    "Woodsy" front yard makeover offers privacy

  • Natalie Eastwood

    After #1: New fence, path & plantings that replaced LAWN add huge curb appeal. The beauty of the new front garden is that the plants look good all year w. minimal care. It now has 2 parts-public & more private-separated by fencing. In the woodsy “public” section, Arbutus ‘Marina’ trees are underplanted with mounded deep green Carex tumulicola, which spills onto the entry path. Closer to the house, scattered around the patio, a mix of plants adds some color-yellows, blues, & deep plum-chocolate.

Funny thing about this pin... I saw this fence in a slideshow of front yard makeovers YEARS ago, and L*O*V*E*D it. Except then I forgot where I saw it. It took me a bit of searching, but I finally dug it up, and bookmarked it. Wish I'd just had pinterest from the beginning!

In this front yard, a large concrete planter is wrapped in an 18"-high sleeve of burnished stainless steel and planted with a low hedge of emerald green boxwood, creating an interesting juxtaposition of sleek and rugged. To soften the look, Mexican river rock and lush coreopsis and hostas nestle at its foot.

Dress Up Your Walkway Transform your front walk into a stylish statement by edging it in easy-care plants such as variegated hosta and boxwood. Conjure even more magic by putting a gentle curve in the path; it will offer your walkway with a soft, gentle look.

Drought-tolerant yard Replace a boring lawn with golden gravel dotted with an ornamental grass like deer grass (Muhlenbergia rigens), then add a few accent plants like blue-leaved Weber agave--all of which can withstand a low-water climate.
