Modern Front Yard Landscaping Ideas


A landscaping idea for the front yard should meet different goals. Choose a landscape that enhances your home's exterior and encourages visitors to walk up to the front door. Effective landscaping makes your home look even more appealing from the road.

Rock Planter Centerpiece

  • A rock planter with vegetation can decorate a large expanse of grass in the front yard. Choose a uniform shape, such as an oval or rectangle or a free-form design. Decide whether the combination of plants will mask the view of the home from the curb.

Flower Gardens

  • Some landscaped yards emphasize the different colors of carefully-arranged flower gardens. You can skip bushes and shrubs and choose flower gardens with geometric designs. Ornate flower beds will make a home with a one-color paint scheme look more distinct.

Front Paths

  • Not all homes are situated on city-style or planned community lots where driveways and homes are situated in patterns. Rural and estate lots can include a large area in the front, and parking can be elsewhere, like a detached garage to the side or back of the home. Create a landscaping plan around both sides of a front path that ends at a home obscured from the road by trees, planters and gardens.
