Jeannette--Color, absolutely. I love color, And after the photo was taken, I did put out a couple huge pots loaded with flowers and greenery. Great ideas.
Lou B--I adore the pergola idea. I have wanted an entry and that would do it. Detached is
Thanks so much to all of you,,so very nice.
Find plants and flowers that are drought resistant and love full sun. I say drought resistant because your soil probably dries pretty quickly since it's in the full sun.
I also like the idea of tall ornamental grasses
And loving the idea of a Pergola! You have a blank slate to work with so you can have alot of fun!
good luck and let us know what you do!
The pergola is a great idea, one that you may want to expand over the front window - dress up
I also like ornamental grasses, they are care free - although they do tend to want o take over. They sure are an eco-friendly solution to large areas - no mowing, watering or much fertilizer needs.
Send us some pics when you are done. Oh - I almost forgot to mention, you may also want to place a nice red maple to the right of the door - out in the lawn area - do some nice landscaping around it - it looks like you have some sort of tall planting in the bed close to the house - if it is a tree - I would strongly consider moving it out farther - way to close to the house when it gets big.
It looks like from the photograph that the sidewalk to your front door runs right next to your house. I think a winding path from a point about mid-way on your driveway would look much more appealing, and give you the opportunity to develop a planted area, perhaps anchored by a small ornamental tree or flowering shrub, in front of your picture window.
