Dream House Update: Front Yard Landscaping Ideas

March 3, 2016 — 5 Comments

landscaping ideas for a narrow front yard, including star jasmine, dwarf italian cypress, and more

We’ve had some days lately with absolutely beautiful weather—sunshine, blue skies, gentle, balmy breezes. We have Springtime on the brain, and it’s inspiring us to start working on some landscaping at our house. Because we have absolutely nothing at this point. There’s no way we can do all of the landscaping this year–there’s just too much to do–but our house goals for this year include making the front yard look beautiful. It’s kind of a narrow area (the sweeping lawns will be elsewhere), so I’ve spent a lot of time lately looking for landscaping ideas for narrow areas. We have been picking up plants, pavers, potting soil, and mulch over the past few weekends, and have a basic design ready to go. Italian Cypress, Star Jasmine, Boxwood, and more! You can see our favorite inspiration photos and landscaping ideas on my latest Style Spotters post for Better Homes & Gardens. And if you have any landscaping tips, favorite plants, or websites to recommend for great yard inspiration, leave me a comment below!
