The lawn type here is a hybrid Bermuda grass. While this landscaper would advise not to use such an aggressive turf grass in areas with so many surrounding flower beds, sometimes we just do as we're told.

Choosing the right plants in front yard landscaping can sometimes be a little different than for the backyard. In the front we concentrate more on curb appeal, framing and accenting the home, and creating boundaries with plants. In the backyard, the lawn and plants might concentrate more on framing individual areas, creating solitude, and hiding unwanted areas.
