Implement Layers

Even a small front yard can be packed with charming curb appeal. A triple layer of landscaping — two rows of evergreens and a row of colorful annuals — along the front of this home adds dimension and interest. Ivy-filled window boxes and vibrant planters top off the charming look. See the following ideas for adding personality to your small front yard — whether it's steeply sloped, fenced, requires low-maintenance plantings or just needs a fresh new look.

Top Off the Retaining Wall

To lend more privacy to this front yard a small picket fence was added to the top of the brick retaining wall. Twin planters at the top of each set of stairs and a pair of tall skinny evergreens provide symmetry and style.
