A well-designed front yard landscape highlights the beauty and architectural features of a home and adds value to a home by enhancing the curb appeal. While creating an attractive garden can take time and money, there are some creative, low-maintenance ways to update the exterior of your home without breaking the bank.
Mini water feature
A water feature in your front yard will instantly take the appeal of the curb to a new level and make it relaxing, calming, and inviting. It could be a pond, waterfall, or fountain – it’s up to you and the style of your front yard. A small pond with water lilies is a classic, a modern waterfall with large rocks has a contemporary feel, and a small fountain is a great option for homeowners who like the sounds of a water feature but don’t want to care about a pond or a large fountain. Choose water-related yearbooks and ground covers to ring the fountain without crowding it.
Nice picket fence
Plant the fenceline with a small variety of flowers. By repeating three or four flowers in a row, you can create a simple but stunning display that the neighborhood will be the envy of all. Hybrid roses are usually tough and resilient and, with moderate care, can reach their full potential within a year or two of planting. While you need to monitor your roses for insect infestation and disease, long-flowering strains get you three seasons of flowers. Rock different colors to keep the fence neutral or to contrast it as it turns purple or pink.
If you’re too busy to make the border look perfect, go for pots. While it’s particularly useful for bulbs that need special care and often hibernate indoors, you can also buy potted flowers, evergreen shrubs, or creeping ground cover and simply swap them out for new plants as the seasons change. This is a particularly useful idea for neglected side courtyards that are left free.
Line up your paths to make them look cooler! It can be made with different types of greens and flowers, with large stones and pebbles, or all of them here and there. While evergreens are sure to keep a garden from feeling bare in winter, azaleas have the added benefit of producing stunning flower displays in spring and early summer. However, they can be a perfect liner for the trails. Combined with a short but colorful ground cover like creeping thyme or phlox, a short hedge can be one of the most low-maintenance options for flower beds and sidewalks.
Since it's summer and everyone is planning a vacation, it's high time to find out if everything is okay. Your suitcases, bags and of course documents - you will need some holders or pouches to keep the passports safe.
