Driveway Landscaping Photo Ideas

A good driveway landscaping photo can inspire you with curb appeal ideas for your own yard. A drive around your local area also helps by showing you the use of native materials and plants.

Driveway ideas like this flagstone path style, are a great way to add character to your front yard.

Driveway ideas like this flagstone path style, are a great way to add character to your front yard. This would make me feel like I was arriving at a cottage when I came home. What a great way to mentally shift gears from work to play.

Landscaping driveways is one of the most challenging things to do in your yard. Front yard curb appeal is important because of the visual exposure to the public, but it also has to be practical for vehicles and foot traffic. In northern climates, it will have to resist the stresses of heavy snow, ice, and salt.

Other times it has to endure extreme desert heat or drought.

Visual appeal doesn't always have to be sacrificed for being practical. Driveway edging using decorative rocks and hearty shrubs has become an attractive and popular way to deal with winterkill of grass.

There are many other creative ways to landscape your front yard using a variety of different materials.

For Pinterest users, we have added pin-it buttons for each picture to make it easier for you to share with other users. You can also follow us on Pinterest as we have over 7000 categorized landscaping pictures on over 70 different boards.
