LANDSCAPING IDEAS ON A BUDGET
Landscaping your front or back yard is one of the best ways to add curb appeal and increase value of your home while creating a beautiful outdoor space for you to enjoy. Most people think that landscaping is expensive but there are many budget-friendly landscaping ideas to save money. Whether you decide to hire an Edmonton landscaping company or choose to do it yourself, here are 6 cheap landscaping ideas that will keep costs for landscaping supplies low while still making an impact:
1) GOT MULCH?
Give your yard a makeover by simply adding mulch! Your garden will immediately look more polished and well manicured when garden beds have clean edges and weeds or irregularities in the soil are covered. Also, mulch is not just for aesthetic purposes, as it can help protect and insulate roots while creating a barrier to weeds. Rockland supplies mulch in a variety of colors to match the tones in your yard.
2) EASY EDGING FOR THE WIN!
Take it up a notch by adding stone edging to your garden beds. There are many options for edging such as interconnected, easy assembly edging stones to concrete hardscape products like pavers and boundaries. Choose the best landscaping supplies for your edging project by asking our knowledgeable staff at Rockland.
3) PLANT PERENNIALS.
Each and every year, a household will spend hundreds of dollars on plants! Instead of buying annuals for planters, get your return on investment with perennials. Plan low maintenance greenery or shrubs, ornamental grass, creeping vines and/or ground covers to create an opulent, lush garden. To save more money on landscaping, start plants from seeds, get plant clippings from friends, and divide plants when possible.
4) PAIR HIGH AND LOW.
You can use recycled materials to create an upscale look by simply pairing high and low. For example, you may be able to find cheap (or sometimes free) old cement slabs that can be used to create a path or patio in the backyard by pairing them with a gravel base. Or use old wood planks or fence boards to create a path by pairing with decorative rock or mulch. There are many ways to save money on Edmonton landscaping supplies!
5) NEXT LEVEL.
Create levels in your existing flower beds to add more interest without breaking the bank. Add an extra mound or berm of top soil to your garden bed and selectively place larger rocks that are rustic and rugged or smooth and modern to match your overall style. Once rocks are in place, plant perennials, ground cover and other plants above and below the rocks for multiple levels of abundant blooms and greenery.
6) BE BOLD.
Instead of investing money into multiple areas of the garden, choose one focal point in your yard to make a statement with a boulder. One large, boulder in the middle of a garden bed with mulch will be eye catching and is easy to do thanks to Rockland’s boulder delivery service in the Edmonton area. We also do sandblasting so you can add your house/business number or name for a customized design!
