Framing A View


Another aspect of landscaping design is framing pathways. This can be done a number of ways. Steel arbors, wood arbors and trellises or any combination of those, all add interest. Plant material is another way to frame a view. Plants provide a charming and interesting viewpoint and they're economical. The framed pathway emphasizes the view. It draws attention to the space you're going into. So, if going from a driveway out to the play area, it's a transition area and the view draws you into the space. Don shows Joe a dramatic view draws you out to the water. Plant material and an arbor are utilized to emphasize this water view. And it is a fantastic view.
