Symmetrically Designed Front Door Entrance

Rows of Boxwood Shrubs Lead the Eye to the Entryway

The picture below shows a textbook example of symmetry in a landscape design.

Unlike the house in the prior picture, this one sets back enough from the street to invite more extensive landscaping. And the owners have taken their yard up on the invitation! The granite-slab pathway leading up to the front door entrance is lined with boxwood shrubs, drawing the viewer's eye to the entryway. Boxwood shrubs are very popular in such formal landscape designs. Symmetry is once again achieved at the entryway itself, using container-grown plants, and is perpetuated even in the uniformity of the foundation plantings. I'll provide further examples of the use of symmetry for front entries later in the photo gallery.
