Modern landscaping design
Maybe there are gray gravel, stepping stones and modern planters in your yard, but the modern look is missing. We have some tips for you today on how you can achieve modern open space design.
Entertain in clearly defined zones
A cornerstone of the modern landscape is that the zones are clearly defined.
The geometry makes the garden unique and natural. It is also important to make the garden interesting. Here we see pictures of a magnificent contemporary garden designed by D • Crain , Note the rectangular figures with gravel that create a stepping stone effect.
Gravel and grass define a contemporary garden
How many separate zones can you make? In this example, there is everything: a swimming pool, water system, covered porch, modern planters and abundant flowerbeds with native grasses. A perfect design!
Clearly defined zones in a modern landscape
In this picture we can see that the ground vegetation serves for the separation of the support zones, for example the pond next to the swimming pool. Gravel, tiles, grass, water and lush plants are combined in an ideally planned landscape:
Gravel, stone and grass in a modern yard
In addition to the expansive green lawn, the yard also has a pond with drainpipe. Note the decorative elements used in this space – concrete paths to the grass and bushes along the fence. The result: a segmented but unified space

Another separate zone is the seat with the fireplace. Do not forget the impression that a clearly defined porch can bring.

Different materials were used for the next yard – stepping stones and concrete veranda, wooden boards for the open space, lush green lawns. The colors create an impressive visual contrast.
A backyard with a skillful landscape
Even if your space has only a clearly separated zone, you can make it well. This is the backyard designed by Rees Roberts + Partners LLC. Bushes make up the private room, furnished with a well-kept lawn and modern open space:

Strategically arranged plants
Not only the choice of plant species is important, but your impressive placement. The foliage and grasses are grown in orderly rows.

A similar look can also be seen in the free space designed by Shades of Green Landscape Architecture , The plants are arranged according to their kind, so that they form colors overlays from deep red to smoke blue …
Grasses in rows
Do not assume that everything should necessarily be arranged in straight lines. One can make strategic compositions through plant mixtures. The lilas and pink below form a contrast to the green tones.

This is another striking combination of stones, succulents and peculiar plants. Use your flower beds as a black canvas for interesting sketches, as in the image of the design of Grounded …
Unique plant combination
The next farm, designed by Cipriano Landscape Design uses the power of the plant world. Although not grown in ordinary straight lines, the plants look well-groomed with borders on a bow.

Use wild elements … in specific settings
The wild elements can also be integrated in modern farms. In this room by Grounded, the orange blossoms reach for the sky, but still from their clearly separated flowerbed.

One possible combination is of lush vegetation over the edge of the flower bed. Dichondra is a great option, shown in the image of the free space, designed by D • Crain :

Plant life can even flow over modern stairs, as in this stylish space of D • Crain , Put this look next to a neat lawn and revive it with native grasses.

Wild and well maintained in an urban open space
Finally, we come to a room by Huettl Landscape Architecture with the best combination of wild and well-kept elements. Of course, the plants grow around the yard, and the neatly laid porch tiles reflect the clean lines of the house’s architecture.
