About Waterfalls In Front Yards

Water garden designs aren't always a good addition for a front yard

The front yard landscape isn't usually the best place for a waterfall or water feature. Though it's hard to see, this yard does have a large waterfall as a main feature and focal point. While it may be a common sight in some areas, it's not the most practical spot to place one.

Generally, waterfalls and ponds are created for a relaxing atmosphere in areas where they can be enjoyed. Usually in a backyard, courtyard, patio, or garden. While this pond does provide some unique curb appeal to this home, It's very unlikely that it will become a favorite area for relaxing and gathering.

When creating your design, always consider the amount of time you're willing to give to take care of your landscaping or garden. A waterfall and pond like this requires a bit of maintenance. You may want to give more of your maintenance schedule to the areas like your front yard where you'll spend most of your time. Not to mention your budget.
