Landscaping: Don’t Put all Your Eggs in One Basket

With the Easter Bunny on his way this weekend, it got me thinking about landscaping ideas for spring. I realized we focus so much on backyard spaces and outdoor living; the front of the house is being neglected! That age-old saying “don’t put all your eggs in one basket” can happen when talking about landscaping.

So what kinds of things can you do to add style to your front yard?


Paint Your Front Door – a new coat of paint can add an instant face lift to the front of your house for very little time and money spent.

Plant Something New – Whether it is some colorful annuals or a new set of bushes, new plants can change the whole feel to your front yard space.

Add Some Lighting – get a new porch light or add a light post to your pathway to bring a more secure and inviting feel to your neighborhood.

Add a Courtyard – Using a patio wall system like AB Courtyard, you can create a simple entry courtyard to separate your front yard space into an inviting place to welcome guests.

Whatever you choose – changes big or small the Easter Bunny will be proud of you for not putting all your efforts in the back yard so he can hide those eggs!
