When it comes to creating a landscape plan, the most difficult thing is often the starting point. Our collection of plans and ideas makes it easy to fill your entire yard. Start by seeing the dramatic transformation of spaces in before-and-after photos. Then, think about your own yard: Do you do a lot of entertaining? We have a landscape plan for you, with tips to transition easily from small gatherings or to accommodate large families. Front yards are often underused -- and under planted; our large, welcoming front yard will have you pulling up a chair to take a new perspective on your landscape. There are also plans to cut down on the work you have to do -- no-mow, for example, or low-maintenance. A landscaping plan doesn't have to break your budget; try these ideas to economically enhance your front yard. Families spend so much of their time in the yard -- but spaces have to be friendly for both parents and kids. These plans do both, with spaces that allow for activity and escape. A small yard deserves the same attention as a large yard; these plans for both small backyards and small front yards will give you seasonal color and interest.
