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).
A white picket fence is a timeless feature. Even when it loses its initial glistening white look, it will still feel just as charming as ever, giving the home’s outdoors a traditional appeal. For a classic suburban home, a white fence is almost a necessity! It has a gorgeous design that isn’t very pointed and looks super classy. Any home’s outdoors can benefit from contrasts and in the example of this house, the white picket fence and the house’s white exterior really bring out the surrounding greenery to life. For a house that already looks magical, a white picket fence is just a cherry on top. A soft pink color of the house is an amazing background for a white fence. A white picket fence creates an enchanting setting, surrounding a house and allowing the space within to be a mix of different colors, all connected by the beautiful fence.
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.
