A border of ornamental grasses and purple flowers line the edge of a driveway that twists itself through the front yard. Olive trees, lavender and a variety of grasses add Italian flair to this landscape design.
Large stones give a beautifully natural quality to this bright yard area. Stone steps and a small walkway create a path from the grass to the driveway for a fluid transition toward the home. The healthy green plant life looks extra vivid against the coarse, natural gray and brown tones of the rock.
This Cape Cod home's outdoor areas incorporate lots of stately brick details, crisply contrasted by bright white. The driveway, seen here, uses the same paver-plus-grass layout as found in the backyard's patios.
