When designing a landscaping plan for your front lawn a great option is to build raised garden beds. Raised garden beds are a great way to add depth and definition to your lawn while increasing the curb appeal of your property.
Raised garden beds are built using retaining walls that support soil laterally which will prevent it from sloping down in its natural state. These can be built as high as two feet or as small two inches depending on your design.
There are many aesthetic benefits to raised garden beds, but there are also many practical benefits as well. In many ways, the flowers and plants grown in a raised garden bed are easier to manage.
