    There are many ways to landscape your front yard on your budget. A good landscaping idea is to invest in a lawn service. With the right company, you may be able to work out a monthly payment plan that suits you. This can help to keep weeds down and make mowing more manageable for homeowners who might not have the time or know-how themselves. Add some shade trees along the street and if space permits, plant a garden in the backyard as well. Finally, add some ground cover plants where appropriate--they're inexpensive but really do wonders for breaking up an expanse of lawn or green space.

    - Plant the front yard with large bushes of a variety of the following species: - Cherokee Rose, Blackberry Bush, Yew Palmetto, Japanese Pagoda Tree, Cuban Royal Palm.
    - In order to mask unsightly objects such as fridges and air conditioning units at ground level, plant creepers around them and cover any unsightly metal or concrete.
    - Landscape with a brick paved pathway to allow space for seating. Place an outdoor table off center that will give equal opportunities for all terraces in the garden to experience sunlight such as early morning or late afternoon hours.
    - Add tall trees throughout such as Cypress Palms (Washingtonia Filifera).

    First, you need to know the design of the front yard. Next, you need to know what plants and flowers work in your climate and choose which can survive on a budget. For example, perennials are usually less expensive than annuals because they return year after year and require less maintenance. Lastly, contact a landscape architect to finalize all decisions about design and layout.
    Professional landscaping is not just an expense - it is also an investment that needs to be planned meticulously for it to turn out as expected. When landscaping on a budget, take into account that first-time mistakes will cost more time than money! With careful consideration for every aspect (design, plants selection etc.).

    A front yard landscape design should reflect the overall theme of the home and yard and should work in harmony with it. Good landscape design means that the colors, textures, shapes and size of each plant are considered when placed on a large scale drawing or plan. A good strategy is to coordinate plants which serve similar functions together to create some sort of unity to your garden design, so that it flows better in general.
    Moving into gardening can often be daunting as there are many options for creating a landscape on a budget and few resources dedicated solely to this topic online or off. Start by working within what you have already done on your property – do you like shrubs? Do trees need trimming?

    Landscaping your front yard on a budget is pretty easy, and you can even save yourself the trouble of having to buy any materials by asking your friends and family if anyone has anything that they're not using anymore.
    The basics are to lay down mulch so that it's level with the ground and punch through it where needed with potted plants or small shrubs. You could also try planting some trees nearby; their natural shade helps cool off the summertime heat. Lighting fixtures, like solar powered garden lights, can also be installed for those nighttime barbecues or evening walks in candlelight. And lastly, don't forget about adding flowers!

    It is important that a well-designed, low cost landscape will involve hard work and time. But the results of having a yard with interesting plants and enough space to play are worth it.
    When landscaping, choose a theme which compliments your home and family's lifestyle, invest in select trees or shrubs for year round interest, watch the budget by choosing native plant species where appropriate to save money on water. Quality over quantity is key to design on any budget - remember that most people spend their days sitting inside their homes rather than outside in their yards so coming up with creative design features like pathways, decks or patios mean you get something back for all the sweat equity you put into your yard!
