The image of a sprawling lawn is one that is often seen a as a simple fact of life in suburbia. Unfortunately, the truth is not so glamorous. In fact, most homeowners have to make do with quite small front yards. Here are two suggestions on how to make the best of this particular situation:
Lay Patterns on the Walk – A focal point is always a great way to distract from an otherwise mundane space. Installing a patterned walkway of stepping-stones or just a nice brick pathway is an excellent way to add some flavor to the space without adding a lot of cost to the process.
Go Vertical – Even the smallest of gardens can be significantly expanded by the judicious use of the third dimension – that is, height. Instead of simply laying in monkey grass of other low profile plants, try adding some bushes and tall-growing glasses to add another element to the equation. The result may surprise you.
