For most homes, an entry landscape is the most public garden space. An entry landscape, whether simple or complex, should draw your eye toward the front door. The design sets the mood. An entry landscape offers the opportunity to create a transition from an open garden or lawn without a ceiling to the more intimate, human scale of the interior of the home. It is important to consider is how well your entry landscape reflects and complements the architecture of your home. The planting design of an entry landscape requires careful thought, from choosing the right size, temperament and position of plants that create the scale you want, to choosing the plants themselves. Visitors waiting to enter your home will be close to the selected plant material. Take advantage of this captive audience to use a range of colors, textures and shapes to hold their interest and maybe even surprise them. Fragrant plants are ideal for entry landscapes. They smell good for your guests and scent your house every time the door is opened.
