11 Gate Landscaping Ideas – A Hearty Welcome
Gate is often the first contact that an outsider has with a property he or she is about to visit. From the popular perspective, it is the first indication of the skills of the one who manages the house and the land behind it. We will not bend today on the gate itself, but take a close look at the space around and the various means by which it can be arranged so as to give a visitor a heartily said “welcome”. So here are some gate landscaping ideas.
A wrought iron gate framed by two columns of stone with two lanterns on them can be a solution to bring more aesthetic value to the afore-mentioned area. The pavement adds texture to the landscape, while trees and their lowering tops over the gate tame the austere décor a bit.
Reused bricks can give rise to some gorgeous landscapes that draw attention thanks to the dynamic composition. A brick fence, alley and curbs made from same material ensure a uniform decor that goes well with colorful plants around.
A classic wooden fence, which it is a popular choice worldwide, and a gate stylized enough to attract the eye from the street. Wood and iron again join forces for a picture with an aesthetic addition hard to achieve otherwise.
A colorful gate, under an archway covered in climbing plants and a stone driveway bordered by flowers – these are the elements of a decor that speaks thousands of words about the good taste and hospitality of an owner that goes for this arrangement.
For those who dare more than the conventional limits allow, stone, wood and iron can provide an original solution to mark the entire decor around.
A high wooden fence, designed to stop prying eyes, and an iron gate that allows, however, a glimpse of the backyard. An alley of stone slabs, preceded by a pebble sector, completes the trio of classical construction materials.
Flowers and plants, in general, are a constant part of planning this space. In the image below, colored flowers seem to bring a balance in the image dominated by an arch of brick and iron gate, over which nature extends its arms slowly.
At the end, here are more ideas inspiring you in decorating this space often ignored.
