How to "Lead the Viewer's Eye" Using Entryway Plantings

By

In landscaping for front door entrances, you are trying to achieve several objectives. For instance, you want to:

  • Match the entryway planting to your house style and wider surroundings
  • Create a welcoming environment (unless your goal is privacy)
  • Lead the viewer's eye from the street to the front door entrance

In these pictures of landscaping showing front door entrances, I'll provide examples of entryway plantings showing how each of these objectives can be met. Commentary accompanies each of the pictures.
