This Victorian farmhouse has many lovely trees, shrubs, and perennials. But the entryway is deemphasized by the greenery.
This simulation shows how a picket fence can complement the house and gardens, while focusing the visitor on the entry way.
Even when your house is hidden behind trees, a good gate tells the visitor where to find the path.
This Manchester Arch leaves little doubt about how to reach the front door.
The greater width of the Manchester Grand Arch is proportional to the width and depth of the path.
Before the fence: Existing pathway curves away from door
New fence, old pathway: This approach adds a fence but obscures the door.
New fence, new pathway, more curb appeal: The homeowner could consider moving the path so that it goes more directly to the door. The fence opening in this approach enhances the entry rather than hiding it.
