ou can add well-rotted manure (very inexpensive) or compost to enrich the soil. The coir will aid in structure and moisture holding ability.

You don't need fancy edging around your garden. Just edge it with a straight edging tool or spade. And you can lightly work in the amendments without too much tilling, which will unearth weed seeds. To further save money, plant seeds in your garden instead of buying transplants. Or start the seeds indoors.
