Landscape Design on a Dime in Chicago

Similar to the HGTV show, Design on a Dime, this client needed their parkway done on a tight budget. We were able to use some of their existing plants from the backyard in addition to a couple new shrubs. With new soil and mulch to top it off, we were able to fill the area and stay within their budget. With time, the plants will continue to grow and fill in the space. A beautiful garden is certainly possible on a smaller budget. Take a look at the pictures and let us know what you think! Any questions or comments are always welcome. 🙂

Small Front Yard Garden on a Budget in Chicago

We recently worked on this Chicago home’s front yard garden, cleaning up the space and working with a smaller budget. It was a small space, but I’m proud of what we were able to achieve, bringing pops of color and year round interest within her budget. Here are a couple shots of the area before we started work.

We were able to clean this space up a lot, still keep a few of their existing plants after trimming them and add a bunch of new ones. Take a look!
