Front landscape design should not focus on a single plant or design scheme. Instead, you should look to design your landscape so that all the different parts work together. You can do this by using balance, scale and variety. Introduce an element of visual emotion in all areas of your landscape design.
If you have a long way from the street to the door, with an effective front landscape design you can take advantage of this feature. For example, you can plant trees on either side to create a canopy on the walkway. You can also align the path with potted plants. Containerized plants are much easier to rearrange than plants on the ground, providing you with the flexibility to change landscaping design as the mood suits you best.
Create a different mood for a walkway through a backyard garden through the choice of paving materials and the way they are presented. A cobblestone path creates a sense of old-fashioned intimacy. A path that winds through your garden can lend you a sense of mystery in which you never know what kind of gardening function you are going to see next. You can also consider painting or dyeing your way stones to complement the colors of your front landscape design.
