Angie's List: Landscaping at Any Budget


Now that it's finally spring, it's time to think about those landscaping projects.

The experts at Angie's List have some tips on landscaping done right at any budget.

For $500, you could get several applications of fertilization and a weed control program. For a half-acre lot, you could have your lawn mowed, trimmed, and edged weekly for four months.

For $5,000, you could install a new patio or retaining wall, but not necessarily all at once.

"If you're dreaming about a big, fancy project for your landscaping, you should talk to a landscaper, even if you're unsure about your budget," says Angie Hicks, Founder of Angie's List. "The great thing about landscaping is it can be done in phases. Talk to your landscaper. For example, if you're thinking about doing an outdoor kitchen, instead of going all out and doing it in one summer, add the fire pit this year and another element the next."

Angie's List says the outside of your house is definitely not something you should ignore, because investments in landscaping can add as much as 14 percent to the value of your home.
