May 13, 2022
Summer is the best season to start thinking about the changes you need to make to your front yard landscape design.
During the winter months, there is not much landscaping going on, as the front and backyard are often covered with snow. But these months can be used to plan your landscaping design for the warmer months.
The front yard of your house is the main part of your house as it plays a major role in increasing or decreasing your house’s curb value.
A well-maintained front yard will add value to your property whereas a not so well maintained front yard will decrease your properties value.
Beautiful landscape designs are the best way to maintain the front yard of your property as they add colour and aesthetics to your property. So if you need to add value to your house hire a professional landscaping company and get your front yard landscape changed.
If you are planning to change the landscape of your front yard, then keep on reading, as in this blog post we will outline some of the design tips that you should consider when designing the landscape of your front yard.
There is a primary focal point of every well-landscaped yard. The focal or the main point is the part of your yard that will be given the most attention.
The majority of homeowners choose their front doors as their main focal point, as it is the first thing that grabs people’s attention. Whatever your main point is, a certified landscape contractor will make sure that it grabs the attention of anyone entering your property.
An important part of front yard landscaping is making a walkway or path. It can either be from the sidewalk to your front door or from the driveway to your front door.
As humans we often like to take the most direct route to where we would like to go. So by adding paths to your front yard landscape you will give direction to anyone entering your home.
Most people go for winding walkways as they look very nice and fancy but they’re not really practical as they take up a lot of extra space. So if you want to add a walkway to your front yard try to keep it as simple and direct as possible.
Depending upon the direction your house faces, you might have a lot of natural light that comes into your home at some point during the day.
So when doing your landscaping you should consider what you are planting and see if it will be blocking any of the natural light coming into your home.
Also on the other hand you may want to purposely create some shade for your house if it is in direct sun for a large part of the day. The additional shade will also help you with your utility cost as it will keep your house cooler in the summer.
Moreover, you can also add landscape lighting to highlight the shrubs and trees of your front yard during the night.
