Front Yard Sidewalk-Garden Ideas: Grow a Cutting Garden. Even though they take up little real estate, small-space sidewalk gardens can be great for growing your own cut flowers. Here, foxgloves, roses, and a host of other flowers are perfect for dressing up the front of the house and dropping in a vase for a great hostess gift or table decoration.

Use Layers in the Garden: Some of the best gardens use layering -- where you combine layers of plants that grow at different heights. This is a great example; the white alyssum and purple-leafed lobelia in the front set the stage for taller tulips and butterfly flower, which are in turn backed by society garlic and a wall topped by glowing pink bougainvillea.
