It is a visiting card that speaks in colors and shapes, in different accents and textures, about yourself and the love for nature in which we all take refuge sooner or later. To inspire in arranging these small gardens in front of the house, here are some front yard landscape ideas that others put into practice.
Start with the simple, but effective ideas, a basic rule of interior or exterior design. Turn the alley leading to the main entrance in a glamorous path, bordering it with plants that add color and texture to the landscape. Hosta is a good choice, as you can see in the image below.
If space allows, mix business with pleasure and there, right in the middle of that corner of authentic and colorful nature, place a small terrace so you fully enjoy moments of tranquility.
Even a small piece of land in front of the house, especially a sloping one, is an ideal place to give your home a picture full of freshness. Nature goes all the way up to entrance of the house, a communion full of harmony.
