​Design a Beautiful Garden on a Budget

Posted by Tammy Sons on 21st Mar 2015

Major Elements

Fast growing trees offer shade within a few years, allowing you to enjoy the outdoors on a hot afternoon. Dwarf fruit trees are a good choice for sunny locations in small yards, plus you get the added benefit of the freshest fruit in the neighborhood.

Privacy Elements

Trellised vines and tall bushes provide privacy in a natural setting. Hydrangeas are one of the most popular choices. They have large, beautiful floral displays in shades of blue, pink, or white right up until the first frost.

Flower Gardens

Choose your favorite plants for the various flower gardens around the house and yard. Perennials are plants that live several years. In northern climates, they become dormant in the winter and then sent shoots through the soil each spring. Fill in the garden with annuals, which live only one season but offer striking colors.

Patio Garden

No patio is complete without potted plants. Buy plants that add greenery as well as color. For example, alternate leafy green plants with flowering ones. Hanging plants, such as begonias, are an inexpensive way to dress up your patio. You can buy begonias and other cheap plants online.

Selecting Plants

Choose varieties that will thrive in your gardening zone. The USDA has divided the country into 11 gardening zones. Criteria include first frost dates in the autumn and last frost dates in the spring. After determining your gardening zone, which you can do at an online gardening site, choose plants according to the amount of sunlight in your yard. For example, some plants thrive in full sun while others need the protection of partial shade.

Buying Your Plants

You can buy begonias, ajuga, and other cheap plants online. It is so much more convenient to have everything delivered to your door, especially when buying trees. Online nurseries provide first quality plants and trees without the expensive overhead of a brick and mortar store. They are able to pass on these savings to their customers. They guarantee live delivery and satisfaction.
