States that permit medical marijuana use typically allow patients to grow up to a certain number of plants at home. Many users grow in their own backyards. Growing marijuana outside is considerably less expensive than an indoor operation, mainly because access to direct sunlight cuts out the need for electricity. In addition, rain reduces water needs.

Typical costs:

  • One of the primary costs of outdoor growing is property and costs vary depending on the acreage of the property. Most people grow marijuana on their own property -- either in their own backyard or on rented land.
  • Nutrient-rich soil in ideal for growing marijuana and typically costs $5-$20 per cubic foot of soil. For example, Amazon sells nutrient-rich soil[1] for about $18. Home Depot sells 2 cubic feet[2] for $7.
  • Some medical marijuana dispensaries sell seeds or seedlings, also called clones, but the sale is typically regulated by municipality. Seeds generally cost $6-$15 each, although they are often are sold in packs of several seeds.
  • Because of the exposed nature of outdoor marijuana growing operations, security is typically a key cost. A home security camera can cost as little as $30 or as much as $1,000 for a surveillance system. Security guards might provide another option for protection and are typically paid $10-$100 per hour. Some marijuana cultivators use fences to block access. A 6' chain-link fence generally costs $8-$15 per foot.
