Cheap landscaping does not necessarily mean something poor and inconspicuous. You can make the area next to your house more beautiful with your own hands and with the help of materials you have at hand. If you match everything right, no one will notice that your design cost you almost nothing.
For example, you can take materials that remained after building your house or your neighbors’ house. Shells will look very nice if you cover them with varnish and use for the alpine rock garden. Pebble looks nice as well, especially if you combine it with shells of big sizes.
There are two ways of creating a decorative pond: the first one is buying a ready-made bottom of a pool in a store, and the second one is digging a foundation pit and laying a film on the bottom of it. Then connect all the necessary pipes – and your small pond is ready. Now you can fill it with plants and fish. Lilies look very nice in such a pond. Duckweed will create an impression, as if your pond has been habitable since long ago. It is important for the water to be flowing; it will save your plants and fish from dying. A pond created with your own hands will emphasize the beauty of your garden. You just have to use your imagination.
