Circular Driveway Designs For Winter Interest
Creative ideas for adding all season interest to circle driveways and front yards
We've created curb appeal and winter interest in this circular driveway design by using different colors and textures of ground cover rocks. Along with that, the shape also adds interest and appeal.
While we've designed several landscapes and gardens using different colors of rock, we've never made it the backbone of the entire design.

Curb Appeal And Winter Interest
As you'll see in the following pictures, texture is a very important aspect of creating the curb appeal and Winter interest around this circular driveway design. Since the concept behind this landscape idea was to create interest on its own without plants, it wasn't enough to separate areas with just color. Or we might as well have just painted the same rock different colors.
At the time of the following pictures being taken, this design hasn't been planted in yet. This will give you an idea of what this front yard and driveway will actually look like in the dead of Winter.
The planting scheme is simplified, balanced, and unified. we picked a few species of plants and repeated them through out the landscape. This is important in landscaping ideas like this circular driveway design where planting areas are distant from each other. It helps create curb appeal by tying the different areas together to create a whole unit. To discover more about planting, see Choosing the right plants.
