Front Yard Trees That Add Curb Appeal

front yard trees best - with house

Are you thinking about adding a tree to your front yard? Front yard trees add curb appeal and even increase your property value! Luckily you have a lot of options. Flowering trees and ornamental trees are most often planted in front yards. If you have more space, you can add a shade tree with gorgeous fall color. No matter what type of tree you choose, planting a tree will beautify your yard and home.

Here are some of our favorite front yard trees:

 

Front Yard Trees

Crape Myrtles

Crape Myrtles are easily recognizable with their multi-trunks, peeling but smooth bark, and months of colorful blooms. These trees are mainly grown in the southern United States, but some varieties are more cold hardy than others and can grow in cooler regions. Crape myrtles are heat, humidity, and drought tolerant. They are available in a variety of colors.

Dogwood Trees

Dogwood Trees are one of the most popular front yard trees because of their amazing spring display. Choose from red, pink, or white flowers. Dogwood trees are adaptable and drought tolerant. Do not plant them in a wet site. Cornus florida trees are native and flower before the leaves emerge while Cornus kousa trees tend to have more pest and disease resistance and bloom later in spring when the leaves are already on the tree.

Evergreen Trees

You probably want to consider smaller evergreen trees in the front yard like: junipers, hollies, or arborvitae. We really like Emerald Green Arborvitae, Blue Point Juniper, Nellie Stevens Holly, and Oakland Holly for front yards. If you have a large yard you also have options like cypress, thuja, spruce, or cedars. Evergreen trees offer year-round interest and tend to be very low maintenance.

For pink blooms consider the Kwanzan or the Okame Cherry Tree. Cherry trees are easy to maintain, but can have problems with disease. They make a beautiful addition to any front yard.
