Tackling DIY projects around the house is a great way to save money. Doing landscaping yourself is possible, but you’ll want to carefully consider everything that goes into maintaining your yard. While one person might be able to happily mow, water, and weed a lawn daily, another might struggle with managing even the most basic lawn care needs. Taking a look at these steps can help you determine if you’re ready to make the switch to DIY landscaping.

Be Honest about Time & Labor Constraints

Some people make lawn care look easy, but there’s more to handling landscaping needs than simply turning on the sprinklers. If you work many hours a week, you might not have enough time to mow your lawn, trim trees, and assess the health of the plants on your property. People who have physical challenges or health conditions that limit their ability to perform manual labor may also want to think carefully about how they approach DIY landscaping. Fortunately, for people with time limitations or physical constraints, there are some workarounds that can make it possible, such as reducing how much grass is on your property.

Sketch a General Design of Your Property

Careful planning makes DIY landscaping easier. Start by drawing a rough outline of your property to begin to identify how and where you can make some changes. For instance, you might notice no one uses the patches of grass near the exterior walls of your property, and those could benefit from being replaced with decorative rocks such as white pebbles. You’ll also want to think about where decorative plants will have the most impact, such as around the front walkway and porch area. 

Eliminate High-Maintenance Plants

Successful DIY landscapers will often tell you grass is their nemesis. While everyone loves bright green areas of lush grass, the truth is most homeowners overdo it. Reducing how much grass exists in your landscape allows you to also cut down on how much time you spend mowing, fertilizing, and watering the lawn. Plus, you’ll notice your utility bills go down when you focus on using more drought-resistant plants in your landscaping. Many succulents and other plants with low water needs also add color to the landscape without being a drain on your wallet.

Add Texture & Color with Decorative Rocks

Replacing grass with landscaping rocks offers benefits that include providing a way to beautify the space with minimal maintenance. Decorative rocks also improve drainage, which is perfect for correcting areas in the landscape that flood or get muddy. As you plan your new low-maintenance landscaping design, take a moment to explore the different colors, sizes, and types of decorative rocks available to choose ones that enhance your property. When you mix up sizes and colors, such as green jade river rock, pure gold pebbles, and polished black pebbles, landscaping with decorative rocks can produce impressive results in your yard.

Work with Reliable Landscaping Suppliers

Making changes in your landscaping design that foster success for DIY care is easier when you work with suppliers who are genuinely helpful. A reliable supplier will offer assistance such as lift gate service that takes your new landscaping rocks directly to where you want them placed on the ground. You can also work with a supplier to figure out how much to order when you’re adding new materials to the landscape.

No matter how big or small your landscaping project may be, you can add incredible character, depth, and beauty to it with river rocks, stones, and Mexican beach pebbles.
