Low Cost Flower Bed

Photo Description
It was getting dark when I took this picture. The strange arrangement of colors is due to the fact that the flowers weren't labeled and not in bloom when I bought them. At the base of the rocks are some newly planted Ajuga reptans. They will soon spread and cover the bare ground.

What is interesting here can't be seen in the picture. The Ajuga was a gift. The Pansies and Viola were on clearance last Fall for 10 cents per six cell pack. It's not the prettiest little niche garden, but when I consider it cost less than a dollar; I appreciate that I can be thrifty.
Most of all, I appreciate Mother Nature.

Even if you don't have garden space you can get a few homegrown foods by adding a few choice vegetable plants to the scheme of your flower bed. Just pick your fav vegies in unusual varieties.

Imagine endless garden beds filled with beautiful fragrant flowers that come up effortlessly year after year without any help from you. While it might not be realistic to dream for zero maintenance, a low-maintenance flower garden can be a dream come true.

Fail Proof Flower Bed. For an awesome, fail proof flower bed, select a location for your flower bed, being careful to remember what you want to grow, with or without sun. My favorite flower beds are under trees, surrounded with blocks.
