Landscaping Ideas

Here are some great landscaping ideas to get your entryway looking fresh.

Your entryway can say a lot about you. Right when people pull up to your home, they’re getting a first impression of who you are as a person. Do you want to come off as unkempt and messy or someone who takes care of themselves and is inviting? You want to give your guests the best first impression you can, and landscaping impacts much more than most people think. Here are some landscaping ideas to help boost the appearance of your home’s entryway.

Building Up

One of our favorite landscaping ideas is vertical elements. Growing tall shrubs and trees will add some dynamics to your yard. Make sure you pick the right kinds of trees for your type of home, as you want something that will match and doesn’t look out of place. Work closely with a landscaping company to get the right look you need.

Strategic Placement

We’re all bound to have some spots on our lawn that we’d rather not everyone see. This may include walkways, garden hoses, meters, heating and cooling elements, or even just patches of open ground that are too big. Using shrubs and trees is a great way to cover up any blemishes that you aren’t proud of.


Among all of the landscaping ideas out there, using a variety of perennials is one of the best. They provide spots of color year round and will brighten up your yard. If you use a wide enough variety of them, your yard will continue to look amazing throughout the entire year!


Not everything has to be a bold statement. Small accents, like shrubs near your front door, can do a whole lot to improve your look. Your home will have greater curb appeal and you’ll be the talk of the neighborhood!
