In terms of square feet, the driveway can be the largest element of your landscape. Your driveway serves two important functions to your home landscape. It not only has to hold up to the day-to-day stress of heavy vehicles, but it should also enhance and lead the viewer’s eye directly to your front door. Ignoring your driveway would be the equivalent of having a long scar that runs through your landscape.
The driveway can be accentuated with the use of a small hardscape wall or an ornamental entry way. What would otherwise be a monotone driveway can be enhanced by lining each side of the driveway with plantings.
