The space located between the front of the house and the fence from the side of street is called the front garden. Its width can be different, but as a rule, it is somewhere from 4 to 8 meters. The front garden is separated from the street by a dense hedge which stops sound, but is not very high to avoid creating too much shade and a visual compression of the space in the front garden itself. The front wall of house can be covered with either lianas or vines to help create a comfortable green “room”. The interior of this “room” will depend on the selected style of design. This can be with a simple lawn, with any solitary plant, coniferous tree or bush with a compact crown or a large decorative grassy plant. If the front garden is located on the northern side of the house, then shade enduring plants should be planted there. In the case that there are hanging branches of large trees which cover sky then a shade enduring lawn is preferred. If the irregular style is selected, then it is possible plant the plants in a free order, but in this case one ought not to forget about the final composition. Front gardens are frequently designed in the regular style where paths with a mixed border, flower border or flowers beds which follow along them are common. Front gardens can also be designed using the country style.

Whichever style of design for the front garden you choose, it is still necessary to try to obtain a mental image of what you want your front garden to look like. In essence, this task consists of the creation of a calm, comfortable and orderly main entrance zone in which there is no superfluous enthusiasm or stridency and a feeling of rest and harmony with the nature surrounding you exists.
