Rent a garden: These costs await you

A small garden with a gazebo, some fruits and vegetables and a place for grilling: this is the dream of many city dwellers. We inform you about the costs of an allotment garden, which are higher in the first year and then settle down.

These are the cost factors for the allotment garden

An allotment usually requires an annual lease. In addition, there is often a one-time administration fee for the mediation of the property. Many new owners of a small garden also complete an allotment garden insurance.

You probably still pay the previous owner of your allotment a certain price for the gazebo he has built. Other structures can also be used for a distance payment, depending on the local customs.

Further costs are due to you for the planting and management of the allotment garden. You will probably do most of the work yourself, but at least you will need plant seeds, garden tools, electricity and water.
