The entrance of the house speaks volumes about the design and the sense of style of the house owner. The walkway to the house must be highly impressive but at the same time, it should be simple and attractive. There are several front yard landscaping ideas that one can opt for like the traditional look, in which, a white picket fence is used as the boundary of the house and the paving material can be of stone or bricks, which will lend a polished look to the house. Plants which have a structured look go well with this colonial setting.
Rhododendron is a good choice as it gives structure and substance both. A stone waterfall placed near the entry of the house can also be a good option for front yard. For a rustic look, the entrance must have dense fruit plantations on each side, which give a country essence to the yard. At the front, classic picket fence can be used. Country style is informal so the pathways should be of gravel and cobblestone. To achieve the minimalist look which does not require mowing. There can be a lawn of gravel, with little plantations and shrubs with a simple concrete pathway will give a simple yet elegant look to the yard.
Laced with the beauty of nature the house opens to the soothing view of the garden. The purple wild flowers maintain the calmness of the environment around and small lampposts illuminates the power of nature by night.
The desert look gives a very ethnic look. With tall coconut trees casting their thin shadows in the front yard, one starts to get the feel of a real desert with cactus plants playing with oneâ€™s imagination.
