When it comes to landscaping, many of us make the mistake of focusing almost exclusively on the back yard. After all, this is the side that has the privacy, that usually offers more space, and that is nowhere near to a road.
But landscaping is just as important around the front. In fact, it is arguably even more important as it allows you to make the most of the smaller space. It can improve your curb appeal too, meaning that passer’s by will think more of your home. That sets the best first impression when someone comes to visit, and it’s a HUGE deal when you eventually want to sell.
Omaha Front Yard Landscaping Ideas
With all that in mind then, here are some great Omaha front yard landscaping idea.
Floral Borders and Window Boxes
Floral borders are rows of plants and flowers placed around the perimeter of your home. These work excellently to add color and interest to your front garden, without relying on a fence or wall – great if your front yard is very open. They also draw attention to your home in a pleasant way, and even prevent people from coming too close to your windows!
Seating for Omaha Front Yard Landscaping Ideas
The front yard can be a great place to sit and relax as you watch the world go by. There are lots of options for front yard seating, whether you want a terrace with a hanging seat of some kind, or you just want to place a bench against the wall. Either way, this adds utility and aesthetics to a space that might otherwise be under-utilized.
A water feature can bring movement and life to your front garden, and is something you rarely see. That fact alone can make it a really great addition to your front drive that is bound to get some positive comments!
Whether you use patio lights powered by solar energy, or you use a few spotlights to highlight a particularly impressive plant… adding lighting can help to create a sense of depth and atmosphere to your front yard. Use smaller lights rather than a single large light and you can that way introduce contrast and areas of complete dark. Your features will almost appear to float in the darkness, making the walk up to your home quite magical!
And this works absolute wonders when combined with the three options above. How about a shimmering fountain? Or a seat surrounded by fairy lights?
