When you think of landscaping your yard, you likely turn right to installing new trees and shrubs, or redoing it with features such as rocks and mulch. While this is certainly a large part of what landscaping entails, the fact is, you can make a big impact on your yard without spending an incredible amount of money at once. Landscaping on a budget can be a challenge, but it can be done!

Getting a beautiful yard on a budget is easier than you think. Read on for tips!

Plant Perennials

Annuals are definitely very pretty and tempting when you’re at the home improvement center. However, once their season is over, they die and never come back. Investing in perennials is a fantastic way to keep lots of color in your yard, but every year, they come back lusher and bigger than the year before and likely with many more blooms. You will get the best bang for your buck this way, and will be able to enjoy your flowers for years to come.

Hire A Pruning Expert

You might think the shrubs in front of your house are a lost cause, and worry that you’ll have to pay somebody to remove them and plant new ones. This might not be the case at all! When you hire a pruning expert, you can revitalize the look of your shrubs. They will have a shape that’s far more manageable, and will begin to grow in the right directions. When you have them maintained once or twice a year, you should be able to enjoy them (in a far less wild state!) for many more years.

Install Mulch

Many of us have a section of our yard that’s filled with plants and weeds that we don’t have time to tend to, or money to buy better plants. One solution to this is to tear out that part of the yard, put down a layer of landscaping fabric, and put on a layer of mulch. Mulch is wonderful because it’s pest-resistant, doesn’t allow weeds to grow, and provides a very attractive plot on your yard. You can put your existing planters in this space, or invest in a few perennials to put there.

Plant the Right Flowers

One of the biggest gardening problems homeowners have is plants that don’t thrive. They end up replacing them year after year, or even throughout the growing season, which turns their garden into a money pit. Work with a landscaper who can go over the types of plants that will work best in the space, and that won’t die because they’re not getting enough sun or water. They can educate you on the best way to care for the plant, and make sure you understand what you need to know to help the plants thrive.
