Brisbane Soils - Landscaping Ideas

Landscaping is a great way to add value to your home, make it look more appealing, and add an element of style to your garden. However, hiring a professional landscaper to undertake the work can be expensive. If you don’t have the money to pay for a professional, there are a few things that you can do yourself.

Here are our top five landscaping ideas on a budget!

1. Plant turf in your garden
Turf is one of the most cost-effective ways to landscape a yard. It’s also straightforward to install and maintain. You can even do it yourself if you don’t mind a little hard work or you can hire someone else to do it for you like the team at Brisbane Turf Supplies.
Aside from the beauty new turf can bring to a garden, it is also suitable for people who are unable to care for a large garden space bursting with annual or perennial plants. Some varieties of turf require very little water, like Nara Native Zoysia whilst others are suitable for yards that have quite a bit of shade. The choice really is yours!

2. Use Mulch
One of our favorite landscaping ideas in Mulch! Mulch is an easy, cost-effective way to improve the look of your garden. It is made of organic materials such as chip bark, Tea Tree or Hoop Pine. Mulch helps keep weeds from growing and keeps the moisture in the ground. This makes it easier for you to care for your plants because it cuts down on weeding and watering time.
You can also use a different decorative colour mulch to make your garden colourful and add a little more curb appeal to your front yard. You can find decorative mulch at our Brisbane Soils site in Sheldon.

3. Create Paths with Pebbles and Gravel
Pathways are usually expensive to manage because they need to withstand all types of weather conditions over time while still looking good enough. But you can still create pathways on a budget using pebbles. Pebbles are easy to install, and they’re perfect for walkways, patios, and gardens. They’re durable, more colourful than plain gravel, and easy to maintain.
Create a path with pebbles and gravel instead of grass walkways to provide a little interest to your garden scape. For something a little extra special, plant some flowers along each side of your gravel path for a splash of seasonal colour!

4. Use Garden Compost
The best way to save money on your landscaping budget is to start with compost. Compost is a natural fertiliser that you can use to help nourish the soil and make it more fertile. The nutrients in compost are great for plants, and will also help with the drainage of the soil. If you want to save money, you should certainly consider using garden compost for your landscaping needs.

5. Use garden and landscaping soil to plant your flowers
Gardening soil should have a good blend of clay, sand, silt, organic matter, and be well-drained. You can buy garden and landscaping soil from a local landscaping supplier like Brisbane Soils. Our organic garden soil has just the right amount of nutrients that are enriched with organics. Perfect to keep your plants healthy and happy.
