Your front yard is the first part of your home that friends, family and neighbors see—so you naturally want it to be a tasteful reflection of who you are! Fortunately for those who love to add a fun, personal flair to every part of their home, the front yard is a blank canvas for your sense of design to shine through. In today’s blog, we’re taking a look at six fun décor ideas to consider for your own front yard.
Elements of moving water add a unique flair to every space they are placed in. Not only are they interesting to look at and observe—they add a tranquil, relaxing quality that you, your family and friends will appreciate every time you step outdoors. You can add an element of moving water to your front yard in many ways—classics like a birdbath or fountain are just a few such examples, and they don’t need to be big to make a big impact!
Cozy sitting area
If you have spare space on your front porch, consider creating a cozy sitting area. You can use a porch swing or, for a more grounded approach, a pair of café chairs and a small table. This can be a spot where you enjoy your morning coffee or chat with friends—it’s uniquely yours.
Not every family needs the extra lawn space that a large front yard can offer. If you would prefer to make a bold visual statement, consider covering your lawn with beautiful floral arrangements and other landscaping features. You’ll be sure to “wow” friends and neighbors as they walk by, as your lawn will be one of the most innovative on the block.
Vintage feature such as an old-fashioned wagon, bicycle and other finds can find a home on your front lawn and add a fun, whimsical touch. Some items can even serve as planters for your favorite flowers!
Create a special experience for everyone who walks up to your front door by lining their path with beautiful flowers or shrubbery. You can follow the same idea with a path to your backyard—simply use stepping stones to create an easy path for guests to follow!
