Landscaping Ideas for Front of House Design
Older and historic homes often have landscaping ideas for front of house, sometimes with carved wooden decorations or other decorative elements. The scenery around this porch is difficult because you don’t want to detract from the porch yourself. Landscaping ideas for older houses with porches should add color to the home without removing from the interior.
Hanging baskets are specially designed to hang from the top of the porch ceiling. A rounded plastic container has a drip tray attached, and a curved metal piece attached to the best slips over a hanging hook and holds the basket in place. These baskets give a bright pop of color to the porch because of the colorful flowers inside. For landscaping ideas for porch that lack roofs, look for hanging hooks for the yard. Made of wrought iron, these pieces have a straight axis, with a curved top. The pendant fits directly into the ground next to the porch and the curved part at the top holds the amp.
Front Porch Garden
The space directly in front of the veranda is often overlooked, but is the right size for a small garden or discount. Map the size of the garden and use stacked stones or wooden pieces as the walls of the garden. The walls provide a clear division between the garden and the rest of the lawn. Create two separate gardens, one on either side of the stairs to the porch or porch entrance. Make the garden wrap around the side of the house, or stop it right at the end of the house. Fill in flowers of different colors, or use the garden space to grow your own vegetables.
