A decorative garden is one that focuses on plants that will have the largest visual impact per square foot without any consideration for edible, or in some other way functional plant. A functional garden on the other hand focuses on maximizing the yield per square foot of plants that can be eaten or used in some other productive manner (i.e. Aloe Vera for burns). Finally, a hybrid garden focuses on a cross between these two different concepts. It tries to produce a high yield of useful plants, while at the same time creating visual interest within the garden space.
o Keep in mind the location in which you construct your dream house. Look around the nature and environment. Your front yard needs to be in tandem with the natural landscape. Front yard landscaping should merge fully with the lawn and grounds characteristics.
Having a well-manicured lawn or garden with all the designs elements in place can be achieved by using a landscaper to design your yard. Yes, your backyard can feel like a little piece of paradise, especially for your stressed out soul, if it is abloom with flowers or thriving with healthy plants.
Another very useful idea to keep in mind when building a small garden is that it can be constructed horizontally as well as vertically. For example a wall or fence can easily be turned into a living wall by adding hanging planters or vining plants like grapes, hardy kiwi, or honeysuckle to it.
One similarity when landscaping the front compared with the backyard is that in general it is the simpler designs that work the best. In fact having a simple design is even more essential in the front yard than in the back. Not only will this help to make your house more inviting but it will also keep the cost down - you dont want to be spending a lot of money on landscaping a yard that you will hardly ever use other than to walk to your front door. That said, we dont want to play down the importance of a good front yard design either. Place attractive and colorful items in your front yard, but dont over do it.
