Landscape Project - Sod, Mulch, River Rocks, & Plants

yshopping 5 10 June 28, 2016 at 03:36 PM
We're doing a major landscaping project. We're working on our house having curb appeal. We'll need Sod (St. Augustine Seville for shade), Mulch, River Rocks and Plants such as flowers & scrubs. We started shopping around & it is very expensive

I would truly appreciate any help and advice, and helping me find a deal. Thanks so much for all your help.

Ya, landscaping is expensive Wink You can always put down seed but that doesn't give instant gratification. People around here take buckets to the beach and bring home their own "river rocks". Well now that the last storm undermined part of the highway I don't know if they'll still do that. Not to mention talk about a lot of work!

Another way to save $ is don't get the biggest plants. I bought tiny plants for a hedge and while they took another year or so to fill in my choice was to buy 80 of them at $5 a piece or 80 of them at $20 a piece. I thought that the savings was more than worth it!

Oh, mulch you can get for free if you call a tree trimming place usually although that doesn't mean it'll be the type that you want! Depending on where you live I highly recommend that weed fabric. I placed it down and haven't had to weed one area ever since. Very nice!

Thank you so much for your reply. You've made some good points. I haven't seen any July 4 sales yet.
