When we finished the house and the garage, something seemed off balanced between the two. We stood down in the cul de sac and studied the aesthetics trying to determine how to bring the two into balance. After going back to the drawing we had submitted to the developer we found we had added an arbor. It wasn't between the house and garage but had been added to create interest in another area. Why not use it to fill the space between the house and garage? After all, it had already been approved. It was the best decision and balanced the area beautifully. Once it was finished we planted wisteria to cover it. I know wisteria can destroy a structure so we used a miniature version.
The pathway to the side door is covered with spent blooms.
