Front doors are a symbolic welcoming gesture to the world beyond. (even if we enter the mudroom door most of the time). A strong, inviting front door is relatively easy to create when designing a new home. Existing homes whose front doors are ill-defined and hard to access often pose a greater challenge. Often the biggest hurdle is creating a functional front door on a home whose approach is defined by the automobile rather than foot traffic. We enlist landscape architects when the problem is not about the house but the setting surrounding it.
