Front Porch Photos From HGTV Green Home 2009

Partially shaded from the bright summer sun by the roof overhang, the front porch of HGTV Green Home 2009 offers a quiet spot to sit, relax and reconnect with the neighbors.

The paved walkway leads to the front porch entrance, flanked by drought-tolerant pygmy date palms.

A sitting area invites guests to kick back and bask in the Florida sunshine. Two Ebel club chairs, covered in antique-beige Sunbrella cushions, share a rustic, wood side table topped with a concrete base.

Weather Wicker chairs by Ebel are 100-percent weatherproof and crafted of a high-density polyethylene that is recyclable.

Sabal palms, native to the area, frame the home and provide shade for the front porch.

The gracious double front door is protected by a wood and metal overhang. Glazed ceramic planters provide a rustic focal point, while Energy-Star-rated, iron-oxide wall lanterns illuminate the space.
