Landscaping Budget Tips

Backyard Makeover on a Budget

Looking to upgrade your backyard landscaping without breaking the bank? Below are a few budget-friendly ideas ranging from hardscaping to softscaping, to complete your project without having to take out a second mortgage.

Going Vertical

If you’re looking for simple yet effective backyard ideas to spruce up a small exterior space, vertical gardens are the best way to go about it.

Vertical gardening is using some of the vertical space in your yard to grow trees and plants. So if you are looking for small backyard landscaping ideas, vertical gardens are an excellent place to start. Not only can they make the most out of limited space, but they can also be inexpensive, especially if you use recycled materials such as old plastic bottles to make them.

DIY Vertical Garden Ideas

  • Wash out old paint cans, fill with soil and hang them up to create a vertical herb garden.
  • Use a wooden ladder, terracotta pots, and some wire for a rustic front porch vertical garden.
  • Waterproof an unused shoe organizer for a vertical garden that’s easy to move.
  • Repurpose a picture frame to create a vertical garden for succulents.

Adding a Splash of Color

Sometimes all it takes is just a splash of color to make a landscape stand out. This can be as simple as painting planters or giving wood and metal chairs a new coat of paint. Why not reuse leftover paint instead of buying new to save even more money? You can add a splash of color also when it comes to flowers or foliage, positioning them on a deck, at an entryway, or in a planting bed.
