In need of a landscaping change? Well-planned designs can dramatically change the feel of your Los Angeles area yard. Change comes with a cost – but not all improvements have to break the bank! Here are ideas for landscaping designs on a budget for your Studio City yard!
Landscaping Designs on a Budget
Turning the Old to New
Repurposing old elements in your yard can be a great money saver. Have old tires or work boots lying around? Turn them into flower pots and planters! Use old bricks, stones, and pavers to line new garden beds. A little spray paint and creativity can turn objects sitting around the property into modern, budget-friendly landscape updates!
Not a lot of outdoor space? Consider a vertical garden. It is an affordable way to add green to your yard or balcony. Use recycled materials such as old plastic bottles, upcycled paint cans, or terracotta pots to hold your blooms. For the vertical structure, use an old ladder, repurposed frames, fences, or old shoe organizers.
A pop of color can provide a new face to any space. Plant some annual flowers such as impatiens – low-maintenance blooms found in various bright colors. Refreshing paint on your planters, chairs, or other colorful elements can make them feel like new. Adding a coat of deck or fence stain can give your yard an updated look.
A firepit provides a landscaping focal point and a gathering place for friends and family. You don’t need a contractor to do it – it’s easy to build yourself in hours. A firepit is a great way to repurpose extra rocks, retaining wall blocks, or stones. This project shouldn’t cost more than $100 and can help you create memories that last a lifetime!
Adding lighting can dramatically change the feel of your outdoor space. Weather-resistant outdoor string lighting is affordable, starting at $6. Running lights from your pergola to a tree or wrapping strands around tree trunks or pillars can be a great way to add ambiance to your yard at night, creating a great evening entertainment space!
