How to make the front entrance more welcoming? !
July 11, 2013 in Design Dilemma
This is a lovely, small home, in N. Cali. The front entrance, lawn, plants are neglected. I want to replace the lawn with a front courtyard, coming out square from the edge of the garage and across, with a gate entrance. Then ripe out the lawn and put some angled steps, leading to the sidewalk. put some more mature plants/trees/rocks/shrubs. My two questions - 1) will that look good and 2) can I put a patio cover over the front courtyard or will the house look like a cottage. Any other ideas welcome on how to make this front entrance say "welcome, look at me, I'm a nice place!" Thank you.
