Does the front entry to your home need a new, fresh look? Has it become tired looking and not as welcoming as you wish it would. Fear not, we offer 7 was to revive it and make you proud to arrive home every day.

Flower Pots

Flower pots come in so many interesting shapes and colors these days that they are practically works of art on their own. Add an interesting assortment of plants and it becomes a conversation piece. The best part is it can be changes with each passing season creating many new looks throughout the year.


Landscape Lighting

Although changing or adding landscape lighting may not affect how your entry looks during the day, it will pay huge dividends at night. Not only welcoming, good landscape lighting improves safety and security.



10 Signs You May Have A Drainage ProblemManage Rain Water

This may seem like an odd thing to add to this list, but water in the wrong places can speed up the decline of any landscape. Excess water leads to diseases on garden plants and can cause mold and fungus to grow on hardscapes. Moving the water away can include re-grading or taking downspouts underground with piping.

Cover The Stoop

Next time you are at your front door, look down. Is our front stoop made of ugly old concrete that is pithing? Is it sinking due to settlement. Why not cover it with flagstone or brick pavers for a fresh look?



Intoduce New Plants

Nothing spruces up a garden like new plants. Remove any tired plants and install new, vibrant plants that either offer flowers or foliage color. Is there room for a few annuals to give some “pop” during the season or would a massing of colorful annuals make a bold statement?


Make A New Walkway

Getting from the driveway or street to the front door should be a journey. From flagstone to the infinite choices in brick pavers, your front walkway can welcome both you and guests to your front door in style. From informal to formal, there is a great new layout just for you.



A Complete Re-Design

This is the biggest change you can make. Sometimes, you just have to start from scratch.

Don’t go it alone, our Landscape Designers are well versed in helping you with any of these projects to make your front entry come alive.
