The space in front of your home is all about curb appeal
Here at Opulands, we have a passion for amazingly designed and incredibly well-built front yards, and for us that means much more than just installing a front lawn trimmed with shrubs and flowers.
Today’s front yards in the Bay Area add the contrast of hardscape and beautiful interlocking pavers – whether it be in the form of a paver driveway, walkway or porch – to complete the front yard landscape and create jaw-dropping beauty.
With a wide variety of colors, shapes and textures to choose from, the customization options for your driveway, walkway and porch are virtually limitless. Add to that the decisions that need to be made for your front yard landscaping, it becomes obvious that the overall outcome of your project will to a large degree depend on the expertise that your designer or your contractor brings to the table.
Through careful evaluation and visits to showrooms with our customers, we attempt to make the best match with the home’s architecture and its color, as well as the homeowner’s preferences and future goals. This is how we design and build front yards that are in alignment with the property and create an authentic, inspiring visual, welcoming the homeowners and their guests.
Bay Area home owners love paver driveways
Paver driveways are more durable, more cost-effective, and definitely much more beautiful than asphalt or concrete driveways.
Concrete slabs are prone to cracking and breaking, which then require patching to fix. Although upfront concrete costs may be slightly lower per square foot, the maintenance, time, and energy invested in repairs add up over time, making concrete a less effective choice for your backyard long-term.
On the contrary, pavers are designed to last a lifetime with fewer repairs and a lot less maintenance.

Front yard lawn conversions are happening all over the Bay Area
With the intensifying drought, we are seeing a large rise in front-yard lawn conversions. By converting one’s lawn into drought-tolerant landscapes, Bay Area homeowners can significantly cut back on their water use and utility bills. Add with the installation of pollinator and bird-friendly trees and plants, your garden can quickly become a hotspot for birds and butterflies.
What better time to do this than now. Call us today to improve your curb appeal, cut your utility bill, and conserve water.
Synthetic or natural lawn installation – both are popular
Whether you’re looking for a lush low-maintenance lawn or your own personal putting green, synthetic lawn is a versatile choice that is growing in popularity among Bay Area homeowners.
But if you love mowing and the fresh smell of cut grass, we install natural lawns too.

Variety prevails with endless front yard design options
Some like Picasso. Others Monet. Your front yard can be as unique as you and your tastes are.
We can design gardens for a wide range of interests and styles such as low-maintenance gardens, Japanese gardens, Mediterranean gardens, formal gardens, cottage gardens, or modern style. We will help you choose colors that match or contrast one another and complement the hardscape.
