    Your best bet is to keep it simple, inexpensive, and low maintenance. This means keeping your vegetation to a few basic shrubs (which don't need watering), and adding lots of ground cover plants such as thyme or sedum (also called stonecrops.) These are densely leafy plants that require no watering once established. You can also add a few perennials like coneflowers in the back 1/3rd of yard at this time for spectacular results -- but these do require some water if you go for the annuals (which I usually recommend).

    Something to keep in mind when considering your needs for landscaping and the materials you buy is that it will take time before you see the payoff of what you've done. While a quick fix might be good enough, a well-thought out solution will produce the best results in the long run.

    The very first thing to consider is what activities are performed on this lawn space? If there's no play or walking, then planting flower beds may not work as they require watering and maintenance. If this area sees foot traffic, which most front yards do, then something softer could work better than rocks or stepping stones.

    The cheapest way to landscape is to plant a garden. Try planting herbs, tomatoes, and onions. Herb gardens are inexpensive because they don't need much water and there are far less weeds than in other garden varieties.
    A birdbath is always welcome for any yard, and a bench or sitting area can provide excellent relaxation space off the beaten path where people can take a break from their busy life or even have a conversation with visiting friends--all without having to go inside the house (although you might want to put up wind protectors for brisk days). For lighting try using hanging baskets of flowers;

    Trying to budget landscaping a front yard can be difficult because there are so many factors. The amount of money? Who will do the work? How long does it take? Is everything included with one company or is it site specific? Not to mention that even when you're purchasing necessary trees and plants, they need tender loving care for years before you will get your desired look!
    Most yards landscape in five steps. Contact an arborist- this person knows what types of trees should go where and can lend advice on how much water different breeds need, among other things. Contact a contractor- get estimates from some companies which also include lawn service as part of the package should their bid win out in the end.
