Contemporary Ranch House
A uniquely American style, ranchers are low-slung, single-floor, asymmetrical
homes with garages front and center and a focus on backyard living. With its
horizontal shape, ranch homes need smaller plants to match -- especially in front
of the windows. Larger foundation plants and trees can be used on either side of
windows and near house corners. Accent the front door with medium-sized planters
on either side. The backyard typically has a patio, large grassy area for play
and comfortable outdoor furniture.
