What Houzz contributors are saying:
2. Do some of the work yourself. If you’re willing to roll up your sleeves and put some sweat into your garden project, you can save money on the price of installation. If you’re working with a landscape designer, ask him or her to order the plants for you and place them where they should be planted around your yard. Instead of having the designer’s team dig holes and plant them in the ground, do it yourself with the help of family, friends or anyone else you can recruit. If you’re comfortable with building projects, consider constructing a fence, arbor, trellis or raised beds on your own to save on contractor fees.
