Landscaping On A Budget

This goes a bit beyond "how to landscape on a budget"

Extreme landscaping on a budget? Actually, I'm kind of kidding about this porch patio.

As we watched the cost of materials and labor push our prices higher, we had an inside joke about our lowest priced design packages consisting of one decorative rock and a small pine tree like this one. A little bit of grass seed and that was the budget plan. Of course, an automatic sprinkler system to water the lawn is extra.

Being budget minded with your landscape is a matter of creating a landscape plan, planning, and paying attention to detail. It doesn't mean you have to settle for a cheap looking yard created with cheap materials. Keep in mind, there is a difference between cheap and inexpensive.

For the most part, other than lawn area, the only existing usable area in this yard is a porch or patio area. To help keep this area within your spending limit, see budget patio design. It will also give you some direction for the rest of your yard.
