This colorful Craftsman home has lots of curb appeal with a beautifully landscaped front yard. The terraced yard matches the terrain with the style of the house, creating a beautiful facade for this unique home.
This stone-framed home exudes curb appeal with a terraced front yard and traditional brick walkway. A classic stone mailbox adds to the charm, as do manicured hedges, soft ground covers and graceful mature trees.
The half-timbers and stucco siding on the second story of this home is a classic design element of the Tudor-revival style. Arched doorways, sloping-curved roof lines and leaded windows are also indicative of the style.
The landscape designers for this expansive property were among the first to use Southern Living's Sunshine Ligustrum. The brilliant yellow plant has a compact look and despite its delicate appearance is a hardy evergreen.
The modern front entrance of this Midcentury Modern home welcomes guests into the space. Instead of traditional landscaping, gravel, concrete and a few native, drought resistant plants create a low maintenance space that will be durable throughout California's dry summer months.
Nestled on a quiet hilltop, this Mediterranean style home boasts extraordinary views and seclusion. Terraced landscaping compliments the sloped front yard, allowing for unobstructed views from the home's multiple outdoor spaces.
This landscape design concept was based on the modern lines of the home and allows the elegant forms to transfer onto the ground plane. The driveway and connecting pedestrian paths are formed concrete pads with a simple broom finish in a series of squares and rectangles. The voids between the pads are neatly topped with gray beach pebbles and allow rainwater to flow through, minimizing runoff onto the street. The pockets of plantings near the front entry contain sculptural accent plants.
Lighting fixtures painted a soft teal complement the home's beige hues, while blue fescue grasses (Festuca glauca) echo the color of the lamp posts. Brown pots placed along the walkway tie the landscape, designed by Philip Thornburg of Winterbloom, back to the house.
