When you’re doing garden design work at home or constructing something that requires you to remove plants, think about giving the plants away. There is a real desire from people in your community to take healthy plants and use them in their own yards. All you have to do is dig up the bushes, flowers or small trees and wrap burlap around the roots. Or, even easier: Post your free plants on a site like Freecycle or Craigslist with the contingency that any takers come and dig the plants up themselves.
