Transforming the Landscape of Your Backyard
It’s no secret that the best parts of summer are barbecues, swimming pools, and patio drinks. But there’s another thing we love about this season: how easy it is to transform your backyard with a few inexpensive materials. You don’t need a big budget or an expensive landscape company to create your dream space; all you need is some imagination, a little bit of greenery, and maybe a few extra hours on weekends. And if you’re looking for ideas for affordable landscaping options that won’t break the bank, here are 3 of our favorites:
Lay flat rocks in an interesting design.
Rock walls and rock gardens can be beautiful additions to any backyard, and they’re also some of the most affordable ways to transform your yard into a garden oasis. You don’t have to be an expert stonemason to create a rock wall either. All it takes are some rocks, some mortar, and a little patience. You can use flat, rounded, or natural stones of various shapes, sizes, and colors for this project — just make sure they’re all level with each other (so no gaps).
Work with what you have.
If you don’t have a large backyard, you can still make the most of your outdoor space. You can try adding an outdoor kitchen with a grill and some seating. There are lots of portable grills that are easy to set up, but if you want something more permanent, consider building a custom deck or patio for your grill.
Install concrete slabs and patio pavers.
Concrete slabs are the easiest to install, durable, fireproof, and can be decorated with paint or tiles. They can also be used for patios and pathways. Concrete is often thought of as an industrial material but it works really well in the backyard due to its durability. If you’re looking for a natural look that will last then concrete might be your best bet!
