Cheap Outdoor Space Fixes That Look Expensive

You don't need to spend all of your green to enhance curb appeal. Beautiful landscaping can look expensive, but a colorful garden can also be budget-friendly.

Fire up an old-fashioned watering can, mulch, hang some string lights, and you can create a charming and inviting backyard for little or no cost. If you're crafty and good with tools, you'll go through cheap DIY projects.

These 7 inexpensive ideas for your outdoor space will inspire you. So, play around with these cost-effective-looking solutions.

Add a small element of water

With a minimum of materials and effort, you can build a beautiful pond in just a few days. A backyard garden pond with running water, floating plants, and fast-moving fish can make a bland space impressive.

Keeping it attractive and uncomplicated takes work, but with a little more care in the planning and construction phases, you can create a near-maintenance-free tank.

Roll on a rock

The rocks are attractive and provide a natural place to add herbs, flowers, and other garden plants. You'll find huge piles of rocks to choose from anywhere that sells garden supplies.

The prices vary according to the size, less for the bread baskets and more for the giant stones that you will have to deliver and place.

Whichever size you choose, set the stones a little on the ground. They should look like they've fallen off a retreating glacier, not like they just fell off the back of a truck.

Set a fire pit in the yard

Nothing says cozy and comfortable like flames crackling in a backyard fire pit. Imagine getting together with friends and family over wine, grilling hot dogs, and making marshmallows around your own fire pit on cold summer nights.

Build a fire pit for not much more than the cost of a flimsy, store-bought fire ring. This idea can also be great for throwing awesome bonfire parties in your own backyard, check out this article to learn more about it.

Use cheap planters, but use them

The garden cord is a useful tool for any gardener, especially as an inexpensive and cheerful addition to any flower pot. With a little hot glue and a little imagination, you can create just about any look you want.

Wrap an entire plastic vase with string to give it an industrial look, or just cover one part to add a modern touch to your decorative vases.

The rope paints easily too, so consider adding a band of color to the center section of the rope with spray paint for an extra pop of color, or group vases in various colors to accentuate your other outdoor décor.

Reuse the initial seed containers

Reuse a plastic shell-shaped container on the salad bar as a mini-greenhouse to plant seeds in spring. After washing the bowl, poke a few holes in the top. Fill the bottom with potting soil and plant your seeds.

Close the lid and place the container in a sunny place. It acts as a mini-greenhouse, allowing the sun to reach the plants, maintaining humidity.

Save on potting mix

Brand name potting mixes can cost a few dollars when filling large containers. Use a cheaper soil mix (and save weight so you can move containers more easily) by covering the bottom of large containers with packing peanuts before filling them with the soil mix.

Place the peanuts from the box in a sealed plastic bag or cover them with a garden cloth to prevent them from mixing with the soil (a hassle if you throw the pot away).

Put in a small yard

A simple brick or tile patio furnished with an outdoor dining set is the perfect place to watch the kids play in the backyard and entertain guests.

In practice, patios help drain water from the house and are a great solution for areas that can't support lawns.
