You can create an oasis with very little money as long as you reuse and recycle various items that you would likely throw away anyway.Luckily, however, there are plenty of upgrades that are affordable, functional, and reasonable for smaller yards. From minor upgrades, like mosquito repelling plants, to larger projects, like climbing walls, you can upgrade your backyard without breaking your bank.
