Unique landscaping design makes your front yard stand out from the rest of the neighborhood. Sherwood Gardens Landscape Design & Development shares clever ideas for your front yard landscaping project.
A terraced landscaping design is perfect for homes with a sloped front yard. Several terraced levels can be treated as separate beds that can be used to display a wide variety of flowering plants. If you’re planting seasonal plants, have stepping stones installed on every terrace that connects to the main walkway. It helps make tending to the plants easier, plus it adds visual interest to your front yard.
For more visual interest add a stone, brick or concrete facade on the vertical curb-facing sides of the terraces. Choose colors that complement your home’s exterior color palette. Incorporate outdoor lighting fixtures to highlight it in the evening and guide evening visitors to the steps leading to your front door.
An extended porch is much like a multi-level patio for your front yard and works well as part of your landscape design. You can make your extended porch as private or as visible from the curb as you want, depending on the design. In addition to the wood or composite options, an extended porch can also be made with materials like concrete or stone. An extended porch is great for homes that have limited backyard spaces, as you can have guests come over for a summer barbecue without necessarily being too visible from the curb.
Front Yard Waterfall
Consider including a rock-lined waterfall in your landscaping project, for a peaceful and rustic-looking front yard. A good landscaper can help you design a waterfall that fits the aesthetics of your home, choose the appropriate vegetation and build a good water circulation system that creates a convincing waterfall effect.
