Categories: Landscape Ideas | November 8, 2018

Simple landscaping ideas on a budget can make a great addition to any front yard landscaping or backyard landscaping project. At Vandenberg’s Landscape Design, we know that working on a budget does not have to mean sacrificing on beauty. That is why all of our landscaping services are designed to fit your exact needs and budget.

Simple Landscaping Ideas for Working on a Budget

Some simple landscaping ideas for working on a budget that you might want to consider for your landscaping project include:

1. Refurbishing Old Household Items

One simple inexpensive landscaping idea that can work for any outdoor space is refurbishing old household items, such as furniture or appliances, and turning them into garden planters. Consider choosing old items that are sturdy, spacious, and high enough to help prevent certain pests from eating your plants.

2. Adding Garden Borders

Adding borders to any front yard landscaping and backyard landscaping can help create polished, prominent lines that separate garden beds, the lawn, and other plants. Inexpensive garden borders can be created from almost any material, including plastic barriers, border boxes, planting rocks, or any type of garden filler, such as wood shavings or gravel. Since the possibilities for creating simple borders are endless, you can create an interesting space without breaking the bank.

3. Utilizing Crushed Stone

One of the easiest and cheapest landscaping ideas you can incorporate into your landscape design is adding crushed stone or garden rocks. Instead of paying to have lawn turf or other plants included in your landscape design, consider filling empty spaces in your yard with different types of crushed stone. With a wide range of garden fillers to choose from, you can easily find the right colour and texture for your specific setting.

4. Stringing Lights Up

A great way to add class to any landscape design is to string up lights. Since you can do a lot with outdoor lights these days and most outdoor lights are now LEDs, you can easily add an extra level of ambiance to your space without having a large impact on your monthly electric bill. Outdoor lights can also be a great way to create a festive atmosphere, no matter the time of year or approaching season.
