Low Cost Backyard Ideas


https://hideawayscreen.com/ (Laser Cut Metal Screens)

Hello everybody – Micah Outdoor Living Guy with some low-cost options for the backyard.

1) String Lights: string lights are low cost, and they are very attractive. They light up your space adding distinction to your entire outdoor area. A low-cost option adding loads of value.

2) Simple Fire Pit: another low-cost backyard idea is a simple fire pit. You might think that’s a bit expensive, but this is something you can do yourself very easily. A wood burning fire pit with brick from a local hardware store – build the base – fill the walls.

3) Backyard Movie Theatres: a low-cost backyard idea is an outdoor movie theater. No, it does not cost that much to create a DYI. I think I spent like $30 for my screen and then a simple projector – there are many different price points.

4) Water Features: another low-cost option for a backyard idea is a water feature. You can go very cost effective with these do-it-yourself projects. A flowerpot turns into a beautiful bubbler or you could do more of a meandering water feature.

5) Wood Retaining Wall: Using wood to retain the property can be a cost-effective option instead of building it out of concrete or concrete block. or some of the other material that he could have cost option for

6) Dry Creek Beds: are cool features – they are basically River Rock which you can buy in bulk at an inexpensive price point. They create a nice destination of the nice but also do a phenomenal job of handling drainage.

7) Gravel Patio: on a budget – use gravel as a patio. You can do this in a way that makes it look like it was stylistically what you chose instead of a low-cost option.

8) Hammocks: Create a little destination using a hammock.

9) Privacy Screens: Privacy is a huge concern for many people and there are many low-cost options.

  5. ledama kipngeno on September 20, 2022 at 6:42 pm

    privacy screen..love

  6. Nacho Orozco on September 20, 2022 at 6:43 pm

    Thank God this was a budget idea! I can’t wait to see what rich people can do

  7. josefina feliciano on September 20, 2022 at 6:46 pm

    I love the black flat stones backyard idea. Can you please share if there are more of this idea. please and thank you.

  8. Madeline Baia on September 20, 2022 at 6:48 pm

    That’s seriously the most ridiculous suggestions. LIGHTS!!! REALLY!!! I have a firepit that is metal, which is easy to move and budget friendly.
    You don’t get budgets do you.

  9. Miguel B on September 20, 2022 at 6:48 pm

    Awesome ideas bro, really find this helpful

  10. Sam U on September 20, 2022 at 6:50 pm

    Setting all this up is great. Keeping them up and maintained is the PITA. If you live where there’s trees and fall leaves, moss and already, how do you keep things clean? When it’s time to wash your patio, how do you protect the furnitures and all that nice and fancy walls, pots and chairs? Even when you don’t have trees, your neighbors might. Which means wind brings them to yours. Ideas would be welcomed.

  11. PanZ3r69 on September 20, 2022 at 6:50 pm

    budget ? lol yeah right

  12. c b on September 20, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    Agree not sure what their budget is but not cheap

  13. Willie J on September 20, 2022 at 6:53 pm

    Private screen and the gravel back yard and the screen for the projector . All three are what I Am looking to do

  14. Lou on September 20, 2022 at 6:53 pm

    I’ve just moved into a new build and the garden is a blank canvas. It’s a big project and I have a few ideas but I’m on a budget so doing it all myself.
    I really like the water feature, and privacy screens, also the gravel patio as that is what I’m doing.
    Thank you, I will definitely checking out your ideas again 😀👍🏻

    Love watching your video special the outdoor light that you can just hang them anywhere we did this in our backyard with a large gazebo and it’s so beautiful doing the summertime and holidays

  17. EBISU 88 on September 20, 2022 at 6:55 pm

    "budget" 🤦🏻‍♂️

  18. Drew Cook on September 20, 2022 at 6:57 pm

    Waste of time lol

  19. darlene sawyer on September 20, 2022 at 6:58 pm

    I love your ideas. I am a single senior citizen looking for low cost deck in my backyard. My yard has lots of tree roots so a low wood deck 12 by 12 would be great maybe add a cover at later date. Can you tell me how to find easy plans for this project?

  20. Linda Louie on September 20, 2022 at 6:58 pm

    I appreciate the fire pit ideas. Thanks!

  21. Sharleen Marcum on September 20, 2022 at 6:59 pm

    These are all great ideas and you’ll find several of them coming soon to my backyard!!

  22. Irai Rod on September 20, 2022 at 7:01 pm

    I like the combination of gravel and large pavers or flagstone. I garden for pollinators and other wildlife, and I try to improve the environment by doing as many sustainable things as I can in an urban townhouse, so it’s important to me to maintain permeability so the water can seep into the ground, rather than run off. Thank you for all of these images, they were very inspiring!

  23. Anna-Marie Pellett on September 20, 2022 at 7:01 pm

    I like the gravel and the river rocks and it gave me some ideas about drainage. I have a nature area about 50 x 60 and it’s raised up anywhere from a half foot to 3 foot on two sides and the front part of it which runs along the sidewalk has a landscaping block retaining wall so on one side I’m having trouble with runoff and I’m working on tackling that problem. Thank you new to the channel and really love this video

  24. STRID on September 20, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    that awful zebra striped couch choice made me not watch this video. Credibility went straight down the toilet

  25. Frank Su Huang on September 20, 2022 at 7:04 pm


  26. L H on September 20, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    Thank you! I love the gravel idea!

  27. ADSaaron on September 20, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    *Water Features…*
    If you are considering a water feature keep this in mind. A water feature is like keeping water as a pet. Chores include doing checkups, feeding it, cleaning it, picking up after it etc. The smaller it is the better. A water feature that isn’t treated properly will cost you a lot of money. If not you will have to put the water feature down. IE ,turn it off/drain it, at which point it doesn’t exist anymore.

