It doesn’t take a lot to make a big difference

If you have a limited budget there are still many ways to create a great looking landscape.  If you have an existing landscape you can define your borders to start with.  Defining your borders simply means cleaning up your garden bed edges.  Overgrown garden beds are not attractive.  They will look much better if you add a clearly defined border.  Garden beds edging
can be a simple spade edge, mowing pavers, Vinyl edging, concrete curbing or raised stack stone retaining walls
Make sure to define you borders with attractive flowing curves or proper straight lines.  You can also stay within your budget by simply thinning out your tree and shrub plantings.  If you have overgrown plantings thinning them out can make all the difference to the look of your landscape.  Adding a fresh topping to your garden beds like cedar mulch, black mulch or decorative stone and make a huge difference in curb appeal and the costs are minimal.

Priorities for your landscaping and your budget.

It is important to set priorities for your landscaping and for your budget. You should focus on the landscaping portion of your landscaping first, like decks, fences, patios and walkways. These landscaping components are the first that should be installed as they are the most important and they also require major excavation and disturbance of the land on your property. Trees, shrubs, mulch, privacy screens and other softer landscaping components can be installed at another time without causing any major disturbances to the rest of your landscaping. So limiting the components you can install will help with the budgeting for your landscaping but it will also allow you to sit back and enjoy your landscaping for a season or two or more. Often, after enjoying your landscaping for a period of time, you will have a better idea of what landscaping components you want to add for both practical reasons and aesthetics. IF you are interested in a modern landscaping Calgary project you can choose to install more decorative stone or hardscaping and less greenery or high maintenance lawn or shrubs.
