As for gardeners, pool noodles help save on soil and improve drainage in pots.
Simply cut up a pool noodle into smaller pieces, pop in the bottom third of a large plant pot and then fill with soil.
With the pool noodles at the base of the pot, you’ll need less soil, which will save you money.
Plus there’ll be plenty of space to allow water to flow out of the pot more easily, preventing the plant from getting root rot.
