The front yard frames your home’s façade. Make a lasting first impression with these front yard landscaping ideas that’ll fit your front yard like a picture-perfect frame.
Low to Mid-Height Shrubs
Shrubs are generally easier to care for and maintain than lawns. Trimming your shrubs won’t be as frequent as mowing the lawn. Another benefit of having a shrub is it can also act as a privacy hedge. If it’s a flowering shrub, you hit two birds with one stone, having a beautiful barrier with lovely blossoms peppered throughout the shrub.
Yes, you read that right. Stones can also be the major element in your front yard landscaping. If you want a modern and contemporary front yard, you can have beautiful stones line up your curb. You can also add gravel, river rocks or slabs to create a textured look to your minimalist front yard.
Raised Flower Plots
Greet everyone with beautiful blooms lining up your curb. Raising your flower plots assures you that it won’t be trampled while also creating a definite area where your flowers can thrive without any competition from wild plants and weeds.
Large Pots and Planter Boxes
If you want to have the ability to rearrange your front yard plants from time to time, use large pots and planter boxes instead. You can choose a uniform shape or mix and match different planter shapes—cubes, tubular or circular. The end result is a modern and contemporary front yard with a neat front yard.
If you value your privacy but still want an interesting front yard look, a walled landscape may be the design you’re looking for. Most front yard landscapes focus on horizontal design, few on vertical ones. In vertical walls, the trick is to pick a variety of plants with various leaf sizes, shapes, and textures to make the wall truly come alive.
