Rock Display in Front Yard

Rocks are commonly used for landscaping front yards so it is not out of place to put up a rock display in yours. One thing to note is that the rock display should not be hidden or covered by flowers or grasses. They should stand vertically and ensure the color you pick for writing the house number pops. For that, you should pick a contrasting color from that of the rock.

Painted Number on Front Door

When people are trying to locate a house, the front door is one of the places they check. Why don’t you give them something to look at. Have your house number painted directly on your door.
