Best Way to Utilize Your Front Yard Space in Your Landscape Design

Your front yard is the first thing people see when coming to your home. The shrubs, lawn or gardens between your front door and curb are responsible for creating the first impression of your home. Finding the best way to utilize the space in your front yard depends on your style and the impression you want to relay to those viewing your home. Here are some ideas of landscape designs to best utilize your front yard space.

  • Privacy. If you want beauty in your landscaping, but privacy in your home, consider adding privacy trees or shrubs to your front yard design. Hedges or shrubs can be elegant, yet block the view, giving your family privacy in your home.
  • Simple. Small front yards can look overcrowded or cluttered with too many trees, plants or features. Keep it simple with small flowers and plants edging the walkway or front of the house, with a lush lawn or rock garden out front.
  • Focal points. Bring attention to your front yard with focal points like a flowing water feature, fountain or stone piece.
  • Hardscapes. If you have a slope in front of your home, you can use a retaining walls to create more planting area with tiers. Consider a natural stone retaining wall for a beautiful edging to your front yard. Other hardscapes can include fieldstone walkways or a front patio.

You want your front yard to match your style while making a great first impression. Talk with your local landscape designer to find the best way to use your front yard space, big or small, to ensure the best curb appeal.
