Having a deep planter or garden box can really elevate your plants. Unfortunately, it can also make you spend hundreds of dollars on soil just to fill the planters. If you want to avoid it, recycle some of your old soda cans and layer the bottom of your planter with them.

This hack means you can use less soil but it also provides good drainage and air flow. If you don’t want to use old soda cans, you can even just buy some cheap plastic plant pots for the dollar store to raise the bottom.
