The Front Yard Is the New Backyard: How To Prepare Your Space for Warm Weather
A private backyard will always be a desirable home amenity, but the coronavirus pandemic has shown that the front yard deserves just as much attention. With the pandemic limiting our ability to see friends and family inside the home, the front yard has become the hub for safely socializing with our loved ones. From drive-by celebrations to socially distanced cocktail parties on the porch, the front yard is stealing the show as the new entertaining space—and it’s a change that’s likely here to stay.
“Homeowners now view their front yard as an additional gathering and entertaining space, and are adding decor upgrades to help them stand out in the neighborhood,” says Mark Feldman, chief home officer and general manager at Riverbend Home.
“A few simple changes can convert the front yard into a great social space to hang out with family and neighbors, or a quiet area to unwind,” says Feldman. “Plus, the added curb appeal is a huge plus for potential home buyers.”
