No backyard landscape!

Need some quick but inexpensive ideas to fix my daughters' backyard!

Do you have any pictures or the dimensions of the yard? Also, the climate?

Short of putting in new sod to replace the grass, a quick inexpensive fix is to mow and edge everything neatly. Same goes if it has bushes (trim them neatly) and trees (prune).
Also, if there are existing flower beds, add new much, which is inexpensive and can really revitalize the look

Next, I would recommend potted plants/flowers in a variety of sizes and some with color. This time of year you should be able to get some on sale (or yard sales). As fall arrives, you can also get nice Mums that will add color to a yard.

If she does not have an existing flower bed, with a little work, one can be created. Depending on your personal taste you could plant a few shrubs with a lawn ornament as decoration (bird bad) in the bed or simply plant some annuals and perennials for your area and add mulch.

I also like a little "interest" in the backyard. A couple of lawn chairs with a table or a bench with potted plants next to it to draw the eye to the bench.

Hope this helps.
