Before you begin decorating your lawn, seeding, and adding plants and flowers, you should take a look at how your lawn is divided in relation to your home. Do you have a large front yard? Large back yard? And how about a side yard? This is all potential space for you to use in various ways.
For example, your front yard could include:
A small garden
Shrubs and flowers in front of the home
A small walkway to the front door
Your back yard could include:
Places for children to play
Your side yard could include:
Serve as a walkway to the back of the home
These are some things you should consider before you go out and buy decorative items for your lawn. Deciding how your lawn will be used will depend mostly on your lifestyle and the amount of maintenance you want to do to make your lawn the best it can be. Many people have a nice, lush front yard, and use their backyard for children or for gardening purposes. Other people will put gravel and a driveway in their front yard.
When deciding what to do with your lawn, you should:
Determine how much time you can spend on upkeep
How much you enjoy being outdoors
Your family’s needs
The length of time you will be in the home
Sometimes people take on more than they can do in a day. Be sensible and realize if you are really a lazy person by nature or an industrious go-getter. Then design a lawn that will fit your needs as well as your personality. You and your lawn will appreciate you better for it.
