While some people allow big budgets for their landscape, others are looking for cost-effective ways to make their yard look great. Landscaping on a smaller budget is definitely possible but often needs more planning to determine how and where you want to spend the money. If your landscape budget is tight and you’re looking to get the most bang for your buck, we’ve got some great ideas!
Improve Existing Landscape
Rather than starting your landscape from scratch, take a good look at your yard and determine which spaces look the best, and which need some work. Start with the places that you would like to change, whether you see dead grass, weeds, or messy flowerbeds. Also, trimming shrubs and trees can easily change the overall feel of your landscape. Instead of taking on a full-yard landscaping project and adding new plants, start by making small adjustments to your existing lawn.
Choose Cost Effective Plants
Certain plants are easier to maintain than others, and a good way to stay under budget is to choose cost-effective plants and flowers. Plants such as a boxwood hedge, knockout roses, and perennials last a long time and are easy to maintain. The roses provide beautiful color to any landscape and can be planted in various areas on your lawn. While annuals need to be replaced with the seasons, perennials, hostas, and irises can be planted from clippings or pieces of the plant.
If you have a strict budget and don’t know where to begin, call in a professional such as Evergreen Gene’s!

Once we’ve visited your home, we’ll provide you with a detailed drawing that defines where new plants and trees will go, as well as any recommendations for removing existing plants and trees. As mentioned above, a good place to start is working on your existing landscape, and we also provide services such as trimming shrubs and installing new mulching. We’d love to work with you to bring your dream landscape to life, all while staying within budget!
