Front Yard Small Space Landscaping
Just because you have a small front yard, doesn’t necessarily mean you get small space landscaping results. When it comes to small space landscaping ideas, there are some elements to choose from. A few small space landscaping tricks make small yards look bigger. A key feature of the front yard is the path that leads to the front door. A walkway that’s at least 4 feet wide allows two people to stroll side by side. A path lined with vegetation is attractive, and one that curves around a bird bath, a tree or even a garden gnome gives a sense of flow. Any design, however, should have meaning, especially in a small yard, and sometimes a straight path works best. The front door is a great focal point in a small yard; enhance the space with a nearby cluster of bright containers and cheerful flowers. Or you can make use of the entire yard by extending the garden to the curb. Dividing a small yard into diverse areas, such as a water feature, elevated plantings, and a segmented patio area for eating and relaxing, adds depth to the space. Also, positioning parts of the garden at a 45-degree angle to the house counterbalances the size of the house in a small yard.
