If you live in an area where it’s not practical to cultivate a lush, green lawn, you may be interested in creating a more drought-tolerant landscape by using native plants that don’t require much water. Xeriscaping is becoming increasingly popular, and even if you’re not looking to add large amounts of gravel to your yard, you can create an abundant look by grouping plants into clusters. After all, there’s power in numbers. Whether you saturate an area with a large number of the same plant or you introduce some variety by incorporating a couple of different types of native plants, you can get a modern look by planting greenery in rows or tidy groups. When “like” plants are placed together and more than one selection is involved, you can achieve eye-catching contrast. Or you can make a statement by including one different plant that stands out in the pack (scroll to the top of the post to see a lone blue agave plant take center stage in a sea of Mexican feather grass).
The Calyx series of armchairs, loveseats, coffee tables and bistro tables hold you with their intricate diamond-shaped weaving pattern and a breezy modern vibe. Each of these fits into a wide array of outdoor lounge decorating styles that range from coastal and shabby chic to modern and minimal. For those who love something more dramatic, curvy and artistic, the Croissant series with its hand-sculpted frame is a great choice. Be it the easy armchair or the spacious sofa, this elegant collection manages to enthrall without disturbing the aura of the natural landscape it sits in. Finally there is the beautiful Oasis Collection – a series where the silhouette of every décor piece is inspired by the shape of a tulip. Built using a polyethylene and aluminum frame, its inherent organic vibe and inviting form bring serenity and style to the modern pool deck, patio or any other outdoor hangout.
Those who love modern design often prefer a modern landscape when it comes to their outdoor spaces. While the sleek, contemporary look of a well-planned yard may seem unattainable, the use of native plants can make it surprisingly easy to maintain a yard that’s every bit as interesting as the inside of your home! It’s always helpful to consult an expert when it comes to choosing the best plants for your space, but the tips featured in today’s post will get the ball rolling as you plan a strategy for your yard. If you’re drawn to plants that are a bit trickier to maintain than native greenery, you can always place them in planters to cultivate a few of them at a time or switch them out with the changing seasons as needed. Keep reading for modern landscaping tips and some stunning outdoor vignettes that are sure to inspire you.
Openness and spaciousness are two of the greatest features a modern driveway can have. They create a deluxe appearance, clearly showing off plenty of room for more than just one vehicle. A house with an elegant exterior needs a driveway that matches that style and contributes its own charm! Adding greenery to the driveway doesn’t tamper with its modern look, but it does bring an organic twist to it. Neutral shades are a clear indication of contemporary decor and concrete is the best choice when we’re seeking to bring neutrals into the outdoors. This driveway is as vast as it is gray, beautifully balanced by concrete and stone.
