A front yard may look bare without some sort of trees anchoring the landscape and complementing the house; however, not every trees can be an ideal specimen for a front landscape. There are several best trees for front yard. Japanese maples are classic favorites for front yards. They bring color, texture, beauty and stature to a front yard. Japanese maples look forward to fall when they can show off vivid and intense colorations of red, yellow-orange, purple and gold. Mature trees grow to a height of 15 to 25-feet, depending on the variety, which is tall enough to make a statement without overshadowing or dwarfing your home. Then, another good trees for your front yard could be evergreens. The major advantage of going with an evergreen for your front yard is variety. Evergreens include everything from junipers and varieties. This means that if you go with an evergreen, you will have many choices.
You can grow a “live fence” with junipers and cypress trees that will also serve as windbreakers along your property line. Or, you can indeed go for an evergreen tree such as a pine or spruce and start a family tradition of lighting an outdoor Christmas tree right in your front yard. Use your USDA planting zone as an initial guide for selecting evergreens appropriate for the sunlight and soil conditions of your front yard.
