Landscaping is becoming one of the fastest-growing industries in the United States, employing approximately 1,000,000 people and generating $88 billion of revenue. But many homeowners who want a good-looking yard don’t want to pay for a professional. Fortunately, there are a lot of DIY landscaping ideas homeowners can use to spruce up their yards on a budget. And those interested in DIY landscaping can order landscaping supplies from us with FREE delivery!
DIY Landscaping Idea #1: Flower Beds
One of the easiest things to do to make a yard look better is to create flower beds. They make the yard look nicely-maintained almost immediately.
Adding mulch in the flower beds gives the plants a strong environment to grow in, as well as fertilizing the soil, retaining soil moisture, regulating soil temperature, and preventing the growth of weeds.
This is even simpler if the flower beds are already installed, and simply need some tidying up. You can add mulch to the top of the flower bed periodically.
DIY Landscaping Idea #2: Decorative Paths
A homeowner can order decorative stones or gravel and use them to create pathways, sidewalks, and other pieces of visual interest. Walking paths can be used to emphasize the style of the garden or yard. A whimsical cottage-type garden will look best with a curvy, winding path, while a formal estate-type yard will benefit from straight lines and well-maintained bricks.
Creating new walking paths is easy with our FREE delivery of gravel. You’ll have the bulk of the materials you need sent right to your doorstep.
DIY Landscaping Idea #3: Paver Patio
A paver patio can add thousands to your home’s value and give you an outdoor space you’ll enjoy for decades to come. Whether you’re entertaining groups, cooking a meal or just relaxing outside, it’s easy to find the right pavers and designs for you.
Installation is a lot easier when you can get all the washed concrete sand you’ll need as a paver base shipped right to your door.
Whether you are installing a new patio, planting a beautiful flower garden, or simply placing some mulch at the roots of your favorite tree, landscaping can be a relaxing way to bring out the beauty of nature to your home and create new spaces your family will love.
