4 Budget Friendly Landscaping Project Ideas

Is your backyard in need of a ideasmakeover? Whether you have a small yard or plenty of acreage, there are numerous opportunities to make good use of your outdoor space. Obtaining a beautiful landscape for your home doesn’t have to be expensive either. Here are four ideas to boost the curb appeal of your home without breaking the bank.

Flower Bed Edging

What You’ll Need:
  • Garden Hose or Powdered Chalk
  • Metal Edging
  • Spade
  • Shovel
  • Rubber Mallet
  • Hacksaw
For a crisp, defined edge to your garden bed, consider using metal edging to elevate the look and feel of your garden. Not only does it provide a clean separation between various materials in your yard, it doesn’t rot, crack or chip. Check out Grand Material’s outdoor living page – we stock various colors and sizes of metal edging.

Paver Tree Surround

What You’ll Need:
  • Rope or String
  • Bedding Sand
  • Spade
  • Trowel
  • Mulch/Topsoil
  • Brick Pavers
A tree surround is an excellent way to improve the look and feel of your yard, giving a manicured look to your landscape. Edging circles not only look clean, but keep gravel and grass away from the trunk of the tree. Add a second or third row to create a small wall. Fill with soil or mulch and plant flowers or other vegetation for a splash of color.

Stained Concrete

What You’ll Need:
  • Tarp
  • Paint Pad
  • Paint Pan
  • Paintbrush
  • Broom & Hose
  • Water-based Concrete Stain
  • Bucket of Water
Whether you are looking to install a brand new concrete patio or even if you already have one, it doesn’t have to be bland and gray. You can give your concrete a fresh new look with a masonry stain. Create a variety of patterns, colors and looks for your patio without burning a hole in your wallet.

Add a Trellis

Trellises are a relatively inexpensive item to add to your garden or yard and they can act as the perfect focal point for your landscape. Whether you want to provide a marker for a garden path, mark a sitting area or simply give a space for a flowering vine plant to grow, trellises are the perfect structure. We keep a wide selection of trellises in stock at our landscaping supply stores in Surprise, Scottsdale, Chandler, and Mesa. Find everything you need to vamp up the look of your landscape at an affordable price. Come visit Grand Materials & Supply today!
