This is a simple and inexpensive way to dress up an already existing front yard lawn. Whether you have too much lawn to take care of, simply want to break up the large expanse of grass, or want to create a little more visible curb appeal, this will work well without going full scale landscaping and tearing up the entire yard.
A simple matter of marking your areas, cutting out the lawn with a shovel or sod cutter, planting plants, and laying down some landscape fabric and ground cover. Of course, if you still have too much lawn you can take it a little further and add some decorative edging. Depending on the type of lawn grass you have, edging may be necessary to keep the lawn out of your new flower beds.
