Front Yard Landscaping

The front yard is the first thing people see when they look at your property, so it makes sense to spend just as much time landscaping it as the backyard.

First impressions count and the front yard is what people judge your property on. The front yard not only works to please the eye but to keep prying eyes out.

Front yards vary in size greatly and perform different functions. They are the access to the street, they require a drive way, some where to store your car, and you also need to be able to access your garage via your front yard.

Front yards really need to be functional, more so then any other area of your property.

A front yard should look good all year round, without the need of much maintenance. The best way to landscape any front yard is to keep it simple with groupings of trees and shrubs.

Smaller plants and evergreens will look good all year.

If you do any paving for driveways, make sure you know what you are doing or hire a professional to give you a hand, that's why they are there.

A front yard should have four major points; A focal point; Unique paving style; Close planting; And a smart design.
