thrifty little yard tip

Thrifty Tip: Use flour to mark out those flower beds! Talk about a triple threat tool: whether you're going green, really cheap, or just too lazy to go out to the store, flour is the obvious replacement for those expensive aerosol paints. Plus, it provides the perfect contrast color when you're trying to visualize how your yard will look after the hard work is finished.


The flour will wash away easily in the rain and rake away if you need to remark the lines.



What are your favorite thrifty yard tools?

PS Try not to leave large piles or clumps of flour on the ground, your pets might just start eating the dirt!

Ooh I like it! The other one I've heard is to use a garden hose to mark out a path and see if you like the lay of it.

How smart are you? We usually use a hose, but this is better.

Oh this cracked me up. I've used flour on the yard before, but not for planning a bed. My (much-younger) brother in law mowed our lawn one time and missed places all over the yard. When he claimed to not be able to see the spots he missed, I happily went out and marked them with flour so that he could finish strong ;) LOL!
