Some folks a perfectly happy with landscaping that is basic, simple, clean, and easy to take care of. And other than the small rock retaining wall rising next to the home, this yard isn't really landscaped at all. While there is a lot that could be done to this front yard, it doesn't give the impression that it is lacking.
When creating your garden and yard plans, it's important to consider just how much time you want to spend in the yard doing maintenance and lawn care. As you can see with this landscape, there is quite a bit of mowing but very little trimming and flower bed work. A riding lawn mower and a few hours once a week would pretty much take care of this one.
