You might have an existing front yard walkway that is close to your house with a narrow foundation planting bed. In this case, consider planting on the other side of your walkway to bring plantings closer to the street. This has the added advantage of minimizing your lawn while adding additional front yard curb appeal…more plants closer to the street! If you have the option of a wider front bed along your house, layer it.
