One of the most cost-efficient features you can have in your front yard is outdoor lights. You can easily scour inexpensive and lovely LED lights that can best accentuate your yard’s structure as the sun goes down. Choose from a range of tones, colours and styles and install them around your pathway, garden or flowerbeds. If you want a lighting feature that can be a centrepiece in your lawn, you can opt for elegant lanterns, string lights, hanging rattan pendants or other decorative outdoor lighting features.
Integrate Rock Features
Whether you need a material to border your flowerbeds or want a rustic feature that can break up the space in your bare yard – an aesthetically pleasing rock feature can be an excellent pick for you. Rock features is a simple and natural accent that you can add to your front yard. You can find them in different colours, cuts, shapes and sizes.
Aside from their aesthetic purposes, you can also integrate rock features to make the spillway of your gutters look attractive. Or you can also place them as borders in your walkways. If you are only covering a small surface area, this project will not cost a lot.
Create Climbing Walls for Clematis
If you are scouring for ways to hide an unattractive wall, mailbox or fence, consider creating climbing walls for clematis. With the use of several trellises and some clematis plant, you can have an attractive feature in your yard that hides the areas you don’t want visitors to see. Since the clematis plant has a lot of species, you can conveniently choose the species that can strive well in your area.
Want to make sure that your clematis will grow well? Establish them in cool and moist soil and ensure they receive plenty of sunlight. Once they have established roots, you can expect to have an abundance of flowers that usually comes in attractive colours such as pink, purple, white, indigo and red.
Have Easy to Maintain Evergreens
When you really don’t have the time to garden or don’t have much luck in growing trees, planting evergreens in your front yard can be a great alternative. Since evergreens like junipers require little care and maintenance once they have established roots, you don’t have to spend a lot of time to keep them healthy and beautiful. Besides that, you can also easily sculpt evergreens into various topiary forms so you can add unique visual interest to your front yard.
Plant Ground Covers
Not all properties are blessed with flat and healthy soil. It can be challenging to change the natural structure of the yard, and sometimes, even grass can’t grow in certain areas. For this reason, planting ground covers such as bugleweed, yellow buttons, and star jasmine can be your best option. With the lush greenery and touch of colour from the flowers, you can have a neat and attractive yard that is very easy to maintain.
