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!

Lavender in a pot. Easy. Comes back every year. Just prune back. Simple and beautiful. -Also wanted to say, it loves the sun. Blooms are darker. Pots are great for all herbs!

Pick three plants. Repeat. You cant go wrong--this reminds me of the south of France.

Tar and chip driveway. This has an upscale look with the cobblestone edging. The raised curbing will work great. And although I like the look of the triple border, I would imagine this will take some upkeep.
