In modern houses which often have a garage dominating the facade, you can still use the garden to signal the way to the front door. Here, informal planting and a straight path help direct pedestrians away from the driveways, while a white soffit contrasts with the black stain to lead the eye to the front door.

Consider the finer detailsEven in modern, car-oriented suburbs, I believe homes and their frontages deserve to be ‘5-kilometre architecture’. That way, we slow down, we appreciate, we take in detail. It takes us longer to walk down the street and we enjoy what we see as we are doing it. Take a test – walk past your own property at your average walking speed of a leisurely 5 kilometres an hour and see how its curb appeal rates.
