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.
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.
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.
