When landscaping your front yard think carefully about whether you really need lots of different sections or whether a simple lawn and subtle flower choices would be better. In most cases this is all you really need as any more can seem cluttered and not appealing to anyone who is visiting the house. Leave the extravagant plants and curves to your backyard and just focus on creating an understated design instead. Try to design a front yard that you would be attracted too should you see it at someone elses house. In many ways front yard landscape design is much easier than backyard, but you still should put some time and though into it.
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 While designing the front yard, make sure that green plain lawns are a part of it. Neatly designed pathways will improve the view of the landscape. There can be two three small areas where flowered plants grow. Soft sands can be used to bring good look for the pathways in the front yard.
Landscape design cannot be described in a few simple terms. There are several different landscape design architecture jobs that one can choose to focus on: Land Development, Site Planning, Urban/Town Planning, Regional Landscape Planning, Park and Recreation Planning, Land Development Planning, Ecological Planning and Development, Historical Preservation and Reclamation, and Social and Behavioral Aspects to Landscape Planning. With the scope of the profession so broad and the projects so varied, landscape architecture is sure to encompass any aspect of landscape design.
In general when you are landscaping a front yard you will have to use different principles and plant selection than you would in the backyard. This is because you are designing for a different purpose for the two different yards. The back garden is very much a place of solitude where you can relax and enjoy yourself in a personal space. In the front you are trying to create an inviting atmosphere, and one through which people can easily access your house. Because of this you will have to think slightly differently when creating your landscape design.
