Porches Of Newport Beach, CA

On the road van Finding these awesome porches of Newport Beach, California, was a real treat and one Mary and I are happy to share with you. Not only unique and beautiful, these front porches offer up lots of ideas you can use in designing, decorating, or landscaping your own porch.



We just happened upon this southern California neighborhood and were delighted with what we saw.

Newport Beach and harbor are well known for fun beach activities such as sail boating, fishing, rowing, paddle boarding, kayaking, and whale watching. Quaint shops and restaurants are all within walking distance.

In addition, the once popular TV show, The O.C. was based on the characters living in Newport Beach.

Mary and I discovered the porches of southern California have a look and feel all their own. In addition, we love the many different walkways and landscaping designs that can complement any home no matter its location.

Front Porch Landscaping Ideas From Newport Beach

Mary and I saw many beautifully landscaped yards for the porches of Newport Beach. We thought we'd share a few to give you ideas for your home as well.

This is a nice way to landscape a front yard with two levels. The gate on the upper level adds a bit of sophistication to the home.

Whenever feasible, install curved walkways and landscape around them as shown below. Curved walkways add an appeal of their own as well.

Picket fences almost always add a little charm to a porch or home. Often times, they can dramatically change the appeal of small porches or porticos. We like the design of this particular fence.

Front door colors can have a dramatic effect also. Note how the flowers complement the door - or vice versa.
