- First, carefully plan the path to the entrance to the house and the entrance to the garage
Planning correctly often means doing half the work. Because with the right design, you get a clear idea of what your front yard will look like and what you could still position there. The two ways – this to the house entrance and the garage are crucial for the overall picture of the front garden. The rule says that the way to the house should be wide enough so that two people can easily walk next to each other. Besides its width, its shape is also important. It looks boring when the main road to the house is a straight line. Add some dynamism to your garden design and plan this path curving or slightly arched. Later, you can emphasize its special shape through beautiful flowerbeds. If you have a rough terrain in front of the house, you can plan a few treads right at the planning stage, these facilitate access to the main house and look very fancy in the front yard.
The path to the garage often runs through the front yard. This must rather run straight, if possible on a smooth terrain. Underneath you can lay the water, gas and power lines. But there is caution, because you have to plan in advance everything in the smallest detail and photographed when laying the cable and tube, so you can later easily locate the line if necessary. Of course, the most suitable materials for the design of these paths are weather-resistant and easy-care coverings such as paving, natural stone slabs, gravel, concrete slabs and clinker. Depending on your climatic conditions, you can choose the best product for you. Think about the lighting in the front garden phase, as it is particularly important at the main entrance and at the entrance to the garage. A well-lit path in the evening also guarantees you safety when walking or driving.
- Traditional garden design meets simplicity
After creating the paths, you do not usually have much free space in the front yard, where you can develop your creativity and individuality. In the front garden, you can see traditionally magnificent flower islands, where beautiful fragrant garden flowers show their flowers for months and attract all eyes. Between lush greenery and on the edge of the lawn, evergreen garden plants and shrubs grow; in raised beds, tubs or other containers, or directly in the ground, you can care for perennials and other garden beauties, including roses, geraniums, hydrangeas and many others, each seasonally your front yard decorate and fill it with a deceptive scent. Apart from this traditional front garden design, the simply designed front garden is gaining in popularity. Concrete slabs, clear shapes and straight lines make up the minimalist front garden. A water fountain and some green characterize this in the Japanese style. In other words, depending on your wishes and personal preferences, you can design your front garden area and give it a lot of charm and individuality.
