Publisher Comments:

A hands-on guide that puts curb appeal within reach of every home.

Front yards make strong first impressions. Taunton's Front Yard Idea Book gives you the tools you need to make your yard's first impression spectacular. The first outdoor book in Taunton's popular "Idea Book" series, this book is filled with practical ideas on everything from creating an inviting entry and driveway to lighting for mood and safety to designing the right foundation plantings. Dozens of site plans and creative solutions to common landscaping problems make this an invaluable hands-on guide that puts curb appeal within reach of every home.

Taunton's Front Yard Idea Book is packed with:

  • creative landscaping plans for all site shapes and sizes — from tiny, in-town lots and homes on steep slopes to traditional suburban neighborhoods and country farmhouses
  • everything you need to know about how to improve curb appeal
  • innovative solutions to common landscaping problems, such as poor drainage, unwanted views, limited parking space, and lack of privacy

Review:

"An excellent introduction to a much-neglected aspect of American garden design." Michael Weishan, host of PBS' The Victory Garden

Synopsis:

Providing front yard plans for all styles of homes, landscape architect Webber encourages homeowners to think creatively about their yards and provides ingenious ideas for entries, paths, driveways, and plants. Illustrations.

Synopsis:

Front yards make strong first impressions. They set the mood when we come home and greet guests coming for a visit. They can give a home a friendly face, create a personal sense of place, and bring life to a neighborhood. But most front yards are underutilized. Many are marred by patchy lawns and overgrown foundation plantings, while in some communities, front yards all look alike.

Landscape architect Jeni Webber encourages homeowners to think creatively about their front yards. In Taunton's Front Yard Idea Book, she provides ingenious ideas for expanding a home's outdoor living area. The book is both inspirational and practical, with hundreds of beautiful photographs, numerous design tips, and ideas for entries, paths, driveways, lighting, and plants.
