The design brief for this garden was to create an inviting entry with a woodland feel that would complement the home's earthy color scheme and thoughtful architectural details. Majestic Sequoia sempervirens 'Aptos Blue' (Aptos Blue Coastal Redwood), with its pendant deep blue-green branches, shields the expanded porch from the afternoon sun. Selected for its ability to look good in sun or shade, Carex divulsa (Berkeley sedge) makes a lush ground cover, weaving through the trees and along the new slate walk. In fall, muhlenbergia capillaris explodes with feathery pink plumes.

June Scott Design added this to Upgrade Your Front Yard for Curb Appeal and More
First StepsDecide what you want. Think about the overall goal of the renovation and whether your objectives are short- or long-term. Are you freshening up plantings to sell your home soon, or are you making long-term improvements, such as revamping paths or a driveway to improve circulation and access? Determine your budget. Early in the process, you will not know how much your renovations will cost, but you need to have some idea of what you can and want to spend. A general rule is to spend 10 percent of your home’s value on landscaping. Get and save ideas. Browse front yard photos. (Tip: Select your metro area on the left side of the Houzz Photos page.) Then save your favorites in an ideabook.Get help if you need it. Find landscape architects and landscape contractors in your area.More: How to Replace Your Lawn With a Garden
