Here, what might otherwise have been a utilitarian connection between driveway and lawn is instead a celebrated passage. Landscape elements team with a clear-finished arbor to create a gateway between an upper-level driveway and a lower-level lawn. Bluestone treads carved into dry-laid, stone planters elegantly invite yard access. The narrow arbor overhead announces the yard entrance for those approaching from the driveway. Climbing vines integrate the arbor architecture with the garden below. 

When designing the procession from car to house, or car to garden, allow for imaginative transitions along the path to enhance the journey.
