We completely renovated a simple low-lying house for a university family by opening the back side with large windows and a wrap-around patio. The kitchen counter extends to the exterior, enhancing the sense of openness to the outside. Large overhanging soffits and horizontal cedar siding keep the house from overpowering the view and help it settle into the landscape. An expansive maple floor and white ceiling reinforce the horizontal sense of space. Phil Bond Photography

Frasier Meadows is home to a very active retirement community in Boulder, Colorado. The front yard area comes alive in late spring and early summer with a carpet of aromatic wooly thyme in full bloom.

Within this garden we wanted to create a space which was not only on numerous levels, but also had various points of interest. This garden is on a slope, but is also very wide. Firstly, we broke up the space by using rustic sleepers to create several raised beds,as well as steps which lead to differennt zones. This helps to give the garden a more traditional, country edge. The sleepers were also used to create a winding path through out the garden, marrying together the various areas. The path leads up to the impressive sunburst pergola and circular stone patio. This is the perfect spot to view the whole garden. At the other end of the garden another pergola sits amougnst a bustling flower bed, and will be used to train vining flowers. Along the back wall of the garden a raised bed is home to a stunning display of wildflower. This plot is not only a fabulous riot of colour and full of rustic charm, but it also attracts a whole host of insects and animals. While wildflowers looks great they are also very low maintenance. Mixed gravel has been used to create a variety of texture. This surface is intermittently dotted with colour with lemon thyme, red hot pokers and foxgloves. Stone has been used to create a warm and welcoming patio area. Flower beds at the front of the garden can be used for veg and other leafy plants. Overall we have created a country style with a very contemporary twist through the use of gravel, modern shape and structural landscaping.
A beautifully designed garden is just as important as the interior of your home. Your front yard, especially, will contribute to the first impression people have of your home, and therefore deserves the same attention to detail as any room in your house. Plants and landscaping can add colour, texture and even fragrance to gardens, and can be as elaborate or or low maintenance as your lifestyle and preferences permit. You may not have much space for greenery, but even a balcony garden can make for a peaceful oasis in a concrete jungle. Whether it’s a manicured front lawn, paved pathway or intricate garden design, this space should complement your home’s landscape, architecture and design, suit the local climate, and reflect your household.

What plants should I add to my front garden?


Begin by considering the area immediately around and leading up to your front door, and choose a garden design that blends in well with the style of your home – for example, abundant foliage and flowering plants will perfectly complement a period property, whereas man-made materials, geometric shapes and contrasting textures are great ideas for a contemporary garden design. If maintenance is an issue, opt for succulents, bushes or neatly-pruned hedges; and if you don't have a green thumb, stick with grass and use a gravel pathway, water feature, timber fence or stone wall for variation. If you have a balcony garden, get creative with hanging plants, living walls, and potted plants with underplanting.

What garden features should I add to my backyard?


The backyard is for entertaining and playtime, so incorporate seating, dining areas, play spaces and sunny relaxation spots. Vegetable gardens and rose gardens are popular yard additions, especially when combined with a pergola, arbour, raised bed, border, walkway or fence. You can even add fun accessories like birdbaths and feeders to aid with birdwatching. For the ultimate party house, incorporate a pool and patio or deck with a fire pit, outdoor fireplace, barbecue and outdoor kitchen. If you're an active, sports-loving family, add a basketball court, volleyball court, bocce ball or croquet. And don't forget about outdoor furniture! A bench in a garden makes a great reading or meditation spot, while a weatherproof chaise lounge, sofa and chair are nice for taking in sunny days.
