In the 1950s, ranch-style homes abounded. They were so popular that they accounted for nine out of every 10 new houses built. Bright, cheery, and just plain fun, the facade of the ranch-style home offers lots of inspiration.
The typical ranch takes on a boxy, rectangular form, sometimes with an L shape, but always with plenty of hard corners. To prevent the place from looking like a shipping container, soften the property by adding curved lines. Bring these new shapes into play through rounded garden beds along the front and sides, each filled with a mixture of colorful annuals, hardy perennials, and attractive grasses for year-round visual interest.