  28. michael moore on September 20, 2022 at 7:08 pm

    I’m sit here day after day, daydreaming of beautiful backyard. When I bought my house. The backyard is the one place that I wanted to improve the most. I created a beautiful front Courtyard. Using sound like your suggestion. The courtyard came out private and beautiful, but unusable, because i used 6" deep gravel. So now when you go to sit in the chair the beautiful lawn furniture I bought you either fall out the chair because they start sinking in the gravel. But I see in some of your videos you use the same type of lawn furniture that I bought on P gravel. I have money to use on the backyard. I have had six heart attacks since I have moved into this house. I live on a very tight budget. And I have never had the opportunity to invite my family over for a barbecue. I have gathered at many family home four different occasions. I have always wanted to invite my family here if for one time if any ( and yeah I did say 6 heart attacks )

  29. cornelia smith on September 20, 2022 at 7:09 pm

    Excellent video! This goes to show that you can have an amazing outdoor space at any price point! Face Book Marketplace is your friend!

  30. Jacqueline Springs on September 20, 2022 at 7:11 pm

    I was so delighted to watch your program and any other ideas would be appreciated

  31. Teressa Cooks on September 20, 2022 at 7:14 pm

    Can you shoot or give ideas for transforming rentals spaces e.g. Apartments/Townhomes/Condos as they come with restrictions and a smaller footprints. Thanks 😁

  32. Miami Sammy on September 20, 2022 at 7:14 pm

    I like many of these ideas. I have several living spaces in my back yard, including a DIY firepit in one with string lights. My water feature fell apart from the weather. So, I’ll have to revisit that. I have a rustic theme going at the house and love the dry creek bed and meandering water feature. But, I’m not up for the engineering and upkeep on those. I also have the movie screen set up against the house near the fire pit area. That is actually pretty cool and have a second location in the driveway so we can invite neighbors over to watch as the walk by. The mobile projector and sound gear help with the mobility of the gear. Privacy screening is a big thing for me now as is shade. I hadn’t thought of incorporating a living space in the front yet. But, I’ll definitely see what I can do once the driveway/walkway are redone.

    Every person or drink is mixed with love.

  34. martina colasante on September 20, 2022 at 7:16 pm

    this was so useful and inspiring!

  35. Svět schtark on September 20, 2022 at 7:18 pm


  36. Jeanie Davenport on September 20, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    Yeah. None of this is what I call “low-cost”!

  37. Brooke Miller on September 20, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    Lolol if I had those backyards from idea #1, I wouldn’t need string lights to bring more attention.. I’d be out there all the time if I had a bomb bbq area, jacuzzi, in ground pool, super comfy seating areas around a big fire pit, etc. it’d be more realistic if you just showed ideas on someone’s “normal” backyard instead of these super expensive “luxurious” backyards already.

  38. Maciej Fassa on September 20, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    For good patio doors I can recommend Dako, good price and nice design. Maybe it will be helpful to somebody.

  39. MK Yang on September 20, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    Love your ideas

  40. Nne O. on September 20, 2022 at 7:24 pm

    Just subscribed! ✌🏾

  41. Elizabeth Shelnutt on September 20, 2022 at 7:27 pm

    hmmm, I think the man is very very confused about what "low cost" and "budget" means to the average person today. The video and the whole experience he is presenting is kinda rude and snobbish.

  42. Joseph Fahey on September 20, 2022 at 7:27 pm

    No offense, don’t look like low cost on any of them

  43. Nasir RN on September 20, 2022 at 7:28 pm

    Dry creek bed, string lights movie projector and privacy screens resonated with me. Can you add some budget friendly, townhome backyard small pool ideas??

  44. brightideas Jones on September 20, 2022 at 7:30 pm

    I just subscribe I love your content❤️

  45. Michele on September 20, 2022 at 7:32 pm

    You music is too loud.

  46. Joan Esposito on September 20, 2022 at 7:33 pm

    Loved it thank you moving from California back to Illinois next year and you’re gonna give me good ideas for a house..so I can have a better type patio then Midwest usual does and thank you for the privacy Wood ideas!

  47. Patricia Kiteke on September 20, 2022 at 7:35 pm

    Love these ideas!

  48. A Twisted Bunch on September 20, 2022 at 7:38 pm

    What do you define as low cost??? These are out of my price range! What do you have for budgets under 500? And seriously not many people can afford this stuff. This video makes me angry, I was excited to see “low cost”, ya maybe if you have thousands to spend, and then if you do – ITS NOT LOW COST!!!!

  49. Debbie g on September 20, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    How about a makeover with $500 budget or a townhouse with a small back yard? That would be helpful.

  50. Jacqueline Springs on September 20, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    Those orange wall or fence type materials I’m interested I live in Texas an mosquitos are horrible in summer sometimes in winter
