Design Ideas, Travertine Pavers

Ideas to spice up your front yard

Could your front yard use a little sprucing up? It may be time to get some new travertine pavers and create a beautiful walkway leading up to your front door. Once you install these natural stone pavers, your front yard will begin to look like a whole new space. However, a walkway alone may not be enough if your grass is looking brown or the rest of your yard is bare, which is why you may want to make some more upgrades.

For example, DIY Network recommended that if you want to make your front yard a little more exciting, you should consider picking up some chimes. The news source explained that chimes can emit a pleasant sound and are portable enough to move around your yard whenever you need a change.

You should also consider planting vegetables in your front yard. While this yard is traditionally a space where you’d plant flowers, vegetables can be beautiful as well and you’ll get a chance to show off your green thumb.

Another thing you can do to make your front yard more interesting is to start planting a different type of grass. According to Better Homes and Gardens magazine, ornamental grasses such as Japanese forest grass are not only beautiful, but they’re also easy to care for.

It may also be time for you to put a small, decorative fence up around your front yard. Not only will this add a little flair to your yard, but it may encourage people to stay on your travertine path when they walk up to your door, rather than trample all over your freshly planted grass and vegetables.

Your front yard tells the world what type of homeowner you are, so be sure to keep it beautiful.
