Your front yard is the first thing visitors and potential buyers see, and, more importantly, you see it every day when you come home. Therefore, it should look exactly the way you want it to!
Whether you want to boost the curb appeal and market value of your home or simply aren’t happy with the way your front yard looks, there are a lot of front landscaping ideas that can completely transform your space.
Front Landscaping to Completely Transform You Yard
Making one or all of these aesthetic updates—or talking to a local landscape design company about another idea you may have—can immensely improve your yard.
Landscaping lighting: A small yet impactful solution, outdoor accent lighting can not only enhance your yard aesthetically but also eliminate any dark, shadowy areas at night and prevent any safety hazards.
Retaining wall: Is your yard on a hill? A retaining wall, although often necessary for soil erosion purposes, can be a beautiful addition to any yard and help increase curb appeal.
Visually interesting entryways: There are a lot of little things you can do to spruce up your front entryway. Have an old, dull concrete stoop with cracks? Update to a beautiful stone stoop or porch. Plantings, landscape lighting like lamp posts, and decorative pieces like a small water fountain are good ideas.
Updated driveway and/or walkway: If your driveway is old and outdated or starting to crack, updating it can have a big impact. There are pavers that imitate any stone for driveway landscaping—brick, travertine, limestone, etc. Same goes for any walkway in your yard. A new stone or paver walkway is a great front landscaping idea.
Stairways: Like retaining walls, stairs are ideal for hilly yards. Adding a staircase walkway to your sloped yard is a great way to add curb appeal—and give your visitors easier access to your door. They’ll thank you for it when they don’t need to walk up the hill in your yard!
