Simple Front Yard Landscaping Projects

Categories: Front Yard Landscaping, Landscape Design | March 8, 2018

Simple front yard landscaping projects are perfect for homeowners who want to add curb appeal to their home but do not have the luxury of spending hours in their garden. At Vandenberg’s Landscape Design, we want to help homeowners create beautiful front yard landscaping. That is why we offer a wide range of landscaping services including landscape design.

1. Cottage-Style Planted Wheelbarrow

Cottage-style planted wheelbarrows add a shabby chic design element that is perfect for almost any type of front yard landscaping but is especially well-suited for cottage gardens. While many types of flowers could be used in this kind of display, consider using petunias, fuchsias, or other hanging basket favourites to create a pretty effect as the flowers spill over the sides of the wheelbarrow.

2. Potted Border

For gardeners who are too busy to keep borders looking their best, try creating a border out of potted plants. While this landscaping trick is especially useful for bulbs, you can also consider buying potted flowers, shrubs, or creeping groundcovers and swapping them out for new plants as the seasons change.

3. Succulent Stone Planters

Succulent plant displays are modern, yet rustic, and extremely easy to care for as the plants require little water of maintenance. Consider using a variety of different colours, textures, and succulents in order to create a better level of dimension to your garden. While succulent planters can be used in almost any climate, it is important to bring plants inside during the cold or wet months.

4. Clematis Climbing Wall

If you are looking to hide an unappealing wall or fence, consider putting up trellises for clematis. Clematis is a beautiful floral plant that comes in a wide variety of different colours and shapes. For the best display of flowers in summer months, make sure to plant the clematis in cool, moist soil and that it gets plenty of sunlight.
