It has been said that the front porch is a thing of the past. With the fast pace of life nowadays, it is a sad reality that few people can find time to relax on their front porch or lawn. Even fewer homeowners can find the time or money to invest in creating a welcoming front yard, though many would love to. The front yard is the very first impression guests garner from a home, and homeowners strive to exceed expectations. Luckily, you can create a breathtakingly beautiful, welcoming front yard without spending much money or time at all.

Generally, the more colors in your front yard, the more warm and welcoming it feels. Try planting colorful perennials along the front of your house. They will be a beautiful and cost-worthy addition to your garden, as they will grow back every spring for a number of years. Try installing flowerboxes underneath your windows to add an extra flare. They are sure to grab the attention of passersby who notice your exceptional and beautiful home apart from the others. Another tip is to re-paint your front door. A bright, fun color will attract the right kind of attention, as long as the color works well with the color of your house. And speaking of the front door, adding some sort of walkway leading to it can make a tremendous difference in the curb appeal of your home.

Whether you plant small trees along the walkway or add stones or plants, your guests will feel both welcomed and impressed.  All homeowners wish to present a front yard that reflects the unique beauty of the inside of their home, as well as their desire to warmly greet their guests. With these new simple tricks and tips, you can have the front yard you have always wanted, all while saving time and money.
