A Large, Welcoming Front Yard
In so many new homes, the garage and driveway dominates the front yard. This practical landscape plan directs attention where it belongs: on the entry.
Free Garden Plan
Our free Planting Guide for this landscape plan includes a larger version of the illustration, a detailed layout diagram, a set of five regional plant lists, lists of alternatives for each plant, and complete instructions for installing the garden.

Having a prominent garage is a fact of life in modern suburbia. This landscape plan directs attention away from the driveway and onto the front entry area. Large trees provide shade without overwhelming the house and yard. And the shrubs and evergreens provide privacy from the sidewalk and neighboring yards.
