Front Entry Sidewalk
Ideas For Access, Invitation, and Accent leading to the front door
This design provides a lot of easy access to the home with the front entryway as well as the driveway. It does a great job to define the entry and lead folks right to the front door. It's very open, vivible, and safe.
The larger trees, when grown in, will help keep the home from appearing too massive. However, while the large conifers to the right also provide a larger vertical element, they also carry some safety risks by hiding the front of the home where there is window access. It's a great place to hide while breaking in or planning an attack.
The bed areas along the sidewalk are all defined where plantings are confined to bedding areas. This makes clean up and trimming around the front entry so much easier than having to trim aroung individual plants which is time consuming and can damage plants.
