Plan your landscape to be enjoyed from all angles and to appeal to the senses. Landscape designer Stephen Carruthers designed his front garden in Portland, Ore., to be enjoyed from the entry gate to the doorway, as well as from indoors. The L-shaped house forms two walls of the front garden, while a fence with a Japanese-style gate encloses the garden on the remaining sides.

Set against a beautiful espaliered pomegranate (Punica granatum), the bench gives visitors a place to view a small pool, also visible from the kitchen window.

Fountains and waterfalls mask urban noise, and fragrant plants scent the air. Lamb's ear and Mexican feather grass appeal to the touch.
