Front Yard Trees
Trees will be the main landscape remaining for years, in addition, with the appeal of your home. Trees can contribute to the overall appearance of your front yard perhaps more than almost any other part of your landscaping design. Unfortunately, many new homes that are now being built come with almost no trees on the property at all, or at least very few. This leaves it up to the homeowner to come up with a winning front yard landscaping idea, and choose the right trees for its design. When choosing trees for the front yard many people forget to consider the annual cycle of the tree. But you need to think about how long it will hold its leaves, what color its blossoms will be, when it comes into fruit, and when its leaves start to change color. It’s a good idea to contrast flowering deciduous trees with evergreens, slender trees with those that have more bulk and mass.
If you have a fairly large front yard try to lay out a foreground, a middle ground, and a background for your home landscaping design. The background is often most naturally composed of large trees. These can even be rough, irregular appearing trees that don’t look so well at close range. In the background though, they can provide great texture to what could otherwise be considered monotonous. In the middle ground is where you can choose medium-sized trees and large shrubs that all produce colorful foliage and blossoms.
