Front Yard Landscaping in Ottawa

Your front yard is what welcomes you home from work almost every day.

Design Features Of A Front Yard

Mixing Hard & Soft

Combining a mixture of hardscape features and soft scaping features is the best way to balance the look and curb appeal of your home.  Trees, shrubs and ground cover plants are great options for the Ottawa climate and weather. 

All That Grass

Lawns are the preferred medium for most front yards in the city.  They are pretty easy to take care of with just a bit of water and mowing.  Instead of having a large rectangular grass area why not try installing a bordered garden that meanders in front of your home.  Then maybe connect that with an interlock walkway from the front of the garage to your entrance?  

Other Front Yard Landscape Design Ideas

Include Accent Tree

Add a focal point to the front of your house, gain extra privacy from the street and get some shade from the morning sun.  Accent trees in the front of the house make an impression and make your house stand out. Using reliable native species is good for the local ecology and has few pest problems. 

Raised Planters

Raised flower beds are a great way to brighten up the front of your house. We install healthy soil, strong plants and a decorative border, mowing strip or retaining wall.  Our designers choose plants that are hardy and appropriate for the growing conditions of your yard. 

Interlock Driveway Extension

A driveway extension is an affordable way to breath life into your front yard and increase parking spots too. In Ottawa they are considered temporary and can be installed without zoning permission.  We can choose a pattern & style of interlock paver that matches the style of your home.

Think That Front Yards Are For Others To Enjoy?

Think again! 

The notion that the front is for public and the back is for family time is simply not the case after a landscape design from A&Z Interlock. Front yards often have great shade and in Ottawa, they are usually the largest part of the yard.  Is privacy a concern?  The city allows for fences and privacy screens up until the foot of your garage, reclaim your front yard with an Ottawa landscaping renovation.
