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).
It’s amazing how important a fence can be. The classic picket fence gives the house a domestic feeling because there is something so familiar about its design. It has an inviting appeal. This beautiful vintage home, painted on a lovely shade of pastel blue, is picture perfect! It’s absolutely dreamy, calling you in, its beauty enhanced by the pretty little white fence. Your beautiful fence can have a really strong decorative component, especially if you combine it with stunning rosy flowers. Your front yard will have a super elegant look. A house with a significant retro style is made even classier by a traditional white picket fence, channeling a look that loudly screams home sweet home. A fence with wider picket planks has a modern style and works great with a trendy, dazzling house, making every day seem like the peak of summertime.
Succulents are an ever-popular planter choice, and many modern design lovers create succulent gardens and plantscapes that feature a range of plants in different colors and forms. Reserving a couple of planters for seasonal flowers will give you a spot for an ever-evolving garden of blooms. Don’t be afraid to get inspiration from commercial landscaping. Office buildings and outdoor shopping centers are just two of many locations that often showcase large planters filled with flowers. Note the different color combinations, and snap photos of your favorites so you can take them to your local nursery to find out more about the plants.
