Is your front yard a little boring? The landscaping in the front of your house is what makes a first impression on your guests and neighbors and welcomes people to your home, so it should live up to the beauty of the house. Here are 3 helpful tips to keep in mind when designing your front yard, which you can see in the example of our work above.
- Use varying levels. This adds so much more visual interest to even a small yard, and it draws the eye in to your front door.
- Embrace organic shapes. The undulating curves of these flower beds, as well as the brick pathway to the front door, contrast beautifully with the stately architecture of the house.
- Use a limited color scheme to create harmony. This yard features bright greens, dark mulch, vibrant purple accent plantings, and a repeating motif of black decorative items, as seen in the urns, fountain, door and large pots.
