Boxwoods, bricks, and hydrangeas ~ perfect! This could be a front porch or a back porch... but the curb appeal is strong for either case. Fabulous welcoming stone pathway with gorgeous evergreen hedges and beautiful ever blooming hydrangeas behind the hedges (called 'layering') and of course steps up to a gorgeous deck or porch. Love this look.
Loose gravel in shades of gray, white, and tan gives this raised patio a beachy feel to complement the relaxed look of the low-slung wood-sided cottage it sits behind. | Photo: Coral Von Zumwalt | thisoldhouse.com
