No home is complete without a beautiful garden. Designing a garden can be an arduous process, as it has to be able to withstand the seasonal changes, months of rain, and also require little cultivation efforts if the homeowners are busy. It’s commonly thought that a beautiful garden costs a lot of money; however, this is not always the case. There are plenty of affordable items that just about any home can use in the garden or an outdoor area to instantly improve its utility and aesthetics.
Read ahead to find out some of the things you can buy on a budget to improve your garden:
Create an Outdoor Dining Area
Even the tiniest of yards can be redesigned to include an outdoor dining area. You don’t have to spend a lot of money buying waxed and sealed mahogany furniture. There are a number of cheap plastic furniture options that can imitate more expensive material like wood. Rather than the looks of the furniture, what really matters is the setting. If the dining area is placed under a shady tree surrounded by beautiful flower patches and trees, then that’s all the beauty you need. When you have an outdoor dining area, you have a scenic place to have tea or host guests on balmy evenings.
Install a Barbeque Grill
Convert your boring garden into a fun party place with a barbeque grill. This is a must have for chilling out on summer days, or inviting guests over during the holiday seasons. There are plenty of options for buying affordable barbeque grills. You can find a grill for less than $300 that could last for years. Also, if you have a smaller yard, you can buy a smaller grill that would cost less. What really matters is that you have a grill – even a small one is better than none. A grill will go well with an outdoor dining area.
Get an Outdoor Pizza Oven
If you really want to up your game and convert your backyard into a true fine dining paradise, buy an outdoor pizza oven. Note that these ovens are not the big ones you usually find at authentic Italian restaurants. Rather, these small clay or metal pizza ovens are suitable for those who really like eating pizza, but know little about actually making one. A pizza oven would be a unique addition that very few can boast about.
Design a Fire Pit Seating Area
If your yard or garden is rather spacious, you can consider creating a fire pit seating area for colder nights. You will have to buy a fire pit first. These vary in cost, but a small portable one won’t cost more than $200. You can design a fixed fire pit around the same price range as well. Invest in a nice set of furniture for guests to cozily sit around the fire. An enclosed fire pit area would be ideal for rainy nights.
Fairy Lights and Birdbath Fountains
Don’t really have that much money on hand to decorate your garden? Then go with the affordable but time honored birdbaths and fairy lights’ combo. If you can’t afford to buy fancy outdoor light fixtures, drape fairy lights around tree trucks, bushes, or along pathways to wow everyone with a light show at night. You can add beauty to your garden with a birdbath, which will attract colorful birds on hot days.
