First impressions are important! This entry garden greets your guests with beauty in all four seasons. A fragrant viburnum, evergreen boxwoods, and a small flowering tree create the backdrop for long-blooming perennials. Across the walk, annual flowers and spring bulbs mingle in a narrow strip. Your own front walk may not match the shape of this curved walkway, so feel free to adapt the plan to your front yard's configuration. This garden needs a half day or more of sunlight, making it suitable for houses that face east, south, or west.
