Homes in lovely settings like the one below is what I want to look at for landscaping ideas. Mature trees and shrubs. Simple ferns. Multi-level landscaping. Curvy paths borderd by flowers. A front yard filled with bulb flowers. A mountain home with tall lanky trees. Cottage garden. English country garden. These all create homes in lovely settings. Source: Naperville Real Estate
This house has airy shading with mature shrubs of different heights framing the house. I loved this soft shady setting as soon as I laid eyes on it.

It does have mature trees surrounding the property but I like the rose bushes that compliment the rosy colored brick on the house nicely.
I like the simple landscaping at this house in St. Augustine, Florida that has mature trees and simple ferns growing to greet visitors. Let’s look at more homes in lovely settings.
A bungalow in Ross, California with structured landscaping at different levels like the house itself.
It doesn’t have to be about bushes and trees. Consider a curvy path bordered by a lush flower garden.
Or plant a bulb garden and watch spring come to life in your front yard.

A mountain home with architecture so wonderous no large bushes or trees obstruct the front of the home with simple low growing plants and bushes and tall lanky forest trees.
Cottage garden setting perfects this wonderful house that reminds me of my grandparent’s place. So much so, that I stopped what I was doing and started scrounging through old pictures only to realize I don’t have a picture of their home, but I know my sister does and getting a copy of their house is now on my mind.
This shady garden retreat would take years to create if starting from scratch or if your lucky you might happen to buy a house with mature landscaping like this that draws people’s attention. I know if I was driving by this house I would slow down and be in wonder.
This house from a past post I did called English Country Beauty has outside landscaping as stunning as is the inside, so if you need your inside of the house fix head over to this link and enjoy.
