn. Luckily I have a couple of helpers that we were willing jump in and help rake, bag and weed to get the lawn prepped. Once it ready we did a quick application of seed and fertilizer and now we water and water and water some more!
Wish me luck as we create a fun area to play and have picnics on this year! How is your lawn doing? Do you need to put much work into it this year?
