Here are a few budget-friendly landscaping tips to get you started: 

  1. Touch up the mulch

It’s amazing how easily a new batch of mulch can make a garden bed look refreshed. Although it won’t cost you much, this is an easy step to create contrast and make all of the plants pop. A layer of mulch protects the soil from the sun—just be sure to make it about two inches deep. We…
