Landscaping On A Budget

Congratulations, you’ve recently purchased a home, complete with an outdoor area and a large backyard. The only down side of the home is that it needs a serious renovating job outside. From the cracked pavement to the excessive weeds, there are ways to maintain an outdoor area on a budget.
The first thing to do is to decide on a reasonable amount of money that you’re able to afford without going into debt. This amount will be used to fund the changes for the exterior of your property. The next step is to decide on what areas of the garden require the most assistance, if you’re unhappy with the lack of colour, we suggest you purchase some bright and vibrant flowers to spruce up the area. While there are a number of options available at your local hardware store or greenery, it’s important to buy the right type for your lifestyle and climate. Due to Brisbane’s continuous hot weather, we recommend going for flowers that are able to withstand humidity and require full sun, such as Agapanthus, Gazania and Tagetes.
If pulling out weeds is not your cup of tea, then we have an affordable solution that requires barely any maintenance. Synthetic grass is a fantastic option and is favoured among those around Australia who are situated in locations that have water restrictions. No watering, mowing, or dangerous pesticides, artificial turf can be placed anywhere outside. The key is to do your research and find a reputable business that suppliers the most durable turf at the lowest prices.


Paving is able to completely transform the appearance of an area and add some understated elegance. Visiting your local hardware store and purchasing the bricks will allow you to save some money and complete the task yourself. If you require some guidance, ask for some assistance and you’ll be halfway there.

Ensuring that the trees around your property are secure is crucial, especially in areas that receive a large amount of wind. Keeping an eye out for those trees that may appear to be deteriorating and getting them assessed by a qualified arborist will provide peace of mind for you and your family.
Landscaping on a budget may require some extra effort, however the result will most certainly be rewarding in the long term.
