How to save money on Landscape Gardening services: 

Garden design can be expensive, but it doesn’t have to break the bank! Save money on your garden makeover with these handy tips: 

  • Get some of the work done yourself - If you’re willing to get your hands dirty and do some of the work yourself you could save money on landscaping services. Jobs like mowing the lawn and clearing rubbish aren’t too difficult, even if they are time-consuming.

  • Pick inexpensive materials - Opting for inexpensive materials can save you big money. Crushed stones or rocks are far cheaper than artificial grass installation, for example. Your landscaping professional will be able to advise on the best material for your budget and requirements. 

  • Choose your plants wisely - Plants make a real difference to the visual aesthetics of your garden, but certain types can be pricey and require regular maintenance, which can lead to hefty long-term costs. Ask your professional for low-cost, low-maintenance plant options.
