Glendale Front Yard Landscape Design Call (818) 614-9556
The first part of your home people see is the condition of your front yard. Investing in the design of your front yard landscaping is a great way to increase the value of your property and create outdoor spaces for showing the pride you take in your home ownership. No home can overcome the downsides of a poorly designed front yard.
There are some front yard and garden design ideas that are always useful. For instance, nearly every front yard benefits from utilizing a combination of well-paced trees and flowers. By mixing the two you’ll have both year-round greenery and the freedom to add or remove flowering plants as the seasons change. However, you should also be mindful of your commitment level and your environment when planning a garden. Every plant has specific watering and sunlight needs.
The layout of grass, rocks, and shrubs can also enhance front yards of any size and on any budget. Many people think that to have a picturesque front yard, you need to plan on constant maintenance. It's actually not that difficult to grow a healthy plot of grass. The problem is that most turf is grown on a thin layer of low-quality soil. To establish a healthy, low-maintenance lawn, you need to work from the soil up. High quality, deep soil is a critical step in establishing the perfect lawn.
Adding rocks and stone work helps create a beautiful contrast in your front yard while adding features that require no maintenance or water. Perennial shrubs can also help form magnificent borders for your space while requiring very minimal annual maintenance.
Stone pathways offer another method of enhancing your front yard while adding surface area that does not require water or regular maintenance. Stone pathways also offer a comfortable, functional addition to your home by connecting front doors, porches, sidewalks, and driveways to one another in a visually pleasing way.
A good front yard also has a well-designed irrigation system. We look forward to bringing the best technology, positioning, and design to a sprinkler and irrigation system that will keep your front yard looking perfect all year long. We put a particular emphasis on efficiency of delivering water to your space in the places that need it most.
You can also consider xeriscaping part or all of your front yard design. Xeriscaping adds large portions of yard space that do not require additional water from irrigation but utilize beautiful, complementary plants, stones, and other features to deliver a space you are proud to show off.
