Whether you have a big garden or small one, or whether you live in a place with glorious year-round sunshine or are unlucky enough to live somewhere with a cold and icy climate that doesn’t really make having a garden seem like the best idea, the fact is that having a garden still can and should be something you’re able to enjoy and not just use as a place to keep a shed full of all the junk you don’t want to keep in the house.
Many people are under the impression that having a garden and keeping it looking good is something that’s going to cost a lot of money, but really the opposite is true, and of course you can spend a lot of money if you wish – just like anything else, really, but truly it doesn’t have to cost you a lot, so if you’re on a budget when it comes to your garden, but you still want to keep it looking good so that you can actually enjoy it, then in this post we’re going to share with you how to brighten up your garden on a budget.
Of course, you could actually go really simple and just make sure you’re mowing the lawn regularly if that’s all you want to do because that alone will already make a huge difference in how the garden looks, but we will share with you a bit more than that.
Plant vegetables or herbs
Planting and growing your own vegetables and herbs is not only economical, but it’s also far healthier than anything you’ll ever buy. It’s actually very fun to do, and it’s definitely one of the most satisfying feelings to eat something that you’ve grown yourself, so if you’d like to brighten up your garden through adding things like vegetable patches and herbs to it, then this is a great thing to try and it’s not even as difficult or time consuming as you might imagine. You’ll find plenty of tutorials and guidance online to help you get started with this if it’s something you’ve never done before.
Add some bright furniture
Garden furniture is something you can easily pick up in most places, and whilst it definitely varies in price, you can easily find great and gorgeous pieces to brighten your garden up that are very affordable, so take a look around both online and offline to get an idea for the kind of furniture you’d like to add to your garden to give the place a new look.
Put out some bird food
Brids, as we know have to eat, too, and there’s something quite lovely about being able to feed them – especially in times of year when their food supplies may be more scarce. You can buy things like bird feeders and buy bird food for them and enjoy watching them come by each day for their food.
Add some lighting
Garden lighting is something that’s actually a lot easier to install than most people think, and it really doesn’t even have to be expensive, but it can make such a big difference. Things like solar lights, for example are very affordable and you can find these online and offline, so if you really want to brighten the garden up and give it a cosy and welcoming look, then lighting is the way to go.
