Are you thinking of redesigning your front yard?
These days, a lot of people invest in landscaping their yard. After all, the front yard of your house is the first thing people see when they visit. Your house’s façade gives your guests the first impression of your home.
Are you looking for modern front yard ideas for your garden? Don’t know how to start beautifying your lawn? I’ve got four ideas to help you get started.
- Front yard shrubs
One of the easiest ways to decorate the front of your house is through shrubbery. I don’t mean those trimmed and manicured bushes you see in English manor houses. There are a lot of kinds of shrubbery you can choose from.
For my home, I chose to use dill shrubs to line the pavement leading to my door. This way, I not only get to have great shrubbery, but herbs to cook with too!
I always wanted to have one of those cobblestone walkways leading to my door. Now, I have one!
Paving is a good way to decorate your lawn. You can choose brick, limestone or cobblestones.
Flowers will always add beauty to your yard. Plant vibrant ones that will bloom brightly in the summer. You can also plant both perennials and annuals, so you’ll be sure you’ll have blooms in the spring and the summer.
Another modern yard idea is putting lamps or lanterns around the yard. For a more artsy feel, you can even put Japanese lanterns on the trees in your yard. Lights always make spaces look extra magical.
Hopefully, with these four tips, you’ll be on your way to having a house façade that you can be proud of.
Warning: when it comes to designing your front yard, make sure you use weather-proof materials.
