DIY LANDSCAPING ON A BUDGET
Want to redo your yard but don’t know where to begin? Don’t start your DIY landscape design without these simple front yard landscaping ideas on a budget!
Upon moving into our house, I knew that we would have to take serious steps to add curb appeal to our new home. Our front and backyard were in such a bad state that I think they are the only reason we got the house for a good price in a really competitive market. No one wanted to deal with the yard but me!
The landscaping was messy, overgrown, impractical and not our style. So, first I got a few bids from local landscapers. Unfortunately, they were either really expensive or didn’t seem very knowledgeable.
For example, any Texas landscaper worth his salt knows that Knockout Roses need a lot of sun. When I looked at one landscape design with them in a super shady spot of the yard, I realized maybe I should take this landscape design into my own hands! It was then I implemented my own budget-friendly landscaping plan.
