Six Panel Black Door Is Home to a Lucky Green Thumb
The horseshoe hung above the six panel exterior door says as much about the homeowner as the many containers full of gorgeous blossoms in so many colors: someone has luck on their side, at least when it comes to gardening. The door's glossy black finish doesn't detract from the natural beauty of this home's entrance. All the door's panels are raised and there is a brushed bronze mail slot in the door's mid rail. The downspout from the gutter conveniently empties into a water collection barrel painted with the same glossy black enamel of the door. The water from the barrel can then be used on the container garden, window boxes, wall planters and hanging baskets, which saves a homeowner money on utilities and effort--no hose to drag through the house! In addition to flowering plants, some of these containers have shrubbery. When designing a container garden for the front of a home, it's important to choose a variety of plants that stay green year-round.
