10 Creative Front Lawn Landscaping Ideas

There are 100s of front lawn landscaping ideas that I can give you, but I have chosen only those that other people will notice and admire as your front lawn is the first thing they see.

Some ideas will be easy for you to set up and some maybe not so. So choose the one that fits and shines in the sunlight and the eye of your neighbors.

So here we go.

1. Build a Sitting Area with Colorful Flowers

The colorful flowers especially in red will shine from far away and most people in your area will surely ask for it unless they know it is a rose flower.

What I am saying is that plant a few colorful flowers on the front lawn with a few sitting areas if the space is big or you can just set up one single sitting chair and a few potted flowers.

Both will do their job beautifully.

2. Build Something Luxurious

I know you do not have the budget for it or you do not want to spend that much money on your lawn. I understand, but just have a look at this palace and the front view.

I highly recommend you set up something like it in the front yard. Not that heavy in design but a touch of it. Okay! And yes it will be messy work in maintenance.

3. Use Mulch to Build a Design

It is a simple idea that does not need any special work. Just throw some black mulch or grey mulch and plant a few flowers by bordering it with river rocks.

If you have a small front area, then this may suit you.

4. Go with Potted Plants in the Lawn

You can set up some colorful flowers and plants in different types of pots on the front lawn. When they grow up they will block the view and be a focal point.

Just creatively set up each flower in an order.

5. Build a Small Forest in the Lawn

I know this idea is too much work for a beginner and I only recommend you if you know a bit of garden design and have good experience in landscaping.

  • Otherwise, you will get fed up and abandon the design.

Creating this vertical and forest-like look will take years but in the end, the last laugh will be yours.

6. A Simple and Clean Lawn

You do not need anything fancy on the lawn that costs huge money. A simple and clean design like this will be perfect for you.

Just do a weekly cleanup and the lawn will be fine year after year.

8. Use Rocks and Mulch with Plants

It is very simple. Just add some mulch and rock border to the lawn with those small and big plants and you will have this good-looking and low-maintenance landscape design in the front of your house.

9. Remodel Your Driveway with Arborvitae

Arborvitae is commonly used as a privacy fence. You do not need that.

Just add a few of those plants around the driveway on both sides in different shapes and sizes and it will look great from all sides when they grow up.

10. A Simple Rocky Lawn

I know this one is messy but with those red and pink flowers, it does look good. Build a pathway, add some small stones along with it, and then plant those colorful flowers.
