It doesn’t take a small fortune to create an attractive and eye-catching yard and homefront. All it really requires is a little bit of imagination and a willingness to put in a little work. IN fact, a little bit of effort will produce impressive results without breaking the bank.
More than likely, you’ve been neglecting your yard for awhile. As a result, your yard is probably showing the signs of neglect. Start cleaning up. CUt the grass, clear the clutter, and fix anything that’s broken or in disrepair. Simply cleaning up will make a huge improvement in the overall look of your yar. Plus, you’ll be able to see where you can make changes and improve its appearance. Cleaning up simply creates a blank palette for you to paint on.
Create a Design Plan
Even if you have a limited amount of money to spend enhancing your yard, you can still make a huge splash. You may have to work with an unusually shaped yard or deal with treated wood poles in your yard. You will simply have to work with the yard you were given. Keep in mind that it doesn’t take expensive touches or an excessive amount of landscaping to make a statement.
Use a Few Well-Placed Accents
Decide on the accents that you’d like to add to your yard. Would you like to install a low maintenance rock garden? Would a flowerbed be a better choice for you? These are all questions that you should ask when you consider what you’d like to do with your yard. Consider the amount of maintenance and work that an accent would require and act accordingly. If you want something low maintenance, choose something like a rock garden or pavers. Accents like these require little to no maintenance.
You don’t have to break the bank to bring back your yard’s sparkle. All it really requires is a little elbow grease and the ability to utilize a little bit of creative energy. It doesn’t require a lot of different accents either. One or two well-placed accents should be all you need to make an impact on the appearance of your yard.
