Just 3 concrete steps up and the main 3 x 4 concrete landing. Am able to put a wreath on the door, but I want something more inviting. Any suggestions?

    I've seen pictures of people putting patterned tiles on the vertical area between the steps , and it looked great !

    Hi Connie; Build a topiary in a flower pot to sit on the landing, add some log solar lights on each of the steps, put a homemade 'Welcome' sign out in front of and to one side of the steps, and let your imagination run wild. You can even paint some stencils on the steps and landing - whatever design you like. Good Luck!

    Love all 3 of the above suggestions. Also add colorful flower pots. If you have a brown thumb like me, you can put succulents in them. They are difficult to kill unless you have extreme cold, then bring it inside.

      Thank you Kathy, unfortunately, I live in the southwest part of Indiana, and it gets really cold here in the fall and winter. Maybe I'll try some tiered pots and put in artificial plants. Real ones as the seasons change.
