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.
Devil’s Corner was designed in 2015 by Australian architectural practice Cumulus Studio. Located in Apslawn, Tasmania, Devil’s Corner is one of Tasmania’s largest vineyards. A project for Brown Brothers, Devil’s Corner incorporates a cellar door, lookout and marketplace. Created using a a series of timber clad shipping containers, the lookout encourages visitors to explore the vineyard through a number of curated views. The horseshoe-shaped Grand Canyon Skywalk is a see-through, cantilevered bridge. Jutting out seventy feet from a side canyon in Grand Canyon West, the Skywalk is elevated at a dizzying 4,000 feet above the Colorado River. Designed and engineered by Lochsa Engineering & MRJ Architects, the Skywalk was commissioned by the Hualapai Indian Tribe who manage it as a way to accrue money from tourism.

The Balad comes in two different versions, the H38 outdoor lamp that is slightly larger and its more mobile, smaller cousin the H25 outdoor lamp. Even with its larger radius, the H38 is still easily transportable and can be charged to give you 14 hours of continuous use. Of course, if you have a power outlet close by, then you will not have to worry about charging it as well! The unique LED technology of the lamp gives you two different brightness settings and you can even alternate between a warm 4000k light and a colder 6000k light. The smaller H25 offers you all the same features as the H38, but has a battery life of around 12 hours. Two different metal stands combined with the colorful variants of Balad allow you to create multiple lighting compositions for your serene backyard, small courtyard or urban balcony.
