Many people pay more attention to the interior part of their houses and less to the exterior. However, landscaping ideas that are well carried out can increase the aesthetic value of your house.
Appropriately placed shrubs, flowers, plants and garden edges can enhance the whole appeal of a flat front yard.
In addition to the ideas presented in the article on Carve Your Creation, here are some easy-to-implement landscaping ideas for your flat front yard:
You can landscape with many different types of rocks, including smooth rocks found in edges of water bodies.
When placed in various heights and lengths, they can enhance the curb appeal of the outdoors of a home. Rocks can be placed near the entrance to the house and can be used to line the driveway.
Hanging flower baskets in the front yard will give a fresh and elegant appeal to your home, although they do have to be changed now and then to maintain that fresh look.
Flowers can be planted around the house and pruned to the desired shape and style. A wide variety of flowers can be used to create a perfect look, but care should be taken to avoid overdoing it.
A flower bed border can be included.
3. Water Features
A pond in the middle of the yard can evoke a cozy and inviting feel. Lining it with rocks and water plants will give it a natural look.
Some small fish can be added for curious visitors. You should take care to maintain and keep the water clear and free from silt.
A fountain can be used as an alternative; including a bubbling feature should turn some heads.
4. Paths and Walkways
High-traffic areas should be marked, especially those leading to the garage.
Lavender can be used to line pathways. This flower is very hardy and comes in a variety of beautiful hues.
Gravel can be placed on the pathway and potted plants can be added at periodic intervals.
5. Climbing Plants
Climbing plants can add a homely feel to your landscape. Different species can be used, but climbing moon flower is recommended — it has white flowers that open from dusk to dawn.
Pruning will have to be done to prevent them from overgrowing and turning wild.
All the best with your front yard landscaping!
