    Best way to get your garden done on a budget


    What alternatives/choices do I have at my disposal should I wish to have my garden rebuilt but I don’t have the money right now to have the job done all at once? I suppose what I mean is, is there a way to have half the job done without the garden looking like it’s half-finished? Maybe an intelligent approach could be used to achieve this?

    "Start on the hedges and major shrubs, make sure all pruning is done and it’s nice and tidy. Keep lawn cut and edges done.
    At a later date, do your patio or new fences etc. also an archway entrance is a nice idea for finishing the garden with Rose crawlers"

    "The best way is to draw up a garden design and implement it in selections.
    You should start by looking at the ground upwards.
    No point in putting structures up if the groundwork isn't completed first"

    "It depends on how you want to transform your garden and how it currently looks. It could be a mixture of decking, astroturf and slabs. The correct way would be decking first, slabs and then astroturf. As i said, it depends on how you want your garden to look at the end and your idea of materials to use"

    "There are no budget options, just budget materials
    The price for all landscaping materials has gone up dramatically since the pandemic also after the recent bad weather and winds the price for fencing has doubled making it harder to keep prices low for us landscapers.
    So the answer to your question is no.
    Maybe you could do the garden in stages fencing always first for your levels.
    Patio next stage and then grass turf to finish."

    "Start with complete prep adding hardcore that way any rain will have little effect on the ground as if it was all much look for reclaimed slabs where possible"

    "Depending on what you would like you could do a patio or the landscaping first so it doesn’t look half done because you could still leave your grass area or whichever way you would like to do it."
