A Few Landscaping Ideas For People On A Budget

A Few Landscaping Ideas For People On A Budget

Landscape design has taken off in a big way in recent times as people see their homes exteriors as an extension of their own unique personalities. A Landscape designer is quite in demand and you will find Landscape designer as well as landscaping contractors who are ready to work for you regardless of the budget. To them, your landscape is a blank canvas on which to express their creativity, albeit with suggestions from your side. Here are a few ideas worth considering.

Geometric patterns and ground cover

Ground cover and pavers offer a wide deal of customization in addition to being light on the wallet. If you happen to have unused space on the ground in your yard, you would do well to cover that up with broken or recycled pavers to give it a truly unique look. Additionally, you can utilize plant moss as well as sedum in order to fill in the gaps, providing a great amount of contrast. The advantage of creeping sedum is that they sprout little yellow flowers and do not need a lot of water or maintenance, thriving on the available sunshine without wilting. Another candidate is herb lemon thyme which is hailed for its aroma and which is equally low maintenance.


You can utilize uncommon sigma planters or trough planter. You will get bonus points if you spend a weekend on them coloring them up to match the mosaic and the gravel, or in contrasting colors that add pep and jazz. Terracotta pots lend themselves well to coloring, provided that you soak them in water overnight so that they do not suck in a huge amount of paint through their porous surfaces.

Perennial plants

The advantage of perennials is that they last all the year and there is a huge variety to choose from. If you are on a budget, you should go for filling your garden with perennials which flower in all imaginable colors and are a riot to look at. Another option is to go for a two toned color scheme that is much more sober but stylish as well. 

Ornamental grass

If you go for grass, it will act as filler while also adding texture and feel to the landscape. They are actually quite budget-friendly but when planted right, they look like an expensive addition. There are many different varieties of grass available in plant stores and you can go for planting in clusters or as a lawn, interspersed with bunches of perennials for a truly awesome look.

These are just some of the basic things you can do to jazz up your front yard. Feel free to experiment and also look up landscaping magazines and the internet for inspiration.
