3 Ideas for the Perfect Driveway, Scioto, Ohio

Your driveway the first and most important opportunity to show off your landscaping prowess to guests. A well-designed driveway can add grandeur, quirkiness, or a warm welcome depending on the style you choose, so working with an experienced, professional landscaping team is essential.

3 Landscaping Ideas for Your Driveway

1. Grand Entrances

An ornate metal gate entrance is a wonderfully attractive way to focus eyes on your driveway. Use steel or iron if you want the gate motorized, and have light aluminum if it’s manual. Hedges, fences, or walls that lead to your driveway will lead people’s eyes to the entrance. Also, a circular, or horseshoe, driveway, can create an elegant, high-end feel.

2. Unusually Sized Features 

LandscapingUnexpected features draw people’s interest. Miniature trees, such as the Korean Lilac, or dwarf-sized plants, can create a little wonderland inside your garden. If you’re looking for the reverse effect, giant rocks or bushes in novelty-sized plant pots can add a quirky dimension.

3. Flowerbeds

Flowers bloom seasonally, so it’s an excellent idea to explore planting options that give you flowering coverage throughout the year. Some people like to theme their beds, opting for country garden blooms in one area, and something more exotic in another. A professional landscaping team will be able to advise you on your best options based on the local climate, soil, and the look you’re trying to achieve.
