The Geometry of Curb Appeal

Houses, especially those with clean, modern lines,  need to be framed by complementary landscaping and hardscaping, or else they just look a little bare and empty, like the otherwise interesting Alligator House in New Orleans below:

Our place is going to be so angular that I can’t decide if it’s best to complement with a curving, organic entrance:

Or to frame the house with additional straight edges, like so many other modern places do:

This might depend on the material we use for the hardscaping (aka, the walkway and driveway)…I feel another post about this coming soon…
