Many Americans are either working full time or receiving the extra $600 per week in unemployment. If you fall in one of those categories, you probably don’t need the stimulus payment to keep up with your necessary bills. If you have up to $3400 in your pocket, it can be tempting to blow the money on things you’ve been wanting to buy. However, it is much better to invest that money into something that will benefit you and your family.
One of the best uses of your stimulus money is improving your landscaping with fresh tropical shrubs or trees. Making improvements to your yard can give you years of enjoyment. It also has some additional benefits.
One of the biggest advantages of upgrading your lawn features is enhanced curb appeal. The better your lawn and garden look from the street, the more likely you’ll be able to get a good fast deal. If you have plans to sell your home in the next few years, now is the time for new plantings, so they can be well established by the time you’re ready to sell.
Another benefit of improving your landscaping is that you may be able to correct issues with soil erosion in your lawn or pests in your garden. Soil erosion can often be stopped by planting tropical shrubs or trees at the point where the erosion starts. The roots of the shrub or tree will stop up the soil.
You can also keep pests from your garden and improve its health by planting shrubs nearby. The shrubs can offer some needed shade for some plants. In addition, the shrub will take up all of the excess minerals and nutrients that could kill some weaker or smaller plants.
