If you're a homeowner, then you've probably spent time and money sprucing up your outdoor space. But landscaping without a big budget can be challenging.
While we all might wish we had a "green thumb" not everyone does. And even though we would love to do a total makeover like they do on all those envy-producing home improvement reality shows, we almost certainly don't have a budget for it.
So, what do you do?
Landscape Transformations Without Breaking the Bank
If you look at your backyard and think to yourself, "Landscaping that mess would just be putting lipstick on a pig." then we suggest you think of it as a "Tasteful and modest application of makeup."
Even the most neglected residential outdoor space can be beautified with the right touches and additions. And it doesn't have to cost much, if anything at all.
For example, creating some simple planter strips to border your yard can be accomplished with an series of inexpensive landscape border material, or leftover lumber, and an application of mulch or bark. Adding a few plants, rocks, and even repurposed old watering cans or broken gardening equipment as decorative flourishes can create a charming "frame" for your yard.
Got an ugly fence?
Spruce it up with old window frames and other discarded items to use as hanging decór. Add some hanging flower boxes here and there to add splashes of color and greenery. Now your old, gray fence has been morphed into a rustic stretch of "yard art."
And don't forget the impact and durability of hardscape.
According to one expert,
"One of the interesting and creative aspects of landscape design is the incorporation of hardscapes. In other words, the hard landscape materials in the structures that are often included in a landscape.
What do these look like? They can be elements as simple and common as any paved areas or driveways, as well as retaining walls, walkways, and steps.
Essentially, your hardscapes are any landscaping made with hard, durable materials such as wood, stone, and concrete."
With all these thoughts going, let's take a look at a handy guide we've created to stir your ideas and motivation for landscaping with a big budget:
Checking the Forecast and Your Budget
Of course, we understand that what you can do with your outdoor space is dictated by your weather as much as it is by your budget. However, many regions of the country have enough dry, sunny days in late winter and early spring to allow for some smaller projects.
And you don't have to do everything at once!
Landscaping and transforming your yards and other outdoor areas can be done in phases or for certain areas at certain times.
The key is planning. And budgeting.
What Do You Do with All the Yard Waste and Junk Material?
It is true that many landscaping efforts will produce large amounts of dirt, debris, and other junk that will have to be gotten rid of.
And, depending on the weather and the time of year, you won't want to do that yourself.
As we pointed out earlier, for most folks living in the United States, seasonal weather is the number one factor for determining when the best time is for your landscaping and subsequent yard cleanup tasks.
If you live in the Southwest states or on the West Coast, for example, most yard improvement projects can be done almost any time of year.
If, however, you live in states like North Dakota, Montana or somewhere in New England, the winter months can make these projects difficult if not impossible. And, even if you take advantage of the clear days and create something wonderful out of your yard, you still have to deal with the junk removal.
Fortunately, by hiring a professional junk hauling firm like Junk King to do the job for you, weather concerns can be minimized. By having our team pick up and take away your yard waste for you, you don’t have to be in the rain or brave the cold.
