Front yards serve to increase your curb appeal and set the right frame for your home. Landscaping helps a lot in this and bringing attention to your home. There are many ways to achieve a beautiful front yard. There is the traditional green lawn with or without the picket fence, well-manicured hedges and shrubs, or a flowerbed carpeting your front yard. To know more which of these design ideas fit your resources best, read on.
The Green Carpet
Front yards are your chance to pull off that great big first impression and provide a warm welcome to your guests at the same time. A heavy burden, definitely, but it can easily be doable by giving the eyes an easy relaxing sight to focus on. If you do not have a wide expanse of front yard, you may consider going the traditional way and planting a groundcover. There are different varieties of groundcover grasses which suits different soil types so it’s best to know first the soil type in your front yard before picking a groundcover.
Flowers on the Steps
Sloping front yards are a challenge to landscape. But to the right landscape artist, this can be a perfect location to install retaining walls, multi-level flowerbeds and plant beds where each plant has a spot to shine in. You can also experiment with container plots, fencing, and even landscape lighting.
Modern, Eco-Friendly Minimalist
For those who are looking for the easiest front yard design to maintain, consider a gravel-covered front yard sparsely dotted by local plant species which aren’t as water hungry. From Mexican Mint Marigold to Evergreen Wisteria and Mint can be excellent choices for plantings. A key to choosing plant varieties is to stick to plants which are either native to Texas or those which are drought-resistant.
