Since picket fences draw much attention to themselves with their classy look, they also draw much attention to your front yard. Make the best of it by creating a blooming yard. A charming little house with a calming gray interior is made magical by a really low white picket fence. The functionality of the fence is not a priority in this case – it’s all about the strong decorative value. Picket fences have been around for decades, growing in popularity with each year. Seeing an old-fashioned house with such a fence shouldn’t be a surprise but we’re still stunned about how much fresher a setting looks like, all because of a white fence. A house and a fence can blend together so well they seem to become one entity. The exterior feels synchronized in the most wonderful way, capturing the allure of simplicity.
Don’t forget about the big impact that can be made with rocky features such as large stones. If you’re lucky enough to have them naturally occurring in your yard, definitely use them to your advantage. If not, you can get help from your local landscaping company. Don’t attempt to move hefty boulders and rocks on your own. Some even require a crane when it comes to installation, so making a thoughtful decision on their placement is key. Looking to add more than native greenery to your modern yard? Planters are the perfect way to experiment with growing a range of plants in a smaller setting. Interested in growing plants that won’t survive the winter in your climate? Put them in a planter that you can move inside during the coldest months of the year. Not sure you’re up for planting an assortment of higher-maintenance plants in the ground? Try them out in a pot or planter.
Even when you group “like” plants, sometimes less is more. The neatly spaced succulents below are striking in their form, and the fact that they are separated by a blanket of basalt gravel makes them all the more prominent: Just as many modern landscaping techniques involve using gravel as a base, the use of greenery as a base can add interest and a sense of abundance. For example, planting rosemary around the base of a tree creates a green “stage” and makes the tree’s setting all the more special. Above and below, we see rosemary at the base of a crape myrtle tree. The tree’s pink blossoms are extra vibrant against the greenery that surrounds them. You can take this same concept and apply it to smaller additions around your yard, such as greenery in planters. For example, moss beautifully offsets the green succulent in the next featured planter.
