Simple and Cheap Landscaping Ideas That Fit Your Budget
Creating beautiful living spaces helps turn a nice property into a great property. Nurturing an outdoor space that complements your indoor space makes your property an oasis. Often though, our budget isn’t up to the task of building our dream. When it comes to landscaping, there are some ways to make your budget go a bit further toward what you want.
Finding the right plants for your landscape design is an important step toward creating a peaceful outdoor space. Plants, particularly annuals, can also be one of the largest expenses. To make your budget stretch, try planting perennials instead. These are plants that come back each year rather than dying off after one season. Bulbs such as tulips, daffodils, and hyacinths are wonderful ways to add color and beauty that will come back year after year. Herb plants such as lavender are another good investment that will save you money in the long run.
Mulch is a helpful addition to your flowerbeds, but can be a not-so-helpful price addition to your budget. There are several less costly things to mulch your flowers with that will offer the protection against weeds and a way to keep moisture in your soil.
Sourcing recycled material is a must do if you are trying to stay within budget on your landscaping project. It’s not always easy to source repurposed material but we recommend reaching out to some recycling centers and landfills as they often will recycle construction debris to generate awesome landscaping material.
Landscape design doesn’t have to be a budget-buster. Repurposing and recycling can give you a great start on the job. Let your imagination lead you to creative ways to stretch your dollars and still have the beautiful space you’re looking for.
