Landscaping Secrets For Your Front-Yard

The front yard is one of the first things people catch of glimpse of when they come over or pass by your home. Make sure your landscaping makes a good first impression with our expert tips that utilize all aspects of your front yard’s space. 

Repeat Plant Types

Using several placements of the same plant type will create a sense to balance and cohesiveness in your front yard. A good base-line to start with might be 5-10 types of perennials, 3 or more varietals of shrubs, and just a few types of trees. You can work around existing plants to balance your landscape’s overall appearance.

Size Beds Correctly

If space allows, plant beds should span about half the width of the house. This ratio gives a visual illusion that your garden wraps around the whole perimeter of your house, making it feel proportionate.
