Landscaping makes a big difference in the appearance of this home by complementing the architecture and making the setting inviting. The yellow house color with turquoise shutters adds to it all.

Plantings soften the hardscape and are set apart by soft lines created by the curved edging. Grass and mulch help to balance the scene.

The trees in front are mostly low palms, but there are some flowering shrubs planted along the structure as well as in pots. The tall trees behind help frame the total balance.
