Some amazing affordable landscaping to try
- Stay away from annuals!
If you’re looking for inexpensive plants/flowers that add beauty to your otherwise boring landscape, try to stay away from annuals. These types of plants, like petunias, have to be replaced year after year, which becomes pretty costly. Stick to perennials like coneflowers and bellflowers- these babies will keep on coming back season after season. This way, you don’t have to worry about lawn maintenance like planting and replanting. This can definitely save you a couple hundred bucks on landscaping costs.
- Stonework can be inexpensive, too!
A simple stone walkway can add the perfect touch you’ve been looking for. Stonework can often become a little complicated so that’s why it’s best to let us handle it for you. Putting in large pavers in your lawn can also cut down on lawn maintenance costs because they’ll cover up those trouble spots you would otherwise need to spend money keeping up.
- Think about your design
Yep, just the design itself can save you money on landscaping. Often times, people don’t take the time to plan out a landscaping design that works with their space, which leads to just buying stuff that either doesn’t work together or overcrowds. It’s also important to plan your design around the future. Research maintenance costs. Are you going to have to replace this or that in the next couple of years? Consider all the possibilities before you execute, you could be saving yourself some trouble and some cash.
