5 ways to transform your small garden on a budget

by Giles Johnson Owner
Most people whose living spaces allow them, have gardens. Gardens can be an amazing addition to any home as they are both ornamental and functional.

On the one hand, they give the home a beautiful appearance and serve a great spot for picture taking. On another hand, they can also be sued to grow decorative flowers for the house as well as vegetables which aid healthy eating and helps save money in some cases.

As a result, those who own gardens often take great pains to care for them and keep them looking good. Fortunately, the process of transforming your garden doesn’t have to cost a lot of money.

Here are a few ways to transform your small garden on a budget:

1. Change up your plants: The single easiest way to transform your garden is to change up the plants that are in the garden.

The reason for this is that they are the single most prominent things that exist in the garden and are the centre of attention.

If you have an ornamental garden, make some changes to the types of flowers you are planting. You can remove or add some new species to give the garden a new feel.

If your garden is a vegetable one, add a few small decorative plants near the area to give the garden a whole new look.

2. Change your pots: In the case of decorative gardens, the plants are grown usually in flower pots or in flowerbeds with a protective barrier.

A very simple way to change up your garden is to simply change the pots you use. Pots can be gotten inexpensively from local stores and the plants can be transferred fairly easily.

Make sure the colour of the pots you will be using is in line with your overall colour scheme.

3. Add some lights: Whether your garden is at a windowsill or in your background, it can serve as an aesthetic focal point for your home.

Visit a retailer such as Lampwise and purchase lights such as garden ground lights to add a bit of flair to your garden.

During Christmas time, consider using string lights to create a whimsical feel to your garden area. These light options could include hanging lights, fairy lights, and even a mini Christmas tree.

4. Add garden ornaments: Just like lawns, there are ornaments that are made specifically for garden areas.

Some of these ornaments include small garden statues, signs, ribbons and so on. Before you begin purchasing them, decide on what the theme of your garden is going to be.

More often than not, you do not need expensive or complex items to decorate your garden but a few decorations which can be gotten for a very low cost.


Transforming the look of your garden doesn’t have to cost hundreds of pounds.

The key to making this transformation is to find a theme you want to go with and using inexpensive items in a creative way to achieve your desired results.
