Front Yard Landscaping for that WOW Factor
Front yard landscaping can make a strong first impression, and we all know that first impressions count. Whether your preference is privacy with no view of the house from the road, minimalist plantings, or riotous color, we can help you with amazing front yard landscaping. At Dragonfly Landscape Design, we combine the art and science of plants with sustainable practices and collaborative design to create front yard landscapes that will enhance your personal style, complement your home’s exterior, and blend elements of your landscaping with your hardscaping to create a unified whole.
Beautiful walkways and pathways enhance curb appeal, create a safe and inviting entrance to your front door, and offer traffic control to colorful garden areas or adjacent structures. No matter what your preferences, hardscaping can add texture and interesting boundaries in your front yard landscape design. Garden beds not only provide visual appeal, they also soften the hard edges of architectural elements of your home and the hard surfaces on walkways and driveways. Lush green foliage adds a variety of textures while trees and shrubs add depth, height, and scale. If you plant aromatic flowers and plants, they will add wonderful scents to your landscape and invite beautiful birds and butterflies to your garden areas. ...a lot to take in at first glance, but collectively creating a great first impression.
Hug your House
Foundation plantings are house-hugging plants that should complement your home. The idea is simple: Foundation plants should enhance your home, make it more welcoming, and tie it to the surrounding landscape. At Dragonfly Landscape Design we don’t always follow the rules, but our front yard foundation planting does typically follow these guidelines:
- Work with the architecture and overall style of your house - Preserve views of key architectural features and avoid cutting off light to windows
- Plant tall trees to frame the corners of the home - This will soften the hard edge of the house while keeping you focused on the face of the house (corner trees also extend a small house, making it appear larger)
- Frame the front door to the house - This is your grand entrance!
- Bridge the gap between the entryway and framing pieces - The remaining foundation shrubbery should bridge and fill the gaps between the focal pieces, while working in harmony with your home and hardscaping
- Remember good garden design - Plan to vary color (even with evergreens) and play with texture and shape
Our talented design team will incorporate these elements (and more) in your landscape design, ensuring that your front yard landscaping, backyard landscaping, and overall garden design work in harmony!
