5 DIY Ideas To Landscape Your Yard On A Budget
You don’t have to be an expert to landscape your yard. Here are some simple landscaping ideas to DIY on a budget.
1. Make your plants look fancy
Simple things like planting flowers in pots or planters with decorative designs can transform your landscape. You can either buy cheap fancy pots or paint attractive designs on plain containers yourself.
Another way to make your plants look fancy is to trim evergreens and shrubs into attractive topiaries. Yew bush, boxwood and holly are excellent choices. You can create different shapes with them, including geometrics and animals.
2. Repurpose old household items
Repurposing household items for landscaping can make your yard look unique and exquisite. Items such as old bricks can be used to create a pathway. You can even turn old bathtubs into a garden pool and use old furniture to plant an elevated garden.
3. Plant a vertical garden
Vertical gardening is an excellent DIY landscaping idea if you have a small or no yard. Plant climbers, such as Clematis by a wall for an attractive plant wall landscape. Or grow plants in a basket and hang them on a trellis in your ward.
Also, you can hang flower boxes on your front window sills to beautify your house. You can repurpose an old desk drawer or construct the flower box from scratch. You’ll need a few pieces of wood, nails and a hammer.
4. Create attractive hedges
Use concrete, pebbles and stones to create borders between sections of your garden. You can use them on the sides of your pathways or around your plant beds. Plants can also serve as attractive hedges. For instance, planting flowers around your mailbox.
5. Landscape with light
You can achieve beautiful landscape lighting on a budget with old Christmas lights. Wrap the strings around a tree or along your patio to light up your outdoors. Lighting candles in old glass jars can also serve as charming lanterns to light up your pathway.
