Landscaping for Curb Appeal Creating curb appeal is one of those landscaping

areas where you want your front yard to stand out from surrounding yards without being totally out-of-place with the rest of the neighborhood. To get curb appeal, you need to have color, form, line, texture, scale, and focal points by using a variety plants, hardscape, and water features. Annuals provide bright colors in the spring, throughout the summer and are great for filling in gaps in your garden. Evergreens provide green all year long, so in the winter your beds and your yard don’t look so bare. Perennials give a variety of color throughout spring, summer, and fall. When planting, you want them layered and staggered to give some contrast, form of repetition and balance to provide unity.
