  1. Create a New Space– You can easily update your front yard to create new spaces for entertaining your family or catching up with neighbors.

You can add benches near the street or a small patio in the middle of the yard.  The sky is the limit when you are planning your new front yard entertainment space. 
  1. Relaxing in the Shade- Any beautiful space you design will be useless if you don’t include some shade. You can choose a design that uniquely fits you and your style. Here are a few options.
