New Entryways in New London
Your front door supplies your home’s first impression. Living landscaping around your entryway can dramatically improve the area’s appearance while making it welcoming to anyone who may be visiting. Entryway landscaping gives you the opportunity to be creative and express your own sense of style and taste. With some help from JCB Designscapes, your New London home can have the grand entrance that it deserves.
The first step to establishing the foundation of your entryway is attractive and inviting hardscaping. You'll want to be sure that your front walk is wide enough for two people walking side by side and that the porch is big enough for people to enter comfortably. It's also helpful if the porch area is big enough to have large planter pots on either side of your door. Finally, well-placed landscape lighting helps highlight your New London entryway at all hours while providing safety and easy access for anyone who might visit. Hardscape additions should always be thought out and well designed. The installation team at JCB Designscapes will help turn your ideas into a workable plan.
With the permanent fixtures in place, you can move on to living landscaping. Plants can pull the eye toward the doorway, softening and framing the entrance of your New London home. Flower beds will give visitors a sensory treat as they approach the door - sights, smells, and textures are key to that experience. If you have a walkway leading to your front door, ornamental trees can create a defined path and even provide shade. Low hedges can also flank your walk to show the way to your front door.
To keep your entrance open and inviting, it's important to choose landscaping that will not quickly become overgrown but rather matures within a determined space. Evergreen trees such as arbor vitae work well as entry features because they grow thickly but not too quickly. This makes them easy to shape and prune. JCB can help choose plants that won’t outgrow their spaces, create litter on walkways or look bad during winter.
While trees and shrubs establish themselves more and more with each passing year, rotating flower beds provide the opportunity to give your entry a unique look in every season. Spring blooms like daisies can be switched out for mums later in the season. This gives your entry a fresh, new look and color scheme as the year progresses.
Your front entrance is the most visible part of your home. Expertly designed and installed landscaping from JCB can make your front door memorable for anyone who might stop by.
