Modern landscape design is defined by clean edges and an
uncluttered look. This landscape design style can be a great fit for a
property with a contemporary or modern home as well as a refreshing
juxtaposition to a more traditional architectural style.
Designing a modern landscape plan has as much or
more to do with materials than it does with the
plants. Often, modern landscaping features concrete
paths, patios, steps and even planters – all
combined with wood or metal accents. Earthenware
such as brick or pottery distracts from the modern
landscape style’s lines, so concrete or tiles (cutting
into shapes with right angles) are the top choice for
modern landscape design plans
The main idea is to explore different new and
various techniques of modern landscape.
As landscaping is not just about growing plants
or trees (SOFTSCAPE) but also expands to
elemental aesthetics to blend out the design in
a modernist way(HARDSCAPE+SOFTSCAPES).
Architects frequently work to
transform areas that contain
industrial and toxic waste,
infrastructure no longer in use,
or land affected by war, natural
disaster or disuse.
These neglected places, while
often having a negative impact
on the environment and
surrounding community, are
simultaneously part of our
cultural heritage. Here we’ve
selected several of the most
original and inventive examples
of landscape design from across
the world for your inspiration,
from urban to suburban, public
spaces to private residences.
One of the main goals of
modern design is to create
contrast. For example a large
massing of ornamental grasses
pops out against a grey
concrete wall, orange cushions
draw your eye when placed on
otherwise simple patio furniture
and a fire pit filled with colored
glass demands attention when
set amongst a bed of bluestone.
It is important to be selective
when creating contrast, too
much can be overwhelming and
make the space seem disjointed.
Pick two or three spots in your
yard and focus on one
contrasting element for each
Modern landscaping is known for its streamlined
aesthetic and sleek sophisticated style. Overall the
garden will feel controlled and organized. Typically,
the focus is heavier on hardscape and structures than
it is on plants. Modern plants are usually green and
selected for shape and texture. Pops of color are then
added with furniture cushions, planters or a painted
Popular materials used in modern landscaping include
concrete, metal and wood. Many designers opt for
leaving concrete surfaces their natural grey, however it
can be stained a variety of colors. Metal, especially
weathered corten steel, is a common accent in
modern gardens. It can be used as planters, as a
privacy screen or even as small retaining walls. Wood
decking is also common in modern yards. The wood
of choice is usually Ipe, a Brazilian hardwood with a

With their large petals and bright colors,
cannas bring a tropical feel to any landscape.
Cannas can be grown from bulbs as an
annual; you can dig them up to store for the
winter and replant in late spring.

suitable for creating a tropical

containers. Bromeliads, orchids, palm
trees(Arecaceae), and hibiscus are
just a few ideas to start with.

• Using rocks as a design element can add some interesting texture and drama.
• Using pieces of sculpture can help enhance their special iconography.
• Including a water feature in a tropical garden design gives it authenticity. It
also be a good way to keep moisture in the air for thirsty tropical plants.
