Front Yard Landscaping Ideas

By Botanical Decorators
October 2, 2013

Your front yard gives your visitors a glimpse into the overall design of your landscape and can leave a lasting impression on your guests—if built correctly. Of course, you may not have as much room as you do in the backyard to include larger landscape elements like swimming pools or patio spaces. But there’s still plenty of ways you can make the most of this space with the front yard landscaping ideas we’ve listed below—just keep reading or contact us for a consultation in Maryland, Virginia, or Washington, D.C.

Front Yard Landscaping

When you’re coming up with front yard landscaping ideas, it’s important to consider the primary purpose of your front yard. Essentially, this area is the first place your guests will see and serves as an entry way to your home and landscape. It should create an inviting feeling to welcome your visitors and also represent your landscape as a whole to the neighborhood. To do so, you’ll want to choose landscape features and designs that complement the architecture of your home.

With these things in mind, consider the following front yard landscaping ideas for your Maryland area home:

  • Install a fence or shrubs that can provide privacy screening and give your landscape some definition
  • Add a walkway that leads visitors to your front entrance or guides them around your property
  • Include landscape plantings around the entry way to create visual interest and connect your front doorway to the rest of your landscape design
  • Install flower beds and gardens for seasonal color
  • Include climbing plants in your fence or in an arbor design for an exotic, inviting feeling
  • Add a fountain or small water feature for a special touch
  • Install a front porch or front yard patio space to create a welcoming feeling and provide an extra space to enjoy good weather and entertain guests

Of course, none of these front yard landscaping ideas will be effective without a well-groomed lawn to go with it—so be sure to have routine landscape maintenance done as well!
