In our last blog we talked about what setting is right for you. Everyone knows what “curb appeal” is, but we wanted to take it a step further and find out what makes a great front yard that you can enjoy now, not just ways to spruce up your home when you are ready to sell. Here are some of the best ideas we found, and some examples of our listings, both past and present that we think presented a great front.

Steps to linger on. A front porch is not necessarily essential to a welcoming entry. Potted plants in a framing arrangement guide visitors to the front door, and the stairs are potentially a great place to sit, relax and take in the view.

The classic white picket fence. Sometimes the front yard needs a fence — to keep the dogs in or provide a barrier on a busy street. What more welcoming feature to include than a white picket fence?

A planted pathway. Make your entry walk feel more like a cottage garden path than a path from the driveway to the front door. Visitors can enjoy flowering shrubs that edge the path without enveloping it as they make their way to the front door. A brightly colored door enhances the front yard’s year-round appeal.
