Discover What Front Garden Designs Adelaide Landscape Designers Can Create.
Whether you’ve built a new home and now need to focus on the gardens, or you have bought an existing house and want to put your personal ‘stamp’ on it, it’s time to let landscape designers do what they do best, and that’s coming up with a landscape design that’s both functional to your situation and looks aesthetically pleasing.
You may need an extra off-road car space or two, perhaps an area for the caravan that wasn’t there before. You may want or need an easier way to get to the letterbox, or you may like to change the garden’s style completely.
A front garden is generally all about appearance or ‘curb appeal’ as it’s commonly referred to. It is obvious as you walk down a street to identify which homes are owner-occupier and which of the houses are investment properties, rented out, and even more obvious if any are housing trust homes. People who’ve bought the home to live in are far more ‘house proud’, they put more thought into front garden designs because they want the layout to best serve their unique needs. More money is spent as a result and the consequence is a better street appeal.
Landlords looking at a return on their investment know tenants aren’t going to look after the garden with the same passion homeowners will so make it simple and generally no maintenance. Until they decide to sell the property that is, when to get the best price, the front garden design has to come up to others in the street.
When looking at what Front Garden Designs Adelaide landscape designers from Living Pictures By Tony Stanton can create for you, a few points are discussed and taken into consideration during the initial concept design session.
The size, shape, and slope of the block, who’ll be accessing the garden, what separate spaces or areas you’d like, and what elements or features you’d like to include along with what budget you have to turn your vision into reality once the softscape and hardscape construction plans have been finalised.
It pays to be frank and honest with regard to the amount of money you have available for the landscaping works.
Tony would love your dream to be realised and will gladly try to fit your wishes into your budget, but he has to know what that is. Many of the design elements can be selected to meet different budgets.
The size and species of plants, type of paver retaining wall blocks, etc. will all have an impact on the final build price.
Having over 30 years of experience with front garden designs Adelaide based landscape designer Tony Stanton will amaze you with what’s possible, regardless of whether you have a courtyard, a small front garden design, a typical 20M x 40M (800M²) size block, or your sitting on acreage.
Take a look at the conceptual images and pictures of front gardens shown below to give you some modern front design ideas and examples of what’s possible with different styles, gradients, and block sizes.
Modern Front Garden Designs
Formal, modern garden layouts use straight lines and square edges within the landscape design.
The use of natural materials like pebbles, stone pavers, and timber decking with the right plant selection and colour palette all combine to create a statement that’s functional to use and stunning to look at!
Colonial Formal Front Gardens
Larger sized blocks with period homes built using bluestone or sandstone typically have formal front gardens.
Even if the front is fenced off from the street, the garden can be a welcoming area for their owners with plants to bring colour and joy.
Front Garden Designs For Sloping Blocks
Severe sloping blocks can be challenging for some cars, let alone a trip to the letterbox if you’re elderly, or when it’s been raining.
Steps make it easy to walk around a steep block. Retaining walls can ‘terrace’ the slope into different levels to be planted out.
