I just recently purchased this '68 home in Las Vegas. As you can see, the palms and garage dominate the exterior, with entry to the front door being a walk up the driveway and a couple of turns. How do I get any curb appeal from this!? I have thought about tearing out the palms but a lot of people think they add character and think I am crazy to even think of such a thing. It has been suggested in a sister forum (where I was asking about its architectural style and was told it is a ranch)that I should keep them and do something with the garage door to make it more interesting and maybe add some kind of arbor or structure at the opening between the garage and blockwall leading (eventually) to the front door and that I should check in with you folks in the landscaping forum. Landscape wise, I lean somewhat toward the English cottage feel and have a veggies, fruit and flowers growing in the back side yard. I love eclectic BUT a palms and cottage blend...possible ?? Any ideas as to what could help spruce things up here would be very much appreciated!!
