Low maintenance landscaping is extremely popular and no more so than for your front yard which is always on display.  You may opt to have professionals design your front yard for you, but in the event that your budget doesn´t allow for this, there are a few key factors you can introduce into your garden that will improve the look without breaking the bank.

Reducing the amount of grass you have in your front garden will reduce the amount of maintenance it requires.  Using clover as an alternative is a great way to add vegetation to your front yard without the need to mow.  In addition to not requiring any mowing, clovers are also very adaptable and don´t require a lot of watering either.  They will do well in virtually any setting and have a natural resistance to bugs which makes then ideal for both front and backyards.

Incorporating an irrigation system into your front garden will also ensure that you don´t have to spend much time watering your plants.  Drip irrigation systems as best as they constantly drip feed your garden plants and keep them at the optimum level of moisture.  In addition to saving you time, they also save you money as you won´t need to water as much with the constant drip feeding will keep the soil moist all day long.

Paving stones and pathways can also reduce the amount of foliage that you require with just a few key feature items to make the front yard area inviting.  Many people opt for other features such as fountains and birdbaths that entice other animals and creatures to your garden without having to do a great deal of designing.  Whatever your choice, make sure that your front yard landscape has great curb appeal if you want to keep your neighbours happy.
