Cost-Efficient Landscaping Ideas

Do you want your landscape to look its best? Are you running on a tight budget? If so, we understand your struggle. Everyone should have the landscape of their dreams, which is why we’re here to help you with some of the most cost-efficient landscape ideas out there.

The truth is that you don’t have to sacrifice the look of your yard just because you have a tight budget. Below, we’ve provided you with our favourite ideas to create the landscape of your dreams on a budget.

Try Going Vertical

Vertical farming is a new agricultural concept that introduces full-scale farming to urban areas. Anyone who has a compact landscape will appreciate this as well because it allows you to save space in your backyard. All you need to turn your garden vertical is to get some upright shelving and to place your garden on a vertical shelf.

By using this approach in your landscape, you can save yourself hundreds, even thousands of dollars. If you have a lot of decorations in your yard, you should also consider placing these on vertical shelves to create a unique and inviting landscape.

Start with Your Paving

Redoing the paving in your yard is one of the best ways for you to create a beautiful landscape and save yourself some money.

There are a few different designs that you can use if you want to get the right paving for your yard. You can, for example, use misshaped and complementary tiles to highlight your space. Using these tiles is an excellent way for you to incorporate more colour into your backyard. If you have decorations in your backyard, it’s one of the best ways to complement these decorations without spending too much money.

You can use other paving methods to make your yard look its best. By creating paths around your yard, you can give your space a welcoming and inviting feel that everyone will enjoy. One of the best ways to do this is to add a stone path that leads up to a small pond, if your space allows for it.  All in all, you can use this design option to complement an aspect of your backyard that you love.

Change Your Lighting

You might not realise this, but the lighting in your backyard has a significant impact on the way your backyard looks and feels. You have to play with both shadow and light if you want to have a dynamic backyard.

Both shadow and light have benefits, but they’re beneficial for different parts of your backyard. If you have monotoned lighting in your backyard, meaning all of the lighting is the same, you’ll find that your backyard isn’t as pleasing as you want it to be.

A Fountain or Pond

Adding a fountain or a pond has a reputation for being very expensive. That said, most people can afford to include even a small fountain in their backyard. You don’t need to have too much space to include these, making fountains ideal for small outdoor spaces.

You can incorporate a fountain with other tips we’ve suggested. For example, you can have a path that leads up to your pond or you can add lighting that leads visitors to the fountain at night.


Everyone deserves a backyard that they can be proud of. That’s why having the right landscape is absolutely vital. We know how important it is for you to love your outdoor space. For more information on landscaping tips or to speak with one of our design experts, contact our team today.
