Let flowers work their magic, adding color to the landscape and being cute and lovely. But you’ll have to take care of the way they are displayed. Flower beds let you organize the colors more easily and they allow you to come up with all sorts of interesting designs.

There’s something very attractive and beautiful about arches and I’m sure all your guests would find the idea wonderful. Try integrating the arch into the design of your fence. You can also use climbing plants and flowers to give it a more romantic look.

Don’t you just love it when the grass starts to grow between the pathway stones? It gives the yard an organic and natural look. You can take advantage of that and add your own twist to the concept. Try geometric designs and clean and simple patterns.

I love the idea of using river stones when decorating the garden or yard. There are so many lovely things you can create with them. For example, try an artistic approach and use the rocks to give shape to your front yard. Mix them with moss, plants and everything else.

It’s well-known that a water feature can instantly change the whole look of a garden or yard. It doesn’t have to be anything dramatic. For example, a small structure like this one can be a sort of a hybrid between a pond and a planter. You can use water plants and other elements to decorate it with.

Don’t underestimate the important of lighting in the front yard. If you don’t want the usual lamps and lanterns, try something a little more artistic. Light up the pathway in a subtle and minimalist way.

Give your front yard a sculptural look and mix materials and colors in bold ways. A wooden bridge can contrast with a stone or concrete pathway. Also, minimalist planters can maintain a cohesive look throughout.

Sunken planters.

Speaking of minimalism, if raised flower beds aren’t really your style, try something different, like these sunken planters. They’re basically steel rings used to create wells around the trees. The accent lighting gives them a dramatic look.
