Since the driveway is the entrance to your property, you’ll want to make sure that it’s pleasingly designed to serve its purpose without being a distraction to the rest of your landscape. Therefore, it’s important that you choose the right features, but make sure that it’s simplicity is one that is welcoming to the property.
With that said, here are a few tips that you’ll want to consider about the landscape before laying the brinks, cement or cobblestones in front of your home for a driveway:
- Decide if you want the landscape items to run the entire length of the driveway, or if you just want to accent the entrance. For an example, would you rather two palm trees at the beginning of the entrance; or would you rather accent the entire driveway with a flower bed.
- Before landscaping, consider your neighborhood. Do you live in a neighborhood that has lots of children? If so, you might want to eliminate the flowerbed at the entrance. A better choice could be something such as a small rock garden.
- Be sure that the landscaping ideas you have will not interfere with footpaths or walkways of those who reside in the house.
