Hi Happy Pomelo.

I recently had the same problem.  We started building our house last June 2009 and we moved in last March 2010.  Our last area is 370+ and our floor area is 250+. Due to budget, we told ourselves that we will not concern ourselves with the garden.   Pero yun nga kahit anong ayos ng bahay mo pag magulo yung paligid hindi ka pa din mapapalagay.

Luckily there were landscapers who went to our house during the construction.  We asked them to submit the quotation and a drawing of what the garden would look like.  We do not like too many plants because our house is zen type.  Sa akin as long as simple, mawawala yung kalat sa lawn then okay na. We got the cheapest and right now we are just asking the personal gardener of my architect to maintain it.  Ang laki talaga ng pinagbago sa itsura ng area namin.

May mahahanap kang mura trust me.  Mura pero maganda.  If you are not happy with what they can offer, tsaka mo na lang pagandahin.  Kami kasi honest kami sa mga supplier kung ano lang yung budget na kaya namin.

Thanks for all your inputs.

I just haven't posted the recent developments in my garden.  :)

The front curb and front yard were already landscaped, also the first half (nearer the lanai) of my backyard.  I'm happy to report that just this week we had the first harvest of fresh leaves from our basil.  :)

The second half would have to wait, we wanted a roofed garage there and a small compost pit.

^Sis, would love to see pictures of how everything worked out for your garden. :)

mga sissies here.. if you're really interested in landscaping your garden.. better go to guiguinto bulacan.. that the equivalent of divisoria when it comes to plants.. the vendors there will also be happy to do the landscaping job for a fee, but definitely cheaper than landscappers in manila or qc..

if you're not really at ease with them designing the garden, you can search the net for pics and have them copy it for you.. you'll definitely save a lotof bucks ;)

^malapit kami dyan. dyan din ako kumausap ng magla-landscape sa garden namin. kapag nandyan nga ako, ang dami kong gustong ipalagay na halaman sa garden namin kaso hindi naman pwedeng halu-halo dahil dapat may theme ang garden mo.

sa kanila din yung mga palm trees. so napamahal pala dahil dun sa mga puno. :D yun daw kasi ang babagay sa bahay namin. ayoko na nga ipalagay yung puno dahil in the long run matatakpan noon sigurado ko yung bahay namin at baka nga lumaki pa iyon kesa sa bahay namin.

sa pagtatanong ko sa mga garden along tabang, guiguinto, bulacan mura lang ang mga presyo ng mga halaman.
Love God above all else.

^maganda sis mapuno.. malilim.. pwede naman itrim yung puno para hindi masyado matakpan ang bahay niyo.. ;)

mahal ang puno si pangkaraniwang price ng palmtrees kapag mga 5ft nasa 2-3k
compute mo kung ilang puno ilalagay.. then bermuda kasi per square feet.. tapos syempre garden soilpa.. kaya ok na yung quote sayo.. :)

oo sis.. presyong guiguinto.. madalas ako jan.. mura na yon.. well, depende kung gaano kalaki yung likod mo.. 10k not bad na..

would you believe, ate ko spent 6k kakapiraso yung flower box niya.. isang dipa width, then kalahating dipa yung length.. waaaaay overpriced ::) rate sa ortigas yun..

try mo iestimate kung hindi ka ginugulangan.. yungmga may korte na pangdesign(yung may alambre square o bilog) nasa 150 per pc yun kapag sing laki ng bola ng basketball.. mas malaki, mas mahal.. kapag yung malaki, more or less 400-500 per pc..

depende kasi talaga sa gagamiting plants mo makikita kung dinaya ka or hindi eh.. syempre add mo din yung labor cost nila saka transpo ng plants mo.. lalo na may puno yung sayo.. pero dapat nakabermuda na yun ha.. 100k all in kung malaki lot mo sulit na.. kami maliit lang yung garden ng nanay ko, kami pag naglandscape, and wala kaming biniling puno, (madami na kasi kasi) nanay ko spent 15k on plants na.. then garden soil pa naka 7k kami..

again depende sa plants.. some plants kasi, 5, 10, 15, 50, 100 pesos lang.. meron naman 300-400 per piece.. pero isang dangkal lang yung size nun.. hindi mo aakalaing ganun yung presyo..  meron nga akong nakitang cactus 1500-2000 per piece..

sabi nga ng husband ko DIY na lang daw. pero i'll ask around pa din kung merong magku-quote ng mas mura. hindi ko pa alam yung mga specifics ng quotation na ibinigay sa amin. inisip ko nga na siguro tantsahan lang ang ginawa nila kasi hindi naman sila talaga nag-sukat pero nakita na nila yung lugar once.

kami naman nagpalagay lang ng garden soil and bermuda sa gilid at harap ng garahe, then stepping stones. medyo malaki laking area din. we paid about 8k. tapos lahat ng plants sa tabi, nanay ko na lang nagtanim then yung iba sa paso na lang tapos may mga orchids naka hand. maganda naman tingnan pero siyempre di comparable pag professional landscaper ang gumawa. ang impt sa akin okay ang bermuda and i can see green all over the garden para relaxing. aside sa mga ornamental, my mga gulay at herbal plants ding tinanim ang mother ko

mahal pala magpa landscape.  sa bahay ko DIY lang sa front garden, freestyle gardenscape tawag ko dun :D, bumili lang ako ng mga halaman na gusto ko, walang theme kasi gusto ko flowering plants, then buy din ako ng plants na pwede gawing bedding para matakpan yung lupa. yung soil naman lupa galing sa sigaan at compos,di na din ako bumili nun kasi yung dad ko is into vegatable gardening kaya humingi nalang ako sa kanya ng soil. nilagyan ko ng border na buhay na bato.
nag search lang ako sa internet ng mga garden style para may idea ako kung pano gagawin ko. yung ibang plants di ko irectly tinanim sa garden, nakalagay sa pot tapos ibinaoon ko sa lupa yung pot para mukhang sa lupa sya nakatanim. para macontrol ko yung paglaki ng halaman at di kumalat sa garden area.
