The front entry is the gateway to your home. The entry should welcome guests or be a comfortable place to pause before saying good night.
A front entry can be a porch, stoop or landing (the most common), or a patio. Occasionally, they are outdoor living spaces with a dining area surrounded by a garden or a quiet place to visit with neighbors. The front door should be the focal point. The path between the street (or driveway) and the door should be obvious. This can be achieved through architectural details, color, lighting, plants, or any combination thereof.
A Southview Design landscape architect or landscape designer can help you design a front entry that complements the style and colors of your home. Does your front entry enhance your home's curb appeal? Provide a place to leave packages? Give visitors shelter from the rain and wind?
Your perfect outdoor living space begins with a simple conversation. Let’s talk about your landscaping project!

Perched on a bluff above the Minnesota River, this Eden Prairie landscape design has unbeatable views, two fireplaces, and patios for dining and sunbathing.
Empty nesters in the process of moving back to Minnesota from California, these homeowners envisioned a tranquil and relaxing backyard with a walk-out patio with wood burning fireplace. Upstairs, they wished for a private dining patio close to their kitchen.
The focus of this project was to make the back yard wheelchair accessible and add curb appeal. The project was completed over two years. The front yard was completed first, then the backyard.
