Impressionable Plants for Your Curb and Front Entrance

The entry of the home is truly “where it’s at” when it comes to the feel and look of your home. When you use only so-so plants out front, your home starts to look pretty boring. But a great front entrance incorporates beautiful curb appeal plants and greenery to make the property really stand out in the neighborhood!

But where do you begin when it comes to your front porch? Here are a few great ideas on the best front entrance plants to make the perfect first impression:

Container Plants

Colorful container plants are perfect for a front door entrance. Begonias, violas, and fuchsias are all gorgeous varieties which are also perfect for the shade. Covered porches will flourish with a combination of any of these wonderful container plants.


At Martin John Company, we love helping customers incorporate interesting topiaries into their design. Topiaries add color and appeal giving front yards a polished look. Today’s customers can choose from thousands of types of topiaries in all different shapes and sizes.

Pavers, Stone & other Hardscape Materials

When you are brainstorming driveway entrance landscaping ideas, don’t forget the importance of hardscapes. Plants are great but adding gravel or wood or even pavers can add style and appeal while also being low maintenance. No trampled flowers or driven-over shrubs!

Creating curb appeal in your front entrance can be one of the best investments you make into your home. Rather than an expensive kitchen update or bathroom renovation, why not spend a few dollars on adding incredible plants to your front door entrance?
