We are building 2-story home (~2300 sqft) in a neighborhood of mostly 1-story homes, and typically less square feet, and no large attached garage. Needless to say, with the extra square feet, and attached 2-car garage, the home appears a bit out of place for the neighborhood.
Our home is at the end of a culdesac and is at the highest point in the neighborhood, which does help somewhat with making it seem a bit separated from the rest of the homes, as it's not visible until you get to the top of the culdesac. However, I would still like to visually make the home appear smaller using various landscaping techniques.
As you drive up the road to the end of the culdesac, the first thing you see is the side of a deep garage. Before the garage was framed, the home did not seem too large. I would like to get some input on some landscaping techniques on how to make a home appear smaller.
I'm thinking some evergreens of some sorts, but I really have zero experience with choosing the right plants, and where to place them. We are located in CT.
