The driveway may be a part of the home’s outdoors, but it’s equally as important as any interior. The looks of your driveway are a reflection on your entire home and normally the first impression that a house makes on its guests or those who pass by it. Contemporary homes can pride themselves on their clean lines, minimal style and use of neutral colors. They reflect those features in their driveways! Take a look at these 30 homes that show off their top-notch modern driveway. When a driveway is empty it’s easy to see it as open, but when the cars get parked much of the spaciousness goes away. Think ahead and make sure your modern home gets a driveway it deserves – one that has an abundance of space and a sleek look.
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).
Planters can help you fill in gaps as you put the finishing touches on your modern landscaping. Need to add height to a section of your yard? Try a tall planter. Looking to create some privacy in a seating area? Create a screen with a row of planters filled with abundant greenery. The possibilities are endless. While summer isn’t always the best time to put new plants in the ground, it’s a great time to gather inspiration for your modern landscape. Have fun observing, making big changes if you can, or adding little clusters of greenery by incorporating planters. Happy gardening.
