Creating a warm and inviting front yard is a great way to enhance the first impression of your property. Beautiful front yards change neighborhoods, but before you get carried away with planting, establishing pathways to the entrance, you have to consider a couple of practical matters.

Choosing Lawn Grass

If you like to have natural grass in your front yard, choosing a lawn grass may not be an easy task. Grasses need water and at least 4 hours of direct sun a day to grow and look good. If you don't water your lawn during summer droughts, or the soil in your regions doesn't retain much water, fescue grasses will probably fit you the best. Fescue grasses, in general, are ideal for low-maintenance lawns. They don't require extensive fertilizing, and you won't mow it closer than 3 inches to the ground.

Kentucky bluegrass has excellent color, density, and texture, but it is maintenance high, requires higher amounts of water and best mown over 1 1/2 - 2 1/4 inches to maintain a manicured appearance of the lawn and to keep the most moisture in summer drought conditions. Without fertilizing any a natural grass, diseases and loss of immunity rapidly develop. Fertilization is a tricky business. It required a chemist to determine that exact amount of chemicals your lawn needs.

Choosing artificial turf recently became an open option for homeowners. We used to think that artificial lawns have something to do with an ugly, unnaturally looking astroturf, but with technologies we use today to manufacture synthetic grasses, the bridge between natural and artificial beauty becomes thinner and thinner. Take a look at the picture below. Can you tell the difference?

Synthetic grass immediate and long-term advantages as:

  1. It doesn't require watering (safe fat monthly bill).
  2. There is no need in mowing or trimming edges.
  3. Synthetic grass dries quickly after rain and keep green and cool during summer drought periods.
  4. No worries about weeds, diseases and immune system of the grass.
  5. No chemicals, no fertilization.
  6. Once installed, a synthetic lawn will last you 20 years with a minimum maintenance (you will need to clean it up once in a while, of course) and safe you're a big deal in water-related terms.
  7. If you have pets, artificial grass protects your lawn from developing brown spots (from pet's urine acid
