Spring is in full swing and many companies are looking to spruce up the exterior as nature begins to bloom. It’s time to break out the garden carts and get to work, as you want to get a jump on landscaping before things really start to grow.
Don’t worry; a good landscape job doesn’t need to break the bank. There are plenty of ways you can direct your crew to save some money. According to the Kansas City Star, one way to save money on mulch is to order it delivered in bulk. Typically, people will buy multiple bags of mulch and shuttle to and from the store. Buying in bulk allows you to fulfill your need at once and save money in the long run.
Additionally, while fellow buildings may take a bright color approach with their landscape, you may want to opt for greenery to save some money. Not only that, but the news provider reports that greens are lower maintenance than plants with bright pops of color.
The Huffington Post also suggests choosing perennial plants, because they can last for years without having to be replaced. While it may increase your budget in the first year, you’ll save more money in the long run.
