Curb Appeal Without Plants
Ideas for how to add curb appeal and winter interest without any plants
Generally, a landscape design without plants isn't even a consideration. And while this design will have plants a little later on, it does show how it is possible to create designs that will look good even without trees, flowers, and bushes.
Just as plants are an element used to create unity, continuity, and beauty, textures and colors in hardscapes can also be used to do the same. And an advantage of doing a landscape like this would also eliminate having to water or replace any plants.
