Front yard: Beginners guide

Front yard, if you ever thought of designing your own front yard landscaping was out of the question, think again. Even if you don’t have a lot of money or time, you can still make your house look like a million bucks from the street.

You’ve heard it before: First impressions are everything. People are more likely to stop and take notice of your home’s curb appeal if there is a little ‘wow’ factor to it when they first see it. As soon as they see your home, friends, family, and even potential homebuyers will be eager to get a closer look.

If you’re looking to give your front yard a professional makeover at a low cost, this guide will show you how.

Front yard tip#1:

There is no better place to begin than at your front door. A little sprucing up will make it the star of your front yard. Use an unusual material, add color, or match the style of your home’s decor. Keep metal doorknobs or other features shiny and clean to entice any scavengers who might be passing through.


Front yard tip #2: Garden love

Think of your garden‘s color scheme like fashion or art, and apply a tried-and-true one for a big impact. It’s best to use complementary colors like purple and yellow, monochromatic (mixing similar colors) like purple and lilac, and analogous coloration to make your flowering plants stand out.


Front yard tip #3: Plants

Overgrown plants, as well as those that appear unhealthy or ill, can detract from the appearance of your home’s exterior. There are many things that can be done to improve the appearance of your garden, and this is one of the most common. Make a list of what you don’t like and get rid of the items that don’t fit. Trim shrubs that obstruct walkways and doorways for easy victories.


 Lastly… show Us Your Stats!

You should check to see that your street number isn’t obscured by plants. The sign should be visible, easy to read, and in an ideal location. Letterboxes are also a great way to add a little flair to your home and make a strong first impression. Choose one that is more representative of your personality, and make sure it complements the color and style of your front fence.
