Creating an Eye-Catching Driveway

Your driveway is the first thing that people see when visiting your home. Making sure your driveway is properly landscaped can make your home look more welcoming, and provide beautiful scenery for anyone who pulls up to your home.

Landscaping driveways can consist of both softscape and hardscape. The hardscape will consist of mostly the fences and walls around the driveway, while the softscape can include flower beds, ornamental trees, groundcovers, and shrubs. With endless possibilities when it comes to landscaping your driveway, you can create a personalized look to welcome people to your home.

There are many different variations when it comes to the hardscape of your driveway. You have the option to run the walls parallel to the driveway, or choose to allow them to perpendicularly meet. This can be done by attaching gates to the walls, or by adding a decorative arch to the wall.

The softscape variations that are available to landscaping your driveway are limitless. You can create a grand entrance to your home by softscaping the entire length of your driveway, or you can simply accent the driveway in a variety of ways, which will also help to cut down on the cost of the landscaping. Softscaping is a great way to emphasize certain areas of your driveway that you want to focus on. By planting colorful flowers along the sides of the driveway are a great way to draw the viewer’s gaze up onto the property. You can also use flowers along your driveway to direct eyes away from areas that may not be as attractive. By curving the flowers in a different direction, you will be able to enhance a different feature, and take attention away from anything that is a little unsightly.
