Front Garden Design Trends with DECO

Your front yard is the first thing passers-by and guests see when they approach your home, so curb appeal is very important if you want to make a good impression. Here are DECO’s top trends for front garden designs that will leave your neighbours in awe. 

LOW MAINTENANCE IS BEST

The more time-poor Australians become, the more we want low-maintenance yards that provide maximum impact with minimum effort. Forego timber with DecoWood to create warmth and style in your front garden. DecoWood has the natural appearance of real timber that is effortless to preserve – no painting, staining or oiling is required. The powder coat finish is 50% more durable than standard powder coating and can be applied to a range of aluminium products from the DECO range including:

Design Tip: If you have DecoWood garage door, match your DecoDeck with the same colour!

DECORATIVE SCREENING

DecoSlat timber-look slats are a great product for creating trendy privacy screens. Decorative outdoor screening is a fantastic product to hide unsightly elements in front yard such as power boxes, as well as softening the look of your home with the aesthetic of beautiful timber.  

CREATIVE FENCES WITH BATTENS

Add some flair to your front fence with DecoBatten aluminium battens in a trendy finish. Tie in other design elements of your home with a choice of woodgrain, concrete or rust-look finish for DecoBatten. 

Rendered front walls: We recommend using our two-piece ‘Quick Click’ system which can be easily applied to the surface of your font wall – simply screw the base to wall and clip on the batten cover.

Framed structure: If you are applying DecoBatten to a framed structure, we recommend the one-piece batten that can be easily back fixed through the support structure into the batten.

FRONT PORCH DECKING

If you have an old worn timber deck or plain concrete porch, freshen it up with timber-look aluminium decking by DecoDeck. The walkway to your home should be visually appealing and inviting for your visitors. Available in 18 natural timber-look colours and a concrete finish, DecoDeck will suit any style of home. DecoDeck is also made from 100% solid aluminium and is therefore certified non-combustible - making it ideal for homes located in bushfire prone areas.

ARCHITECTURAL DETAILS

DecoClad cladding installed to your ceiling or gable ends creates a luxurious, contemporary look to a home’s facade. While DecoClad has the same beautiful appearance as timber, it doesn’t require the maintenance or have the susceptibility to fading and rotting that timber does. DecoClad ceiling features and gable ends achieve a timeless design aesthetic that will be loved for many years. 

Design Tip: DecoClad V-Groove cladding is our favourite profile for a ceiling feature.

MIX MATERIALS 

Mixing materials is hugely popular with today’s contemporary home designs. With DECO’s wide range of quality finishes for aluminium, homeowners can work with different colours and textures to create a more custom look rather than a standard project home appearance. Homeowners can easily add a level of personality and architectural design to their yard designs by using a combination of timber, rust and concrete finished products. 

Design idea: Apply our new rust-look finish for aluminium slats to create planter boxes and garden beds.
