A well manicured front yard helps to frame your home and prefaces the interior and family inside, providing an initial welcome. A well thought out and organised front yard design and landscaping should compliment the natural terrain of the land and enhance the general theme of the home. When designing your front yard landscaping, it is best to consider the amount of work and effort you are willing to invest into it to maintain the surroundings.
When choosing and setting out plants in the front yard or any landscaping for that matter, you need to consider more than just how things will look. You should also consider other factors such as sun or shade, duration of sun or shade, soil type, purpose, the elements, and what specific plants will require or do in the future. There are also a few other considerations such as how close to plant to the home and its foundation.
