Lush Landscaping Ideas for Your Front Yard

The front yard is your home's calling card. Make a huge street-side impression with the right plants, flowers and landscaping.

Fairy-Tale Effect

A whimsical design, a white picket fence and a sweet and well-manicured lawn design make this front yard seem straight out of a children's book. Pretty pinks and purples coordinate perfectly with the colorful home.

Woodsy Retreat

When working with a house as beautiful and detailed as the home shown here, the landscaping can be as simple or as ornate as you like. Evergreens are a good choice for year-round landscaping. Design by HGTV fan babycates

Potted Up

Incorporate containers in your front yard landscape so you can easily change your plants as the seasons progress. Buy seasonal plants when the time comes and enjoy them without having to plant months in advance. Design by Virginia Rockwell

The neutral color of this Spanish-style home makes a perfect backdrop to a yard full of colorful flowers. Bright colors pop in flower beds and window boxes against the home's facade.

Small Spaces

With very little front yard to work with, the owners of this well-decorated home opted to show off their green thumbs with large window boxes. By allowing the multicolored flowers to drape low along the house, they really take advantage of every available space. Design by HGTV fan kmphelps
