Giving your home an exterior makeover doesn’t have to be a massive project, small changes can pack just as much punch.
The Landscape Company recently worked on a project where their client was looking for an attractive front door surround to make their home look a bit more inviting. The exterior of the house was already quite contemporary with white rendered walls and stylish black front door, but the existing paved entrance didn’t do the house justice.
The Landscape Company designed a small deck leading to the house that would have three different sized shrubs along each side to help create depth, separating the entrance from the tarmac driveway. The mixture of different colours, textures and sizes created an interesting focal point for the house.
Western Red Cedar was chosen for the decking because of the high quality and durability in high traffic areas. The rich colour tones also contrasted well with the rest of the front door surround, creating a really high end, contemporary feel to the design.
This project shows that you don’t need the most extravagant design or the most expensive materials to make a big change to how your house looks, it’s the detail that counts.
