Landscaping help for front of house
Hi, My DH and I purchased this little house last spring. I spent most of the summer working on the backyard. (cutting down about 1000 old trees and shrubs that were just randomly scattered throughout the yard) What a mess! lol
This year I want to get the curb appeal thing going. My yard is pie shaped with only about 25 feet across the front and spreading out to about 120 across the back.
I just can't seem to figure out what to do with the front though. I want something on the right side of the sidewalk as well as the left of course. Running up the left edge from the street to the house we have planted 6 ft. cedars to divide my property from the neighbours as well as provide some privacy from a yard that is always full of toys and gets mowed maybe twice a year. The left side I'm not so worried about as the neighbours are great and I think it would make my front yard look even smaller if there was a distinct line of division.
There is a small flower bed running along the front of the deck but I would like something to really stand out and dress up the yard.
We plan on residing the home a light color, maybe yellow or light beige as well as building a new porch roof with stronger looking pillars.
Any suggestions are very welcome as I've searched this sight and the net for months and can't find any examples of a yard like this.
