Plan Description

The basic ranch house with its clean, simple lines makes a perfect starter house, retirement retreat or home for small families. Its small size dictates an understated landscape design. In answer, the designer created an attractive yet straightforward plan that sets it apart from similar homes in the neighborhood. Access to the front door is easy and appealing by way of the curved brick paving--a more attractive choice than a straight walkway. The semicircular foundation planting creates a homey setting while extending the architecture forward, making the house appear larger than it is. Within this bed, a small flowering tree softens the corner while adding seasonal color. Because space is limited, an espalier grows flat against the wall near the entrance, providing sculptural interest and color while taking up minimal space. Although the plan is asymmetrical, the informal repetition of forms on each side of the driveway balances the design. The brick walk leading to the front door is echoed by the walk leading to the back of the house. On each side of the driveway entrance, a decorative fence, whose horizontal boards respond to the horizontal siding on the house, ties the two sides of the design together. Along the property line, an elongated oval of lawn bordered by shrubs and flowering perennials creates an attractive alternative to the strip of lawn so commonly seen in side yards. This bed is picked up on the other side of the driveway and continued along the street, visually unifying the entire landscape. Also shown here is home plan HWEPL00384.
