A front yard of any home is a very special space. If you don’t pay enough attention to it, it will reflect in everything that goes around your home as far as landscaping is concerned.
Here are some considerations that can affect the front yard landscaping of any home.
1) Area of the front yard..
This is the most important factor in front yard landscaping. Before dreaming about a beautiful landscape have a look at the available area. There are many things to consider here. First of all since the entry of the house as well as the vehicles such as car of the homeowner is from the front, there are going to be movement in the front. SO have a very clear definition of movement patterns for vehicles as well as humans.
2) Nature of land..
By nature of land I mean is it flat or sloped. If it is a flat land consider about driving away excess rainwater. Are you going to provide rainwater gutters or is it going to be paved with flooring patterns.
If it is sloped land naturally it will require a stepping stone arrangement for human movement. A sloped land has one more advantage. A slope greatly adds to the beauty of the front yard simply because it creates a kind of balancing visual for against the home building.
3) The amount of sunlight it receives..
This is another very important aspect. If the sunlight is too harsh it’s a good idea to plant a tree that will cast a big shadow of its foliage. But again if the area of the front yard is small you will have select a tree position that will not hide the house building itself.
I hope this articles has given you a brief introduction to start thinking about more front yard landscaping considerations to look for.
