Not all homes are blessed to have a front yard because some would merely have a small setback from the road. So if you have one, make good use of it. Have a good landscape design to make it appear stunning and welcoming. Aside from plants and other landscape features, you can also add a pool, a cabana or a pergola- whatever that you have in mind and would fit in your area can be great.
But with the modern trend these days, landscaping also toned down a bit. Instead of placing so many flowering plants and stones on the front yards, it had a minimal approach. We will show you what we are talking about in the pictures below. Scroll down and try to observe how a modern front yard landscape is done.
