Your landscape should be the entrance into your home. It should embody the overall feel, this outward presentation of the inside of your home. This begins at your property line. The entire property not just where your home begins. By using a gate or arbor, small fences, or hedges as a garden border you create a visual line to the entrance of your home. These are also used in the back yard; a visual guide to the flow of your garden.
