All are wonderful but I chuckle thinking the title could be making a beautiful entry more beautiful. For some of us who have simple entries, we need plants that don't grab you as you ring the door bell. So I have a planter that hangs from the side wall with ivy in it to cascade down A tri plant holder with geraniums in them and on the other side an ugly plastic container with an indoor plant. All of which should live when (not if) I forget to water them. Giving a bit of personality while being practical.

ngholm, having lived in CA most of my life, screened areas were not necessary.

But while looking for a house in FL, a screened patio/pool was a must!!! It's ok for those (like my husband, darn him) who don't get eaten alive by mosquitos but for those of us delicious people, it's a must.

Screened porches can be done in many ways. Like a screened patio with the metal struts. Or for a more 'front yard' look, you can have half wall and then screens, or even balustered railing with a screen behind. Or you can splurge on motorized screens if you don't need them all year round.

I'll bet you're going to be so happy you got away from the bugs while appreciating your front!
