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.
Since space is a constraint, you can make the use of curves to make the area look bigger. Curves made in a series of networks make the small space garden look bigger. All you need to do is connect those curves. Parallel curves can also be used and they help to give the impression that the space of the garden is larger than it actually is.
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.
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.
Building a garden is a tremendous amount of fun. By taking the small garden design ideas listed above and making them their own, a person will be able to build a visually interesting and useful garden that will impress all of their friends and family.
