Try these cheap tricks to keep weeds and pests away from your plants Bugs be gone Forget expensive bug zappers and pesticides. Hang a fabric softener sheet adjacent to — but not touching — outdoor light fixtures to keep flying insects like mosquitoes and moths away. They hate the scents generated when the softener sheets are heated. Keep deer away Pouring or spraying a "rotten egg" cocktail around your plants will keep deer from eating them. Just mix six raw eggs in two gallons of water and let it sit outside for a week. The smell will keep Bambi at bay. Mow it yourself Use a manual lawn mower instead of a power mower or hiring someone to do the work. It will save you money and give you some exercise. Mooch off mulch Looking for free garden mulch? Ask road crews clearing trees and brush if they'll dump their payload of wood chips at your place. They may be willing to off-load them rather than having to haul them away at the end of a job. Also check with your local government, which may shred discarded wood and wood products and give away the resulting mulch. Cover up weeds Save money on weed killers by spreading several layers of newspaper on the soil before mulching over them in the garden. This blocks weeds from growing and it helps retain moisture, so you save even more by needing to water plants less. Avoid expensive and toxic weed killers by dousing weeds with scalding water left over after boiling potatoes or pasta. Most weeds can also be killed with an inexpensive and eco-friendly spray made from 1 gallon of white distilled vinegar mixed with 1 ounce of liquid dish soap. Fall planting Most people get the urge to plant new flowers, trees and shrubs in the spring, but in most climates the best time to plant them is in the late summer or fall, when their chances of survival are better and when they're often marked down at nurseries.
