Most of us consider the backyard our outdoor relaxation headquarters. We make sure it’s comfortable with great furniture, and it looks nice with beautiful landscaping. While it’s great to have that special outdoor living space in the backyard, it’s important to give some attention to your front lawn as well. That’s the first place people see when they pull up to your house, so it’s a good idea to give it some curb appeal. Here are some ideas for how to go from ordinary to extraordinary in your front lawn.
Make the walkway up to your front door enticing by keeping it neat and pleasant. Line it with flowers for some color, or use a unique flagstone for visual interest. Lighting the walkway adds a nice touch and makes it feel safe, too.
If your front porch is a landing zone for things like newspapers, dirty shoes, and gardening supplies, do your best to keep it clear of the clutter. It’ll instantly have a more appealing look. The same idea goes for garbage bins, hoses, and toys. Keeping those sorts of items out of sight will give the appearance of a neat and organized front lawn.
Adding vibrant plants in attractive planters does a lot to enhance the look of your front lawn. Use colors that complement the exterior of your home. Potted plants can create a mini-oasis for you to enjoy, as well as be an eco-friendly form of decorating. If you’re lacking in floor or ground space, use hanging planters instead.
If you’re fortunate enough to have a spacious front porch area, consider upgrading the look of it by adding furniture. A side table with a couple of chairs would make a lovely place to enjoy your morning coffee and your beautiful front lawn. Wicker furniture adds an especially beautiful and natural feel to your front lawn. Colorful cushions and pillows can add interest, as well.
Improve the look of your front lawn and your relationship with your neighbors by adding a fire pit to your front patio area. You’ll enjoy it all year long as you roast marshmallows in the summer and snuggle up with blankets around a fire in the fall. It will become a great meeting place for you and your neighbors, and it’ll add visible interest to the “sameness” of your front lawn. Surround the fire pit with comfortable outdoor wicker chairs, and your front lawn will not only have wonderful curb appeal, but it’ll also be an enjoyable and relaxing place to spend time.
Solutions for any budget exist for taking your front lawn from ordinary to extraordinary. Simple changes like adding potted plants can instantly improve the look, or you can spend a little more and get some beautiful wicker furniture to make your front lawn as equally relaxing and useful as your backyard area.
