Front Yard Landscaping, Walkway, and Fencing Ideas

I have to landscape the front yard of my rancher... I hope to find ideas that aren't necessarily like the same ol' same ol'. Will also be adding a fence to the back yard, and some of it will have to be of a "pretty kind" as it will be seen. The rest will be of a "cheap" kind lol (it will be inside a lot of weedy growth) - just to keep the dog from running from the yard - chasing cats and other critters while she's out there with me!
