Whether you simply want to give your home a new look, or you want to add value to your property, a garden landscaping project is one of the best places to start.
First appearances are everything, therefore it makes sense to focus your gardening energies towards the front of your home.
If you're a bit stuck for ideas, why not take a drive around your area and have a look at some other front yards? Then try look at your own through the eyes of an onlooker - giving yourself a different perspective on how you can improve its appearance.
While planting some trees, shrubs and flowers may seem like an easy fix, it is important to sit down and put a bit of thought into placement, plant heights and colours - this will help you avoid having a garden that looks mismatched.
It may also be worthwhile to extend your garden project to include the facade of your home.
This may include giving your front door and porch a fresh coat of paint, or buying a new letterbox.
With a bit of pre-thought, landscaping can be a smart investment, boosting your property's appearance that will not only bring you enjoyment, but enhance its resale value.
