It’s a symbol of hard work and dedication.
One of the most important features in any home is outdoor spaces. But you don’t need a fully fledged garden oasis to create a beautiful space.
time, grow your own fresh produce and entertain friends in the one space. And the best bit, it doesn’t have to cost a fortune. There are plenty of little DIY actions that you can do to landscape your outdoor space on a budget.
Go VerticalIf you love to garden, but find your new outdoor area is limited in space, it’s time to consider a vertical garden.
Simply put, vertical gardening is using a space such as a fence or wall to grow plants, herbs, succulents and anything in between. Not only do they use very little space, they also look fantastic and can turn dull, lifeless spaces into a main attraction.
Try using a wooden ladder, terracotta pots or some wire for a front porch vertical garden. You can also utilise old paint cans for a mini herb garden or a wooden fence to hang pot hangers and wooden screws.
Add a pop of colour
Sometimes, all you need is a little colour to brighten your day. The same goes for your backyard.
Try painting your planter boxes in a bright colours, or perhaps some wooden outdoor furniture.
If you’re looking to spruce up your space with plants, try grabbing a few inexpensive terracotta pots from your local hardware store and plant some colourful flowers and foliage.
It’s the littlest things that make the biggest difference!
Start A Produce Corner
Add some practicality or functionality to your outdoor space.
Some of the most beautiful additions to home gardens are vegetables, herbs and fruit trees. Not only do they look fabulous, they’re also incredibly economical and resourceful.
Try starting a mini herb garden using a small planter box or terracotta pots. If fruit trees sound too complicated, opt for a low-maintenance lemon or lime tree in a big, beautiful pot.
Instead of a last minute dash to the shops when you’ve forgotten a certain herb, all you’ll need to do is wander into your backyard. Sounds pretty good to us!
Plant Some Trees
Planting trees is one of the easiest and least expensive ways to decorate your outdoor spaces. All you need are digging tools, some mulch and a tree of your choice.
Trees play an important role in making outdoor spaces more comfortable, particularly on those warmer days. And for those grey, dark winter days, there are plenty of colourful trees that thrive in the cooler climate, such as Japanese Maples.
Let There Be Light
Great lighting doesn’t necessarily come down to dollars and cents. In fact, often, cheaper outdoor festoon lights are a staple of a backyard space, with a soft, ambient glow perfect for those balmy summer nights. Head into your local Bunnings Warehouse or Mitre 10, where you’ll find twinkle lights and clear globe lights by the dozen! Be sure the globes are LED or even better, solar, so you’ll also be saving money on that all important power bill.
Wrap your lights around outdoor pillars, your trees or flower beds to add some brightness to your backyard.
