While the backyard is for you, the front yard is often made beautiful for neighbors and the public generally.
Gardeners have a real advantage when it comes to making a welcoming home because at least 50% of a home’s curb appeal is the front yard gardens.
Consider this incredible photo gallery of front yard garden ideas. When you look at each photo, imagine the front yards if they didn’t have gardens. I did this and without a doubt the homes simply are not nearly as beautiful as they are with spectacular gardens.
Moreover, beautiful gardens can take a house from drab to fab.
Our aim with this gallery is to provide you MANY front yard garden ideas. The diversity in designs, flowers, plants, trees, cost and other garden features is huge.
In some cases the front yards are loaded with flowers. In other cases small trees and bushes.
No 2 gardens are alike. Your front yard is your canvas.
When planning your front yard garden, put yourself in the shoes of the visitor. Actually walk from the street to your front door. What will make for a beautiful stroll to your door?
And then there’s the view of your front yard from the road. What can you do to really make it pop. One thing that always looks great is a rising front yard so that your front yard is a gradual incline which makes more of your garden visible from the road (I say this because our home has a sloping front yard and our garden looks fabulous from the road).
