Key Principles of Effective Front Yard Landscaping

HomeBlogKey Principles of Effective Front Yard Landscaping

We at NatEv Life, LLC, have extensive experience in the landscaping business. Over the years, we have worked on countless projects, including both front and back yards. Most Americans treat their back yards as private outdoor living areas and their front yards as part of the public face of their home, so the two types of landscaping require different approaches. In this article, we will go over a few of the key principles we use to make our front yard landscaping projects successful.

Key Principles of Effective Front Yard Landscaping

  • Access – When approaching a front yard landscaping project, our team keeps accessibility in mind. No matter what changes we may make to your front yard, we will make sure you can safely and easily get to and from your driveway to your front door. To do this, we may install pavers or concrete paths to ease the way in between these points.
  • Unity – Another key principle of good front yard landscaping, and good landscaping in general, is unity. To put it simply, this principle requires all the elements in a design—in this case, the various plants, paving materials, etc.—to work together. Our team knows how to select combinations of grasses, flowers, shrubs, trees, and other greenery, as well as paving materials and other accents, to create a harmonious design.
  • Balance – A third key principle of effective front yard landscaping is balance. The elements of the design should have equal visual “weight” across both sides of your yard, instead of having a lot of interest on one side and little on the other. This doesn’t mean the landscape needs to be perfectly symmetrical, but it does mean both sides need to feel even.
