Saving On Home Projects: A Guide

Posted on February 19th, 2020 by Devine Bros

With spring approaching the CT area in a few short weeks, we’re praying that some of that luck associated with the upcoming holiday brings a bit of warmth as well! And while there are a few weeks between us and that weather, it’s certainly never too early to begin thinking about a new project at home, and how you can save a little cash doing so! Here are a few cost-effective projects to think about.


Whether you’re thinking of using rocks to fill in a dip in your driveway, or using it as drainage or a walkway, rocks can save you a bit of money over fancy paving stones. Of course this addition comes down to overall taste, but it’s never a bad idea to think about saving on something that still improves the look and gets the job done! Talk to us about your options for rocks.

Reclaimed Wood

As many projects call for, reclaimed wood projects can be the fun addition for everyone at home! This wood can be found from online marketplaces, or in the form of old pallets no longer needed by companies. Use this wood to create benches, small tables, shelving, plant surrounds, and other items! The best part is, you only need sandpaper, a stain or paint, and something to get any nails or staples out!

Bulk Buying

Topsoil, mulch, dirt, rocks, everything is better in bulk! When you plan ahead and get expert advice, it’s easy to make the right call on how much product you need, and prepare for when it’s set to arrive. This can help you out by spending on only the amount you need, without having to pay extra for not only the excess, but figuring out if it’s going to cost you money to get rid of the excess as well! Our team can help you with bulk materials — whatever that may be!
