No matter what size or shape your Main Line property is, there’s a Philadelphia residential landscape design that will suit your needs precisely. Odd shapes, changes in elevation or small spaces are no problem, for the creative and experienced designer. What is the garden of your dreams? Here are a few ideas to get your creative ideas flowing.
Focal Point Design
If you have a circular driveway or sidewalk, consider placing a few plants right in the center of it. This creates a focal point for your entryway and makes your front yard look more inviting. Use small plants so that your line of sight won’t be obstructed from either side. Consider adding a fountain, small statue or gazing ball in the center to help add even more visual appeal.
Boost the Curb Appeal
Transforming the front yard driveway, sidewalk and entry area into an interesting and attractive approach to your home may include adding flaming maple, ferns, and peonies to insert color to your front yard approach. A few curb appeal ideas for your Philadelphia residential landscape design may be to:
- Add year-round color to the gardens
- Clean walkway and entry areas
- Declutter the yard, and conceal unsightly items
- Seed dead grass spots, pull weeds, and add plants
- Paint or replace the mailbox, house numbers, entrance hardware and porch furniture
Changes in Grade or Elevation
Changes in elevation allow you to easily plant specimens of varying heights. At the top of your incline, consider adding some taller foundation plants or some dwarf fruit trees. In the middle, choose some smaller shrubs or ornamental grasses, and then follow them with attractive perennials or ground cover along the lowest level.(Image via Wikimedia)
