You may think this one is amazing and it is. They have put the pots in a way that makes it look like two people are sitting and gossiping about their lives. For me, this one is the best.

This one fits perfectly if you are looking for a driveway landscape design or some walkway designs.

But in this case, especially for the flowers I think will suit you. Just build a circular garden and people will get attracted to it.

3. Plant Vegetables in the Yard

This one is simple. Planting vegetables has a minimal effect as they always look messy. However, you can reduce the dirt by wedding the yard on a weekly basis. So that it looks clean.

4. Set Up an Old Tubewell

I know it is hard to get one tubewell or well pump nowadays. But if you have any then set it up in the middle of your yard and people will notice it as it will become an attention grabber for you.

5. Plants on Wheel

6. Use Thuja to Build a Design

Small arborvitae or thuja plants are the best when it comes to decorating it in your own way. All you have to do is to cut the thujas weekly and they will make the small front yard look like heaven.

7. Build an Animal

I like elephants, rabbits, and human faces as my creative design with thuja. You can do the same. Just hire someone who can design that for you.

8. Build a Rocky Yard

I know, this one is not easy to build but it can be done. Just build a center point with rocks and stones and plant around it. You do not have to do the exact replica.

9. Get an Old Age Well Pump Head

Just like the tubewell, the well head will also catch the eyes if you set it in the front area and plant around it some flowers.
