There are many options that you can have for creating a beautiful lawn. I understand that minimal maintenance means less headaches and an evergreen lawn that looks simple but is practical as well.concrete leveling Columbus

There are lot of options that will help you make your home front beautiful. You can start off with a small fountain or a waterfall in the corner. Put up a hammock or a patio. Also you can have a pathway created for walks in the garden. Use decirative stones, add up a bench or a swing. A number of options are available, make a design in mind and then go about purchasing what you need.

if you are into DIY you could set up a little project for yourself :)  we just bought a new mattress online and the company doesn't do mattress removal so we thought - hey, opportunity to repurpose :)  we took out the springs and arrange them on our lawn up the driveway and put candles in each.  they actually look quite nice :)

Exactly. Thats the thing. Its the entrance that has to be given a lot more of attention. I feel it needs more care and attention than your living room. I have beautified them with flowers, lantern lights garden tiles, side edged pebbled pathways. They look soothing and good.

You can go for a few all-season flowers and the pathway bordered by lights and a small chair-n-table set to relish the sun to sip a cup of coffee.

I would aslo suggest you that if you're on a budget you can create a simple decorative pathway with patio stones or decorative stones to jazz things up a bit.

I agree with Kathy, I've used decorative concrete to spruce up many of my projects. However, if you're on a budget you can create a simple decorative pathway with patio stones or decorative stones to jazz things up a bit.

In case you do not need a whole new landscape or have a front yard that just needs a little fixin attractive and even, here are some tips and ideas that can help. Decorative Concrete - decorative concrete can often add a touch of class like nothing else. There are literally hundreds of applications that can take a beating from old concrete driveways and sidewalks a fresh new look that will instantly transform the landscape. If the existing concrete is in bad shape, that must be addressed in order to give your home a cozy look. And since the cost is comparable there is no reason to use plain old gray concrete more. Set the lawn area - This could mean a lot of different things, but most often it is suggested that either minimize the amount of lawn area you have or to plant a lawn grass variety that suits its better climate. A green lawn is very appealing, while a dry yellow grass in front is just the opposite. And usually the cause of this is to have grass too much water or have a lawn type that is not appropriate for the weather. Therefore reduce the amount of grass that is the creation of some beds border with ground cover. and while you're at it, the type of plants or turf grass seed. The house itself - When you mention the addition of the attractive front yard landscape, most people never even consider the home as part of the view. However, after a beautiful landscape with a house in dis-repair is like having a stain on his shirt. It's all people can see. So fix the gutters hanging, broken boards, paint, if necessary, and anything that you can see. These design ideas and tips will give your landscape a front yard full facelift without breaking the bank. Besides picking up toys, lawn mowing, and perhaps planting some flowers, creating an attractive exterior in the front yard does not always mean a landscaping plan or major project. So with that and either way you go, do not forget the following resources for some good ideas and inspiration.

Would you add some perennials - both greens and flowers.  It would look so pretty & it is not hard to care for.
