HGTV Dream Home 2009: Front Yard Pictures

Traditional farmhouse features, oversized light fixtures and period-appropriate plantings make the front yard and porch pop.

Bloom Basics

Plantings in the front yard as well as the fescue grass were chosen for their tolerance to both shade and drought. Foundation plantings include rhododendrons, spring-blooming Daphne, hydrangeas, Breath of Heaven and Japanese anemone. The bed that greets passersby mirrors the foundation beds and includes pyrus, grasses, flowering tobacco, sage and pansies.
