Tips to Yard Improvement on Tight Budget

1. Cut, Edge and Irrigate Your Lawn

This is the most basic step, but, it is often overlooked. It doesn’t cost much to cut and edge your lawn. If you have a decent mower all you need is some gas and oil and you are on your way.

Make sure you cut to the height that you want. Going too low can give your lawn a scaleped, burnt look. Too long and the grass looks umkempt. Finding that sweet spot might take some practice, but in terms of looks, it is well worth the effort.

Edging is also cheap. You can do it with a weed eater if you practice a bit. Or, you can go old school and get a nice, sharp knife and cut away the extras along your driveway, cement or stone walking paths, near flowerbeds and the mailbox and anywhere else you want to set a tight edge.

Watering can be tricky, but, it is best to water too little at first rather than soak your yard. Different types of grass need different amounts of water. Consult a landscaping pro for help.

2. Mulch

Mulch can run from extremely expensive to free. This will depend on what kind of look you want to go with.

On the more expenive end of things you have rock, stone, redwood and other dyed tree mulches. These can and a vibrance and color to your yard and make it really stand out. Plus, it will give your flower beds or trees a unique look.

If you are on a budget you can gather pine needles, tree bark or stones and make your own mulch. These can be dyed, painted or left natural, dependin on the look you want.

3. Clean Up Debris

Simply clearing out sticks, branches, leaves and pine cones can make your yard look need and much more polished. Again, this is free.
