There’s nothing quite as inviting as a well-designed and maintained front yard. While it’s easy to put down a couple of paving stones or plant a flower or two, those features can only do so much to change the look of your yard. If you’re interested in doing more, the good news is there are plenty of options out there that can make your Avon home look its very best. Here are some ideas:
A big beautiful yard full of grass is great to look at, but they can often leave visitors to your home confused on how to enter your home. A large, well-sculpted pathway makes a clear path for visitors, leading them to your front door while at the same time letting them know it’s okay to be there in the first place.
While it may be summer now, we can’t forget about the LONG Cleveland winter. A well-designed pathway will make it easy for your visitors to make their way to the front door, even in snowy conditions.
In addition to the pathway, extra features such as lights or plants along the walk can make the pathway even more pleasant.

Another great idea is to spruce up the action in your front yard by adding a water feature. This can come in the form of a fountain, pond or something else. Water features add so much to your lawn -- the sounds of nature right outside your front door, the sight of wildlife as it pays your yard a visit -- and it does so while being a one-of-a-kind element to your yard that’s sure to turn heads.
We typically think of gardens as a backyard endeavor, but if you’re front yard lacks space, one option is to take that space and turn it into a warm, inviting garden complete with sitting areas and walkways. This adds beauty and functionality to what could otherwise be a boring, unused space.
One interesting idea that can take a boring yard and make it more appealing is to divide it into sections that fit together, like pieces of a puzzle. Each piece can be its own section, complete with different heights, plantings and borders that all work together to help draw the visitor’s eye to the front door.
