A front lawn is often ignored when it comes to décor items. Most front lawns include grass, a tree or two, and at most, a flower bed. However, a large front lawn can be a very useful space to add something interesting and relaxing while still keeping an attractive style for your home. All that you need to do is choose just the right relaxing item to include on your lawn.
Consider a Bench or Swing
If you have a favorite tree on the lawn that offers a shady place to rest, then consider a swing or a stone bench. Even if you are only able to sit there a few minutes a week, you will find it quite relaxing and it will be very beautiful as a décor element on your lawn. Be sure to choose a bench or swing that is in keeping with the style of your home. Obviously, if you have a modern home, a Victorian bench may look out of place. The vice versa is true as well.
Choose an Outdoor Fountain
There are many different fountains you can choose from depending on how much space you have on your lawn. Of course, if you have a very large lawn and it is open, then you can choose a very large and dramatic outdoor fountain right on the lawn. Something two or three tiered will be extremely eye catching from the road and you will enjoy the beautiful sound of the falling and splashing water. If you have a smaller lawn, then there are outdoor fountain options that take up little space, and can be surrounded by flower beds as well.
Think about a Flower Bed
If you want to do something not quite as dramatic, then consider a flower bed. If you have a large, flat lawn, then consider creating height with the flower bed. Choose flowers and flowering bushes that will get fairly tall and then surround them with smaller and shorter plants. If you have a classically designed home, a rose garden can be a beautiful accent and relaxing addition to your lawn.
Do not overlook your lawn when it comes to adding relaxing elements and creating something eye catching. There are many different things you can add to your lawn and they will add visual interest as well as a relaxing effect. Whether you add a bench, a fountain, or a flower bed, stick to one or two items for the most visual interest.
