A big family house overtakes the space, appearing almost as majestic as the trees surrounding it. The white picket fence gives it a friendlier feeling and creates a subtle barrier between the passersby and property itself. A thin picket fence can allow those who pass your house to have a little peek into your garden, but thanks to its pointed look it remains a boundary that protects your space. A large house can give the impression that it’s looming over the low picket fence, making it appear even smaller than it is. Color-coordinated with a fence on the porch, this white picket fence contrasts the house with its short height. A tall white house built in a Victorian style looks like it escaped out of a dream! The whole setting is absolutely magical and greatly perfected by the white picket fence that carries a bit of a vintage style itself.
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).
Offering a majestic vista, Aurland Lookout is an architectural marvel. Located in Aurland, Norway—a country crammed with spectacular fjords, lush forests and great mountains—the lookout was designed by Bergen-based Saunders Architecture (a practice established by Canadian architect Todd Saunders in 1998). Completed in 2006, Aurland Lookout is referred to by the architect as ‘a walkway into the void’ and a ‘piece of architectural theater.’ The lookout measures thirty metres in length, and a 1.2-metre-high glass balustrade protects visitors from a sheer, vertical drop. Beyond this transparent barrier, the view of the fjord and mountains is breathtaking.
