How welcoming is the path leading to your house? I am constantly planting to make the pathway attractive and welcoming and just love Allen Smith's idea of using low growing rose shrubs to make a visual welcoming statement.
Parts of the exterior of my home is grey flagstone and I planted these pale beauties. However this is a rose bush that grows upright and tends to want to greet everyone who passes by. I constantly have to prune it back so people won't get hit by a friendly rose bush. That's why I like the idea of using the low growing shrub varieties, they seem to be easier to control.
