Because you are going to be designing the front landscape around accessibility, the first thing you should decide on is where your paths and driveway are going to go. In many cases this may already be decided for you depending on where your garage is. Once you know where these important parts of the front yard are then you need to create a landscaping design around them.
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.
Most planning and design consultants advice homeowners seeing to enhance the look of their backyard to bear in mind that soil improvement is crucial. When embarking on a do-it-yourself garden enhancement project, you can improve the quality of your soil through composting. Some budget-conscious homeowners choose to preserve the plants, trees and some hardscapes they already have, and handle the planting of small shrubs or flowering plants.
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.
But only trees and the size of the garden are not enough. Textures can also play a big part in expanding the size of a small garden. Though you can choose your own texture, you may also use brick for the patio area, natural stone for the walking area and a crushed rock that contrasts with the surroundings for the rest of the area.
