Every front lawn should have a focal point. When coming up to the front door think about what your focal point should be, and make sure to enhance it. Weather it’s a gorgeous old birch tree or a beautiful fountain, consider framing it with a circle of flowers and some outdoor spot lights for night time. Having a nice focal point can make or break your home’s front landscaping, so make sure to get it right!

Plant Flower Ground Covers

If you are looking for low maintenance plants to plant around your front yard trees or garden bed borders, consider planting ground covers. Ground covers are low-lying flowers that do not need much sunlight or water. They are perfect for covering up dried up flowers and leaves. Consider planting Tulips for every ground cover flower you plant, and then watch your tulips bloom inbetween them in the spring. Once summer rolls around and your tulips dry up, your groundcover flowers with seamlessly cover up the dried debris.
