How to Redesign Your Backyard

Landscaping your yard comes with many rewards. You get to create something lovely and you can save money by doing it yourself. You have the pride of having accomplished something amazing. If you have a big job to do though, one thing that can save you lots of time and money is by buying certain materials in bulk.

For instance, if you are planning to tackle installing some new flower beds out front, planting some hedges and landscaping around your deck out back, then there are a number of products you will use over and over. These include mulch, top soil, potting soil, fertilizer, sand, gravel, and plants just to name a few.

Start by making a rough diagram of your new design for the area. Next, write down the materials you’ll need. Try to be specific. This can save you some time at the landscape supply company. Be sure to save your receipts so that you can return any unused or unwanted items.

If you are the type of person who spends lots of time outdoors doing yard work, you will eventually use any extra fertilizer or potting soil. Be sure to have an area laid out for storage. That way, as soon as you return home, you can start unloading your pickup truck and get supplies better organized.

Wicker furniture is a great idea for the backyard. It’s lightweight so you can move your wicker furniture around as needed. Change out the cushions after a few years for a whole new ambiance.
