While it is vitally important that the size and height of the retaining walls are in balance with the house and garden, it is equally important that the plantings don't overpower the hardscape.The precise plantings in this terraced front garden
The three-dimensional design of this front garden almost has its roots in the paintings of the 20th-century artist Mondrian. Its strong geometric-shape raised beds of differing heights are reinforced by the width of the retaining walls. All is softened, though, by the beautifully executed and understated

Create Visual Delight With PatternsSometimes squares can be used just for the delight of the patterns they can make. Here buff-colored pavers separated by strips of turf make a practical yet stunning statement in this front garden.

Cottage Garden with Curb Appeal
Goodbye to grass! A colorful palette of long-blooming perennials, shrub roses and ornamental grasses create a charming front yard cottage garden, brimming with curb appeal.
I have a small front yard with overgrown bed that need to be removed and grass in the rest of the yard. How difficult/costly would it be to pave the walk way, remove the grass and existing plants and install this garden look?
paver costs and attend seminars on installation. A front walk is used a lot, so careful installation is important. This is a look that can be adapted to your taste and budget- it's a matter of material selection and plant sizes. Our client loves to garden and so we left some areas bare for her to fill

"The circular seating area links a large side yard with the equally large front yard, giving both a raison d'etre. The rounded "carpet" of crushed stone has some nice detailing, including the block edging and the flagstone path that cuts through it. Not too casual; not too formal. Definitely inviting

This side yard treatment is both attractive and neighbor friendly

This front garden captures the essence and repetition of the allée but in an updated way that is within the realm of possibility for many. The designer has employed the concept of asymmetrical balance; one garden bed is larger than the other but is weighted to
If you are not confident in your ability to lay out bed lines that seem to flow effortlessly across your hardscape, consider employing the use of a garden hose.

Front Porch Makeover Summer 2010
Who helped you design the garden? It s beautiful. Is it all sunny perennials?

R'Mel - it appears random, but gardens like this need more attention than the "orderly" ones. As someone who has tried (mostly unsuccessfully) to create such ordered chaos, I assure you there is nothing random about the plant placement here.
For the front of the house. Curb appeal
Would work well for front of house
