Create Seductive Doorways

Invite people thru your garden with doorways. Use a pair of pots, pair of vertical stones, pair of plinths, pair evergreen shrubs, arbor & etc. Drama of a step, narrowing to the path, above, less than 3' wide, lines of boxwood creating a hallway. Focal point on axis, creating a foyer and
beyond is another fabulous living room.

It is this simple. Doorway, landing, hallway, foyer, living room. Gorgeous & low maintenance too.

Like the boxwood treatment. Nice...But then you always give us good advice.

This garden is the epitome of you and your theories on focal points and axis- I'd bet there is no possible way to take a *bad* photo of it-thanks for sharing more images!
