Create an Inviting Garden Entrance

Welcome your guests, mark the way, or just add a bit of extra beauty to the entrance to your garden. Here at Northwind Perennial Farm they have done just that.

A pair of containers filled with Mandevilla, petunias, and sweet potato vines flank the entrance to a colorful garden. Visitors stop to view the containers and discover the beautiful gardens that lie ahead.

Arbors have long been used to mark an entrance or transition in a landscape. Here they've used an old gate as an arbor, a twist on the traditional approach.

Combine the two for a colorful welcome from the containers on the ground to the structure over head.

Use stone pillars to mark the beginning or is it the end of this garden path.

And here we are invited to step into the garden and onto a path that seems to disappear into a woodland garden.

A bit more information: Include landscape lighting to brighten your entryways at night. Low voltage and solar lights can be used to guide visitors to your front door or outdoor living space. Use homemade or purchased luminaires, candles in mason jars and wine bottles, or votive candles in decorative glassware along walkways for parties and special events.
