3 Great Front Yard Landscaping Ideas | Washington DC

Apr 18, 2014 | Lawns

Your front yard is your home’s calling card. So everything you do to it makes a curbside impression. Here are 3 front yard landscaping ideas that can turn the average yard into a lush and beautiful landscape that you’ll be proud to call home.


Zen Oasis

Design your front yard to inspire peace and tranquility. Add hardscapes for texture, and to reduce maintenance, and a wood, slatted fence for elegance. Select plants that add to the ambiance, while keeping lines clean. Fill in gaps with ornaments. Finally, add some well-established evergreens for height, while keeping shrubs close to the front trimmed and low.


Grand Design

Make use of shrubs and trees to strike a visually-pleasing balance between your sidewalk and your home. Edge your landscaped garden with simple, river rock for a border. Plant arching shrubs like willow and cryptomeria for a wispy effect. Include shrubs that add colors more than green, and change with the seasons. If you’re so inclined, shape shrubs for a grand and graceful look.


Traditional Sophistication

If you are more of a traditionalist, then try out this design to keep your front yard charming and simple. Add yard decor like a wrought iron gate, a shepherd’s hook, and perfectly symmetrical vegetation,all elements that will gives your house a taste of the country. Plant white and red rose bushes, flowering shrubs, and hydrangea for color and class. Finally, consider adding colorful boulders as a border for form and function.

The key to designing your perfect front yard is to imagine what you want it to look like, and make it happen. Don’t be afraid to try new things, plant new flowers, and buy new hardscapes. After all, if one idea doesn’t work, there’s always next year.
