Your front yard design is very important. This is the first thing most visitors will see and if you try to sell your home, it will create curb appeal for potential buyers. In addition, the right design will provide a place you will enjoy for years.

When designing a new construction home, you may not spend much time designing the yard. However, once your home is created and you move in, it's time to make that yard look amazing. From planting flowers to adding furniture, there are plenty of things you can do to create a front yard design you will love for years. Here are a few tips to get you started.

Add Local Plants

Depending on how much time you want to spend in your yard, you will want to choose local plants to fit your needs. If you love to garden, choosing higher maintenance plants is a great way to enjoy the hobby. However, if you don't enjoy gardening, choose local plants not requiring you to do much work or watering.

Local plants will often grow better than just choosing anything you find at a garden store. Make sure you know what you are planting and where it needs to go to thrive before you tackle this task.

Unique Furniture

If you have a front patio area, adding a bit of unique furniture can provide both a great look and the opportunity to connect with neighbors. The front patio is the place to show off your unique personality with bright colors or styles for your furniture. It can also become an oasis for relaxation after a long day of work.

Keep it Clutter-Free

After you have the perfect design in place, make sure your patio and yard stays clutter-free. Sometimes, you may feel like going overboard, but less can certainly be more. Make sure you keep the areas from becoming crowded with lawn ornaments, kid’s toys and other items.

Use these tips to get started on your front yard design. If you want to make sure it shines, hire a professional landscaper to add plants, water features and other design items to make it perfect.
