You don’t have to spend a lot of money on landscaping to enjoy a beautiful yard year round. You can create an attractive and highly functional yard without breaking the bank. Here are five tips for getting the most bang out of your landscaping budget.
Budget-Friendly Landscaping Tips
1. Select Plants That are Native to the Lee’s Summit & Kansas City Areas.
When you select non-native plants, they will cost you more upfront and you’ll also spend more time and money maintaining them. Select plants wisely, choosing ones that are native to your area and perfect for your climate and you’ll save significant money.
2. Upcycle Found Items
You don’t have to purchase all of your landscaping items at a home and garden store. Instead you can repurpose found and salvaged items you have or can find for cheap. You could use old pots, gardening boots or bowls for planters for a whimsical and budget friendly look. Upcycling means that you can save lots of money, and it will help you create unique and beautiful landscaping.
3. Take a “Less is More” Approach
Sometimes minimalism is the most attractive landscaping option. You don’t need to fill every part of your yard with expensive flowers. Instead, place small groups of flowers strategically for maximum impact and minimal expense. Create a strong focal point and leave the rest of the landscaping more minimal.
4. Shop for Deals on Hardscaping
Hardscaping elements such as benches, bird feeders, arches and wheelbarrows add a lot to your landcaping. Once you have them, they are free each additional year, unlike most plants. To get the best deals, shop end of season clearance sales, garage sales and home resale shops.
