In my opinion, the best part about spring is creating gorgeous curb appeal that will last all summer. I love the flowers, the greenery, and making my own little garden oasis. This year I won’t be able to do that since our home isn’t finished, but I’m already brainstorming ideas for next year!
Enjoy these front yard landscaping and floral ideas that will hopefully help to inspire your own curb appeal and love for gardening.
Front Yard Landscaping and Floral Ideas
Do any of you have those ugly utility boxes in their front yard? Sometimes they are really inconvenient, but there are fun ways to be creative in “hiding” them in your yard. This is a fun idea to create some curb appeal and hide the utility box. Source here.
If grass isn’t your thing, this is a really fun way to change the look of your front yard from traditional sod. Putting in only shrubs and flowers is a really awesome change, although, probably more work! Source.
I really love it when walkways are lined with flowers and shrubs. This is a really fun one that pops with the white rock. Source.
Don’t ever underestimate the power of greenery and shrubs. A classy look can be better than anything! Source.
This is a beautiful one too with the brightly colored flowers. Source unknown.
If you are looking for something a little more simple, putting in one type of plant/flower along a front walk can be very stunning. Source.
Another fun way to change up your front yard landscaping is by adding in window boxes, just like this really cute one from The Lily Pad Cottage. See more here.
There are so many different styles and ways to use a trellis, just like this one. If you have limited garden space, these are a great way to still get beautiful florals or plants by growing up instead of out. A trellis is great for bringing a cottage vibe to your landscaping. And not to mention, they can just look really cool. Source.
This modern DIY garden trellis is an awesome option if you want to try building your own. They are also great way to add privacy. See it here.
Try sprucing up your front curb appeal by adding an archway, which can technically also be a trellis. I love this one and the beautiful flowers covering it. Source.
Make use of those boring necessities we have to have, like your mailbox. Turn it into a visual art display like this one! Source unknown.
Here is another one that is a little more simple and with a retaining stone wall built around the base. Source.
Another fun option is to add a decorative fence. I love these types of fences because they really push the cottage vibe! Source.
Don’t be afraid to go big and bold with your choices, especially with flowers like these ever popular hydrangeas. These are some of my favorite flowers! Source.
And don’t be afraid to “pack” it in. A cottage style floral bed like this one tends to create a more cozy and relaxed atmosphere compared to straight lines and minimal planting beds. Source here.
I couldn’t help but reminisce over my flowers from years past. I loved creating this look with lots of variety and colors. See more details here.
