A DIY Front Yard Makeover the Neighbors Will Adore

DIY Front Yard Ideas

These cool ideas will make your house stand out from the rest of the neighborhood, thanks to your ingenious and creative front yard makeovers.

Don’t worry, I promise I won’t tell the neighbors you got the front yard ideas from this roundup. Your secret’s safe with me.

1. Defined Walkway


Tired of your grass covering your walkway? Try defining the path with rocks. Aside from having a hard surface to step on and keeping everyone from frequently stepping on the healthy grass, this path only adds more beauty to your lawn.

Tip: I recommend using red lava rocks to define your walkway. Not only are they vibrantly red but they’ll also help with your drainage.

2. DIY House Number Sign


This DIY yard project functions as both a planter and a house number sign. Just don’t forget to secure the boards with nails after you glue the pieces in.

Doing so will prevent a mess by securing the sides of the planter box.

3. Cedar Cube Landscape Lights


Protect the spike bottoms of your landscape lights by placing them in cedar cubes. These will look amazing when lit on your front lawn.

The uneven placement of the lights is unique and adds elegance to your front yard.

Tip: Bring your solar panels back to life with a coat of clear brushing lacquer.

4. Welcome Post Sign


Show everyone how friendly you are with a little welcome sign you can hang on the fence. There's no need to spend a fortune on building a beautiful fence to hang your welcome sign.

A simple unused wooden pallet from around the house will do the trick.

Tip: Don’t have enough space in your front yard to make a fence? No worries, 3-5 pallet boards on the lawn will do.

5. Tin Can Lanterns


Remove the labels of your cans and place them in the freezer to help them hold their shape. Once a sheet of ice has formed, poke holes in the can using a hammer and nail.

Attach a handle, paint the can, and insert a tea light to finish off your lantern.

6. Planter Wall Display


Display your favorite flowers on your front porch. This planter wall display makes use of the following: treated lattice, S hooks, wax, planters, and planter pots — all of which you can get from your local hardware store.

7. Easy Water Garden


When making a mini water garden, it’s important to take note of the depth and material of your container. Look for a pot at least 6 inches deep and made of either clay, steel, metal, ceramic, or stone.

A variety of containers will add some color to your garden.

8. Raised Garden Bed


Need help building a raised garden bed? This tutorial will teach you all you need to know.

It's a great start to work on your woodworking skills. This project is also an eye-catching part in your open yard your neighbors can't help but admire.

Tip: Prevent weeds from growing by placing barrier fabric on the ground. Remember to do this before building your raised garden bed.

9. Tree-Ring


Did you know a tree-ring can turn into additional seats if you add more bricklayers on top? Why not try DIYing one on a weekend and see the difference it brings to a front yard?

It's a simple project and one of the best landscaping ideas for your tree.

Tip: If you’re making a tree ring for a young tree, be sure to leave ample space for when it matures into a bigger tree.

10. Sunny Bench


Paint an old bench in a sunny yellow color to give your front yard a pop of color. Its vibrant color will match the plants and flowers around it.

By the way, don’t forget to give the wooden bench a light sanding first before you paint it.

11. Pallet Picket Fence


Looking for low-cost landscaping ideas? Mark your front yard with a picket fence. For a more polished look, take the time to give your fence a coat of white paint.

Doing so will bring out the bright green colors of your lawn as well.

12. Pocket Gardens


Not enough floor space for your plant and flower pots? No problem! Show off your lovely garden blooms in these pocket gardens.

These are great for front yards that aren’t as spacious, as they don’t occupy floor space.

13. Front Steps Improvement


Improve the front steps of your porch through a little DIY project. Buy a few gallons of concrete paint enough to complete the makeover for your front steps.

It's also a great idea to choose a color which is similar to the exterior walls of your house.

Tip: Reduce slips by sprinkling a bit of sand on your stairs’ last coat of paint. This will add a layer of resistance to the steps to avoid unwanted falls.

14. Mailbox Makeover


Give your mailbox a makeover by slipping over a cast stone post around the main post and base. The materials can come from extra cast stone used in your other house projects.

This will make for a sturdier mailbox as well.

15. Hose Holder


DIY hose holder will prevent any slips from unattended hose lines on the lawn. Don't forget to screw the wall mount holder tightly.

You’ll want it to be sturdy enough to hold the weight of the hose.

16. 5-Minute Macrame Planters


Talk about cool front yard DIY ideas? Hang these macrame planters from your patio to make a beautiful front yard accent.

All you need to get started are the following: a pair of scissors, some macrame cord, and a plant to hang.

Tip: Not a fan of terra-cotta plant pots? You can hang a terrarium as well.

17. Porch Swing


Dave made a porch swing as an anniversary gift before and I’ve loved it ever since I first laid my eyes on it. It's so special to us, we've actually incorporated it into our schedule by making sure we spend at least 15 minutes out on the swing once a week.

It’s our own little way of squeezing in some one on one time.

Tip: Dave recommends using heavy-duty swing hangers when attaching the porch swing to the ceiling. You’ll definitely want something that can hold a good amount of weight.

18. Upcycled Milk Can Planter


Recycle a milk can and turn it into a planter vase. Give it a sleek look by painting over it with either white paint or black paint.

If you're feeling artsy, you could even use chalkboard paint and just set your creativity free.

19. Brick Edging


Keep your flower bed in place with the help of garden edging. If you're worried about the expenses, don't be.

This tutorial shows you a guide on how to use leftover house tiles as your garden edging material.

Tip: Use half the length of your house tiles when measuring the depth of your trench.

20. Farmhouse Bench


Build a farmhouse bench for less than $20 with this guide. If you find yourself liking the project a lot, you can even make a matching one to place in your backyard.

This project will definitely save you money if you're planning to purchase a new bench for the exterior of your home.

21. Address Number Post Planter


Aside from displaying your house number beside your door, you can also DIY an address number post planter. Personally, I love how the planter adds a pop of vibrancy to an ordinary number post.

Tip: Don’t forget to protect your post with a coat of Rust-oleum after. It’ll help the post last all throughout the different weather conditions.
