During the colder months, as we spend more time inside of our homes, do we really take the time to enjoy the view outside? As part of an overall plan, have you considered the opportunities (throughout the year) to enjoy viewing the landscape from the INSIDE-out?
More often, most homeowners express their criteria for developing a landscape plan as:
- Enhancing curb appeal
- Screening the neighbor’s garage
- Softening the lines of the house
- Adding color to the landscape
These are very realistic desires for the landscape, and there are many others. One creative aspect of the design process, often overlooked, is to strongly consider the
views from the INSIDE. So often we are concerned about how the landscape looks from a drive-by glance, that we don’t appreciate the contemplative feel of the landscape from the INSIDE of our homes.
With the use of colorful and unique trees, we can transform simple sunroom windows into beautiful pieces of art. By adding a window box outside a kitchen window, we can enjoy the aroma and texture of culinary herbs. By incorporating an outdoor living area, a water feature, or simply encouraging birds and butterflies to visit (and we will talk about that another time), your landscape can embrace your home throughout the year!
It is important to consider ALL of the aspects of design, from the INSIDE-out, when developing a landscape plan for your home. Our creative Designers and skilled Horticulturists at Sunrise Landscape + Design take a comprehensive and detailed
approach to design and implementation, in order to leave no stone unturned. Please contact us by visiting our website, or calling 703.544.0028.

from the INSIDE-out…How does it look from your point of view?
