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.
First, a person needs to consider what the purpose of the garden is: Decorative, functional, or a hybrid.
Still in the outlining stages, get a walk around your surrounding and look in to what other folks have done with their small garden. Go to a historic space of row houses and see what types of gardens those folk have built. You do not have to be a copycat but beautiful gardens in other small spaces can be an inspiration.
Break up the current soil in your garden and add bagged or compost garden soil. The earlier you start, the better, so you can get to work on this part the assignment in the winter or fall.
Using a landscaper to design your yard can definitely up your propertys value. Most landscape professionals have a keen eye, and can ensure that various elements come together nicely or harmonize with your homes dominant architectural style. For example, a landscape expert may opt to use free-form landscape to provide visually appealing contrast to a symmetrical house facade. A professional landscaper also will not just plop down on the ground decorative hardscapes like boulders and rocks without consideration of the landscape topography and direction.
