There’s plenty of opportunity for beautiful landscaping in a small front yard and with warmer weather being right around the corner, it’s time to get some ideas flowing! No matter the size of your yard, there’s always room to add touches that will spruce up your outdoor space and make it stand out. Here are some tips to make your small front yard look its best:

1. The most important tip is to make it personal. You want your home, even the outside, to reflect your own personal style. This will not only love the look of your front yard more but it will also be more inviting to neighbors. When you choose complementary plants and designs, match it to the style of your home the best you can so that your small front yard represents it, whether its traditional or contemporary.

2. Size it right. Since you’re working with a smaller yard, it’s important to size and proportion everything correctly in order for it to look great! For example, if plants or trees are too tall, it can overwhelm the outside of your home. Also, if you put too much in one area, it will look messy and cluttered.

3. Go bold. With flowers, you can never have too many colors in your yard. For walkways or even stairs leading to the front door can be lined with bright, colorful flowers. For stairs, you could use a couple flower pots with different types of flowers to put on either end of steps.

4. Grass is not a must have. Small yards can be beautiful if they’re taken care of properly. With this in mind, don’t feel the need to have grass in your lawn. You can replace it with pea gravel or pebbles for an easy ground cover and line the ground with weed resistant mesh beforehand. If you do want grass in your yard, make sure you maintain it!

All of these small yard tips are great to keep in mind for the homes at the Siena Place community. You can make your front yard pop in one of these beautiful, luxury townhouses in Philadelphia!
