Full Answer

Both hardscape and softscape are used to draw the viewer's attention to specific features of the property. A driveway entrance can be enhanced by placing a wall parallel to the driveway or perpendicular to the entrance. A perpendicular wall can include an arch that spans the opening of the wall, and ornamental driveway gates can be added for extra visual appeal. Adding flowers or shrubs around the entrance gives the yard an inviting ambiance.
