Front Yard Landscapes: A Solid Home Investment | Ashburn, VA
When it comes to creating a garden, nothing will improve your home’s value more than front yard landscapes will. As one of the first things people notice about your property, front yard landscaping is not only a reflection of your personality, but also sets the mood for one’s visit to the rest of your home as well.
For a welcoming appeal, consider adding some water features to your front yard landscape. If you have a sprawling front lawn, a garden pond with some accent trees and seating benches can really help highlight this area. For a smaller front yard, you could choose a fountain or waterfall, and then surround it with colorful flowers to help welcome guests to your home.
Hardscaping plays an important part in any front yard landscape. Brick pavers not only make a nice walkway leading up to your home, but can be used to create a footpath that leads to a flagpole as well. Surround this flagpole with some hostas or ornamental grasses, and you have created an interesting focal point that people will notice long before they actually arrive.
Not every front yard is level, but changes in elevation can actually enhance your landscape rather than being a hindrance to it. Consider planting specimens of varying heights and textures in order to give your space visual interest and help draw the eye in. Multi-level gardens also look nice when large boulders or rocks in various colors are used to accent them as well.
You can create a miniature habitat for wildlife by cutting out a circular section in the center of your lawn, and then planting shrubs and trees of various heights in the middle of it. Add some ground cover and then place a few bird feeders there and sit back from your front porch and enjoy watching the animals.
