Simple Front Yard Landscaping Ideas Pictures
The little things can make a huge impact and are often an easy day or weekend project. Adding mulch, stone or edging to your front beds gives a finished look with minimal effort.
Fill in grassy areas or empty beds with stone or rock to neaten them up. You’ll have to remove the grass, but this can be done with a square-blade shovel. Stone adds beauty to the front of your home, while pea gravel’s subtle variety in colors and small shape add texture. Decorative concrete items, including birdbaths or statues, fill spaces in your landscape without needing watering, pruning or fertilizing.
Line your walkways with low-growing, colorful annuals or low-growing perennials for a new look. To add texture and year-round color to your front beds, consider edging with a low-growing hedge such as “Morris Midget” Japanese boxwood (Buxus microphylla var. japonica “Morris Midget”). This small hedge plant grows to 8 to 12 inches tall and up to 18 inches wide. It is hardy in USDA zones 5 through 9.
