10 Ways To Improve Your Garden On A Budget

Posted on
Improve Your Garden

Want to spruce your garden up ready for summer but don’t quite have the budget? No problem. You can improve your garden without breaking the bank. Here’s how.

Give Your Shed and Fence a Lick of Paint

Don’t underestimate the difference a fresh coat of paint or stain can make to the look of your garden. Whether you want a rustic cottage garden look or a modern but classic feel, it’s possible. Plus, it won’t cost the earth.

Bring the Indoors Outdoors

A budget-friendly way to improve your garden for the summer is to make it cosy. Bring out some cushions, throws, and rugs and turn your patio or decking into a cosy space. Perfect for when you don’t want to let a chill ruin those long summer evenings.

Light it Up

There are so many types of solar lighting available now. From spotlights to lanterns and fairy lights, there’s something for every garden. Use them to light a path or wrap some fairy lights around a tree to make your outside space look magical.


Adding accessories is a great way to improve your garden that doesn’t cost the earth. Outdoor wall art, planters, and themed accessories can all transform the impression you create.

Improve Your Garden with a Clean Up

If your garden is looking a bit jaded, your first step should be to give it a good cleanup. Tidy up your lawn and flower beds. Give your decking or patio a good blast with a pressure washer. Get rid of any junk lying that’s lying around. Voila, a blank canvas to start from.

Revamp Your Plant Pots

Before you head to the garden centre and part with any cash, wait. Can you bring your old plant pots back to life by painting them? Or if you want to get creative, who says you have to use actual pots anyway? You can plant in anything from a wheelbarrow to an old watering can.

Feed your Lawn

Sprucing up your lawn can make all the difference to a tired-looking garden. However, the nitrogen-rich fertilisers your lawn needs can be pricey. This is where a compost heap can come into its own. Feel smug if you’ve got one because organic waste can really restore lawn health. Oh yeah, and it doesn’t cost a thing.

Pimp Your Garden Furniture

Don’t let weathered garden furniture dull your shine. Sprucing it up can really improve your garden. Clean it up, sand it, and give it a new coat of paint. Add cushions and you’re good to go. If it is wooden, consider using OSMO to bring it back to life

Grow your Own Veg

Create your own vegetable plot or grow them in containers if you’re short on space. It’s rewarding, healthy and it can give your garden that cosy cottage garden vibe.

Improve Your Garden With Wheelie Bin Storage

If your wheelie bins are a blot on your landscape, hiding them is a surefire way to improve your garden. If you’re on a budget, you want to invest in something that’s going to last. Like our high-quality handmade wheelie bin storage units for instance. Want to keep your wheelie bins out of sight and secure? Want to keep pests and vandals out? Need to access your bins easily?
