- A long flowing walkway that greets your guests is perfect for catching the eye. It is also nice for your guests to be lead to the entrance on a comfortable walkway with a wide opening halfway down the driveway or even at the street.
- Using structured foundation plantings with perennial color layers in the front, and adding larger vertical elements on the corners of the home can help to better anchor your home and reduce that monolithic feeling
