More front yard landscaping photos and design ideas. There are a few more considerations for choosing the right plants for the front yard. You want to accent the home without hiding it. And as I pointed out on the previous page, keeping things to scale and proportion is very important. That&#039s why, when planning your landscape, it&#039s important to have an idea of what your plants will be at maturity.
Besides just looking bad, there are a few safety factors to be considered for designing the front yard. The biggest mistakes that I see in this area, besides totally hiding the house, are in covering up windows and address signs. Having large bushes and trees hiding windows and doors is a great place for crooks to hide while they can take their time beaking into your home. Covering your address sign is not good if emergency personel ever need to find your home. More on this below. So let us take a look at 18 pictures front door overhang photos below.

Opposite of backyard landscaping, the front is generally designed for access and invitation. You should plan ideas to make sure that entry to your home is a pleasant experience and not an obstacle course. By knowing how wide your landscape plants will be in your yard at maturity, you can plant them a satisfactory distance from sidewalks and drives so that they don&#039t overtake these areas. It&#039s not a pleasant experience to walk through wet bushes on a rainy day just to get to someones front door.
