If you have a small front yard, you may feel like you don’t have much to work with. If you landscape the right way, it can still look just as great as a large yard. Realty Times has come up with a few great ideas to improve the look and feel of your small yard.
Use a symmetrical approach
When landscaping your yard, try to make it as symmetrical as possible. Putting bushes or trees on either side of your sidewalk will make your yard look balanced and inviting. The landscaping will cost significantly less than it would if you had a large yard!
Plant a colorful tree or plant somewhere in your yard. This will serve as an eye-catching focal point for your yard.
Hang flower baskets
Hanging flower baskets on your porch will add to the curb appeal of your home. Having the plants up high will keep your porch uncluttered. You could also change out the plants for different seasons.
You don’t want your home to only look appealing during the day. Adding lights will make it look great at night as well. You can hang lanterns on your porch, add lighting along your sidewalk, or use spotlights for your trees. The possibilities are endless!
Paint your front door
Your door may not technically be a part of your yard, but it definitely plays a huge part in you home’s curb appeal. Choose a color that will stand out and compliment the rest of your home at the same time. Even if you don’t want to change up the color of your door, paint it again to make it look fresh and cover up any cracks or other flaws.
