Front yards are the outdoor equivalent of a hallway. They are high-traffic spaces that you, your guests, your neighbors, and anyone passing by your home can get a good glimpse of. However, as with hallways, it can be a little neglected when it comes to making it pretty. We understand that these spaces can be tricky when it comes to aesthetics because they need to be functional too if you want them to be the home of your car, and they can also be tight on space, or out of shape. But regardless, front yards deserve your attention.
