Creating an entrance that feels warm and welcoming for you and those visiting is a great way of setting the tone for the rest of your home. Having an inviting entrance can really help to create a homely feel as well as adding kerb appeal to your property. From simple floral additions to eye-catching design features, here’s a few top tips to help you create a welcoming front garden.
Introduce an Arch
There is something special about having an arch in your garden, whether it’s at the front of the house or the back. Archways create a magical feel that enable you to enter a new space, welcoming you properly whilst adding to the overall aesthetic of the garden. You can introduce arches in a number of different ways, from trimmed bushes to classic wooden arches which you can often find at your local garden centre. When working with an archway, whether it’s greenery or wooden, you can really enhance that part of the garden and bring the space to life.

A Pathway to Home
Incorporating a path into your front garden is a beautiful way of leading the eye to the front of the property. Paths are ideal for creating a clear walkway to your front door, guiding those along the way to ensure they reach their destination. You can introduce paths through stunning stone flags, rustic gravel and stones or even with wooden slabs. Paths are really easy to introduce and even easier to decorate, with the option of lining them with gorgeous flowers to brighten the way and create an inviting feel from the start.

One way to really catch the eye and create a warm and welcoming entrance to your home is with the addition of climbers. By planting a climber alongside your front entrance, you can brighten the whole space up with flowers that really make the space pop with life and colour. This simple yet very effective option is a perfect way of adding kerb appeal whilst creating a focal point for your home. Visit your local gardening centre to see what climbers you could introduce to your front garden to give your property that homely feel.

Less is More
Whilst you want your front garden to have some key features that stand out from the crowd, you also want to keep things as minimalist and simple as possible to ensure you don’t take away from the beauty of your home itself. Having some stunning floral arrangements, a striking arch and stylish planters positioned neatly across your garden will really add a warm and welcoming feel to the space, without going over the top or looking crowded.
