It’s easy to spend thousands cultivating an idyllic lawn and garden. But a little ingenuity and patience will go a long way to keeping some green in your wallet, as well as in your garden. Traditional thinking says you should expect to pay anywhere from 5% to 15% of your home’s value on landscaping. Even at the low end of that range, you’re looking at spending £8,000 if you live in the median-value UK home worth £175,000. That’s tough to stomach no matter how much you love the outdoors. Thankfully, you can do it right and still spend a fraction of that amount. Here’s how: First of all, realise that budget gardening can still be beautiful. Let’s say you’ve got less than £1,000 to spend. The first things you should focus on are improving your soil and adding trees, Gareth recommends. You can spend £300 on plants, but they’re not going to grow in clay or sand. Gareth advises amending your soil with compost and other ingredients to improve its quality. Buying soil, in comparison, can cost as much as £20 a bag plus delivery.
