Instead of the plants shown here, you can use any plant that best suits your climate, such as a tree, shrub, or even a plant from your backyard garden.
Remember that the best way to mimic this garden design in front gardens is to keep the planting sparse and the lines clean. This gives your yard a tidier, more appealing look and allows you to bring light to the edge of your driveway to guide guests to your door. Solar lights are available in most garden houses and shops, and with a small boxwood bush, provide an immediate effect on the curbs around your home.
An extended terrace area in front of the house can be used as a sitting area and provides an attractive backdrop for outdoor events such as picnics, family celebrations, or weddings. A pink covered gazebo can also be a great addition to your front yard, as well as an ideal location for a flower garden.
Plant a garden that you can enjoy from the street or the yard, and allow your neighbors to move from one view over the fence to the next as they walk in the morning.
The richly illustrated text contains photos of various front gardens from all over the world. Each is photographed in such a way that the viewer has a clear view of the seasonal changes that affect the appearance of your entrance.
Cut the grass entirely and place the flower edge with a large plant in the middle or line up everything. Another idea is to include many circular flower beds in the design, like the one in front of my house.
To keep the planting attractive and straightforward, treat the planting with similar craftsmanship. Opposite me is a craftsman's bungalow, whose sloping roof is accentuated by a perfectly straight walkway.
Finally, just a few blocks away is a formal landscape with a picket fence draped with roses. Across the street, a curved bed of wildflowers is in a small garden with a narrow path to the front yard.
Each of the four front gardens has a small lawn, and each garden is designed to suit its location in the community, from the porch to the backyard, with different flower beds. Some raised beds frame the gardens for a neat look that can ward off complaints from lawn lovers. The community homeowners association limits the amount of non-lawn space it allows in front gardens.
