Published at Thursday, 17 May 2018. Front Yard. By Lelia Case.
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.
The first American professional landscape architect Frederick Law Olmstead Sr. was responsible for construction of the new Central Park (NY) in 1857. The project was resumed after the Civil War along with new ones in Brooklyn, N.Y.; New Britain, Connecticut; San Francisco, California; Chicago, Illinois and across America. With the success of these ventures and the growing popularity of constructed park cemeteries, the landscape gardener was beginning to be referred to as a landscape architect. Schools and colleges across the country pitched in, offering professional degrees in landscape architecture to budding landscape architects. Landscape architecture is now recognized by the International Labor Organization and is represented by the International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA).
Those are all good reasons to desire a small garden space, but designing one for those applications can be tricky. It takes forethought and careful planning to make a garden of this type really work.
