Flower Bed Width
How wide should a flower bed be at the front of the house? I read somewhere it depends on the height of the porch or height of the house.

There are no hard and fast rules as to the width of planting beds in front of a house. It really is a personal decision that includes how much time you want to spend caring for it. One consideration is can you reach in to weed, deadhead and prune? A good idea is to bring a picture of the front yard to a local garden center or nursery and see if they can give them some suggestions. There isn't just a one size fits all answer to this question. You can also hire a garden designer to come up with a plan for your particular situation.
