How To Build A Luxury Backyard On A Budget
Building a lovely backyard does not have to zap your savings. You can enjoy a luxurious backyard without spending through the nose if you are willing to be creative and spend some time performing research. Especially when you are wanting to sell your home. We have done the bulk of the work for you. Without further adieu, let’s take a look at the best way to build a luxurious backyard on a budget.
Add a Fire Pit
A backyard fire pit was once considered an egregiously expensive backyard luxury yet this feature is now quite affordable and somewhat commonplace. All sorts of unique fire pit styles are available to homeowners at surprisingly low price points. Comprised of long-lasting materials such as aluminum and steel, modern day fire pits can be installed in square or round form. A lovely fire pit in your backyard will serve as a comfortable place to enjoy the fresh air with family and friends as you toast s’mores and share stories.
Install Vertical Gardening
Most people enjoy gardening yet lack the time, space and money to add a garden to their backyard. The solution is vertical gardening. This approach makes use of your backyard’s vertical space to grow flowers, small plants and other greenery. The best part is a vertical garden is affordable and does not require older homeowners to bend at the knees to water, weed, etc. If money is your top concern, consider using old plastic bottles as plant and flower holders. This approach saves money as well as the planet.
Put Those Old Tires to use in Your Backyard
There is no reason to let those old tires collect dust in your basement when you can use them as a creative addition to your backyard. Consider covering your old tires with rope or pillow cases designed for outdoor use. The result will be a highly unique and uber-durable ottoman for the patio that makes your backyard feel that more luxurious. Old tires can also be used as hanging planters. Fill up the old tire halfway with soil, attach it to your fence and plant some seeds. Use your imagination, perform some research on how to use old tires for a luxurious backyard and you will end up with quite the unique space that inspires envy amongst neighbors and other visitors.
Add Affordable Lighting to Your Backyard
There is a common misconception that the addition of lighting to a backyard will prove unnecessarily expensive. You can add economical lighting to your property without busting your budget if you are willing to think outside of the box. Consider installing string-style Christmas lights along your backyard deck or patio and you will have a cozy atmosphere to enjoy with family and guests.
Holiday lighting is especially cheap in February and March when stores are looking to unload their lights at reduced prices. Solar path lights are another green and affordable option to illuminate your backyard’s walkways, flowerbeds and other features. If you opt for the non-solar variety, be sure to turn them off when you head in for the night so they do not pose a fire hazard to your property.
