Plan details

The low, sprawling lines of this ranch house and its red-tile roof evoke the Spanish Mission style reminiscent of the easy-living, comfortable nature of Southwestern life. The landscape designer chooses both hardscaping and softscaping to complement the house and the climate. Exposed aggregate walks, simple yet attractive, lead to both main and secondary entrances, and blend well with the contemporary Southwestern architecture. The bed bordering the walkway to the secondary entrance is bermed slightly to block the view of the walkway used by the homeowner, preventing the visitor from approaching the wrong door. The V-shaped driveway provides a convenient parking spur and the angles of the driveway create visual excitement in the design. Three flowering trees spaced out near the corners of the driveway reinforce the V-shape and provide welcome summer color. The tree on the right frames the entrance to the garage; the one on the left frames the view to the door; and the one in the center buffers the view to the secondary entrance. Together, the three balance each other, forming a pleasing triangle. The planting border running in front of the garage wing continues on the other side of the driveway, strengthening the lines of the bed and creating a transition between front and back. Without the continuation of the planting area, the landscaping would abruptly end; with it, the sight line gracefully continues. At the end of a second sight line, the small flowering tree at the left corner of the house creates a view for a visitor strolling up the walk. Also shown here is Home Planners design HWEPL00522.
