This is a landscape we installed last year in Washington.  The space was long and narrow, sandwiched between the house and driveway and terminated by two entrances.  The concept was to keep things simple by introducing a slice of history into the garden to match the period architecture. A Boxwood parterre was planted to give some formality and structure to the front entrance.  The parterre was then interplanted with annuals, adding summer color to the otherwise green garden.  Hollies mark the front door while a looser planting of Hydrangeas billow over the walk, bringing the homeowners and regular guests to a side entrance through the arch.

Here is a picture right after the boxwood parterre was planted so you can get the idea of the area we were working with. Natural fieldstone line the driveway and a sliver of grass will give the snow plow driver at least a little room to push snow.
