Many of which we offer here at Foothills Landscaping and Irrigation. Here are the best front yard landscape ideas to boost your home’s curb appeal:

Sod & Grass

One of the simplest front yard landscape ideas for a nice curb appeal is new sod and grass installation. If your front yard is looking unsightly, sod and grass installation is just what you need.

For the best results, you’ll likely want full-service sod and grass installation. The process includes completely covering or patching those small or big dry patches that are common in Colorado Springs. Once this process is complete, the overall appearance and health of your front yard will be elevated.

Flower Baskets

Flower baskets are also an extremely easy way to drastically improve your home’s curb appeal. The great thing about flower baskets is that they provide an instant facelift, regardless of the time of year. Depending on the season, you can place sunflowers, poinsettias, pansies, petunias, or another type of flowers in these baskets.

Retaining Wall

If your yard needs a retaining wall, why not make it aesthetically pleasing? There are many fantastic ways to build a retaining wall for extra curb appeal.

When building a retaining wall for function and aesthetics, the most important things to consider are the materials and rock design. Whether you choose to go with moss rock, boulder, manufactured block, or another material, our experts can create a beautiful rock design that includes many different tone options. The final result will provide instant curb appeal.

Fireplaces & Pits

Fireplaces and pits are popular front yard landscape ideas because they offer relaxation, and aesthetics. They also provide great memories of roasting marshmallows or talking with loved ones around a warm fire.

Fireplaces and pits can be built according to your unique preferences. A custom-designed fireplace or pit can be built with stone, brick, or concrete pavers, and they can be as large or small as you want. For added curb appeal, consider placing coordinated furniture next to the fireplace and/or pit. The furniture should also be comfortable to ensure that your family and friends have a good time around the fireplace and pit.
