Having a front yard that looks great is one of the easiest ways to improve the curb appeal of your home. Improved curb appeal means a higher resale value and a place that you’re not embarrassed to call home. You’ll be proud to invite friends, family, and neighbors over when you have a home with great curb appeal! Improved landscaping is easier said than done though. With so many landscaping options to choose from, how are you supposed to know what the right choice is? no two landscape designs will be exactly the same but consider incorporating some of these ideas to transform your front yard into a space that you love!
A lot of the plants you may include in your landscape design will only be colorful during the spring and summer months. To keep the front yard looking lively even as the season’s change, opt for plants that hold color all year round. Hydrangeas, magnolias, and verbena plants are some of the most common options. These plants are also very hearty, so you won’t have to worry about accidentally killing them!
While we’re on the topic of hearty plants, let’s talk about the benefits of low-maintenance plants. Plants that require little to no maintenance are easier to keep alive and you won’t have to take time out of your busy schedule for daily watering. Ornamental grasses are one of the best low-maintenance plants you can buy! They’re resistant to heat, drought, and pesky insects.
Pots come in just about any size, shape, and color you can imagine. Potted plants are most commonly used as front porch decoration, but there’s no reason you can’t immerse them in your landscape design. Find a pot that you love, fill it with plants that you love, and put the pot wherever it fits! Adding a potted plant into your flowerbed acts as a decorative and floral addition all at the same time. Try to pair plants that require similar light and water in the same pots for easy maintenance.
Solar landscape lighting is a front yard addition that looks great both during the day and at night. During the day, the lights will be absorbing sunlight and acting as a decorative piece. At night, they illuminate to create something both beautiful and functional! Place landscape lighting along your front walkway up to the front door so you won’t struggle to see where you’re going if you get home after the sunsets.
