Front of House Landscape Design

D & A Dunlevy Landscapers, Inc. is excited to present this featured project. Our designers, Gina Palmer and Blake Dunlevy, have been selected as landscape designers at the 2016 DC Design House. This our third opportunity to take part in this phenomenal design showcase that also does the great work of raising funds for the Children’s National Health System. To read more about the house click here. Each space of the house features a different designer. We created a design and incorporate many elements into the front entry of the home.

The key to a beautiful home begins at the door to the home; more specifically it starts in the area that leads up to the door of the home. The front garden of this lovely DC home sets the tone and begins the guest’s experience by creating an orderly yet flowing space. The flagstone lead walk draws you toward a generous landing which is bordered by a custom built bench and decorative planters. Ascending the steps to the cover of the portico, one notices the well manicured – multi-layered – planting displays that encase the entry on the right and left. Once the top landing is reached, you find a warm front door framed on either side by elegant planters that boast a rich display of greenery. If the front garden is any indication, this home is sure to provide a tasteful and timeless walk through the craft of finely designed spaces.
