Low-Cost Ways to Add a Luxurious Feel to Your Garden

If you’re lucky enough to have a garden or backyard, you need to maximize this space to the fullest. A well-designed garden can act as a sanctuary. Now is your chance to connect with nature and relax in the comfort of your own home.

Sprucing up your backyard doesn’t have to be an expensive or time-consuming task. Here are seven low-cost ways that you can add a luxurious feel to your garden…

Find a Theme

A luxurious garden will always look cohesive and the best way to ensure everything matches is to find a suitable theme. Look for inspiration online and save images of gardens that you wish to recreate. Some popular garden themes include Japanese Zen Garden, Moroccan Nights Garden, or a Beach Theme Garden.

Set Your Budget

As a rule of thumb, contractors advise to spend 10% of your home’s value on landscaping. However, we are certain that this can be done for much cheaper. Think about the design elements you wish to include. What can you DIY? What is worth splurging on? Add it all up and stick to the budget.

Add a Fire Pit

Does anything scream luxury more than a beautiful fire pit? PureModern has some excellent choices to splurge on if you wish to include this specialty item in your budget. A fire pit is a great place to sit and entertain your guests with a bottle of wine.

Create an Herb Garden

A small herb garden can add an element of sophistication to any space, not to mention the benefits of having an infinite number of fresh herbs. Not only do they require minimal maintenance, but they also come in handy during BBQ season. You can also create cute signs to label each herb.

Add a Vintage Rug

Adding a rug to your garden or patio may seem rather odd. However, this is a great way to make the space feel more alive and warmer. Since the rug is going to spend most of its life outside, its best to search for a great secondhand option rather than splurging on a brand-new one.

Build a Stepping Path

Stepping paths are great for any garden as they allow your guests to keep their shoes squeaky clean and free from mud. This is a super easy DIY project that can be created with gravel, wooden panels, stones, or even tiles.

Go Overboard with Greenery

One of the best (and cheapest) ways to bring life to any garden is to plant lots and lots of greenery. The more flowers, plants, and trees the better. You can then add cute garden trinkets as decoration. 

Once you’ve decided on the layout of your design, the theme, and your budget, you can start getting to work. Don’t be afraid to dream big. DIY may seem daunting at first, but we’re sure that you will get the hang of it in no time. What are you waiting for? Your luxurious garden awaits.
