Landscape Front of House IDEAS
If you like a low-maintenance yard, with as little weed pulling, watering, and pruning as possible, this design might be exactly your speed. Small cone-shaped topiaries rest on either side of the steps to the front porch, and small bushes line the railings, while not getting large enough to obscure the railings of the porch. The result is a simple, yet elegantly landscaped home.
2. Grass Walkway with Thick Planting Beds
In the absence of a formal walkway, this yard invites guests to step right on your lawn. On either side of the narrow grass path to the front porch are large planting beds filled with bright red flowers, thick bushes, and a few small accent pieces that include a lantern on a shepherd’s crook and a Roman-style statue. The addition of hanging baskets brings color upwards, balancing the front of the home nicely.
3. Brick Path with Hedge Edging
A simple landscaping solution for homes with shaded front yards. A brick pathway leads directly up to the front door, lined by manicured hedges that encircle each side of the yard. Closer to the front door are large shade trees and a few smaller bushes, including roses.
4. Lighted Front Walk With Manicured Bushes
A lovely contemporary home with a large yard landscaped with large swaths of raised planting beds and edged neatly. The home’s landscaping is unique, due to the choices to add lighting to the bushes nearest to the front walkway, lighting the home at night. The landscaping consists of mainly small, trimmed bushes and several large trees.
5. Simple Landscaping In Green and White
This simple, yet elegant landscaping consists of mainly manicured topiary, hedges, and bushes, with the addition of a single tall birch tree near the left corner of the home and three flowering bushes leading up to the front of the home. On the right is an ornamental Japanese Maple, walled off by an L-shaped low hedge wall in place of edging.
6. Climbing Vines and Potted Grasses
The bright and sunny front door and arch of the porch is utterly overgrown with thick ivy in a bright, summery green that matches the grass and the day lilies in the planting bed to the right. The addition of two potted plants near the front of the walk, window boxes filled with perennials, and a hanging basket add color to the unusual landscaping.
7. Simple Round Bushes and Expansive Lawn
This lovely, spacious home is another example of how simple landscaping can look just as fantastic as a glorious garden filled with exotic and native flowers. This particular home features a wealth of small, neatly manicured bushes following the front walkway, with a pair of young trees appearing to frame the home in this image.
8. Stone Edged Planting Beds with Topiary
A stately home with interesting architecture really only needs a bit of landscaping to enhance the curb appeal, which is why this home features large hedges, topiaries, and neat stone edging. A central display features a circular hedge with a sphere inside, edged by large rocks. A pair of potted plants on the steps add a bit of dimension to the design as well.
9. Eclectic Cottage-Style Garden With Rustic Fence
A quaint cottage-style front yard with a rustic wooden fence, planters on the tiered steps, and a wide variety of densely-planted flowers, including both native flowers and exotic varieties. The design also includes a few ferns and ornamental trees. The result is a quaint, colorful front garden and no lawn to mow!
