Welcome to the front door. Many park here, below, the family parking court, then walk to the back door.
Perhaps a pair of historic marble urns at the granite step? An invitation of welcome to the front door. Not in the original plan but something shouting possibility.
By car, above/below, a drop off at the brick path. Another possibility shouting!
Front door, above.
Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
History & subtlety are major goals in this garden. For decades I've known if mistakes are made they must be on the side of Too Simple. Easier & cheaper to add something later than to undo paths, trees, bushes.... This isn't a mistake merely the garden speaking its wisdom and us paying attention.
