look for small evergreens, grasses, and plants with interesting habits (such as corkscrew willow) for winter good looks. This planting also takes advantage of color to create extra impact. The contrasting purple-and-chartreuse color theme looks great and personalizes the garden.

I've always been a fan of a garden path that curves! Even the sidewalk has gentle curves, adds lots of interest doesn't it?
BEFORE: Tough-to-Mow Slope - Sloping front yards can be a lot of work to maintain -- it's not easy trudging up and down with a mower, nor is trying to keep the slope properly fed and watered any fun. If you're facing a situation like this, put in some plantings to dress up your slope and give you more time to enjoy a beautiful front yard.
Leave Space to Entertain - A great way to give your yard a more welcoming feel is to add a patio. Just like the front porches of days gone by, you can sit back and wave to neighbors while enjoying a cold glass of lemonade on a summer evening. ~ Decorate your front yard patio with a skirt of flowers or a small hedge to help it seem more intimate and enclosed -- without making an unfriendly barrier.
Hanham Court, photo by iandjbannerman - The formal gardens have luscious borders of old roses, tree peonies and lilies. An amazing woodland garden with a running stream, pool, snowdrops, magnolias, ferns and the iconic Bannerman stumpery. Beyond the walls lies a downland of wild flower meadows overlooking the River Avon, and an orchard. To the West of the garden is a working vegetable and kitchen garden.

Front Yard Rock Garden. Even if you don't have a naturally rocky site, you can easily create one. In this front yard, a stone wall offers an ideal foundation and border for a variety of low-growing alpine classics, including Aubrieta 'Royal Blue', Phlox subulata, and Potentilla. Gypsophila franzii and Dianthus 'Tiny Rubies' fill crevices between stones and help to integrate the stone wall with the rest of the terrace garden
