Whole books have been devoted to the concept of low-budget landscaping, but it all boils down to two things: common sense and following the plan Mother Nature put in place.

"My mother always told me the best way to keep a house clean is not to mess it up in the first place," says Lee Garrard RLA/ASLA, co-owner of MedicineWheel Land Planning in Athens, Georgia and Charleston, South Carolina. "If you don't mess up the land, you don’t have to invest a lot of money to repair it. Nature provides us with everything we need to work with the land instead of against it."

Here are a few inexpensive and easy ways to help you grow—not spend—a lot of green.
