108 pictures and ideas for modern landscaping and gardening


In the Landscaping and garden design you have to learn to mix the perfect lines of the garden, the transition elements and plantings into a visually appealing design. Landscapers use a few basic principles to achieve even the simplest, but most striking, designs. These techniques can seem overwhelming at first, but keep in mind that you have likely already automatically incorporated many of these principles into your existing garden. Check out these stunning images and get some ideas for your own project.

Landscaping and garden design – optical balance

Optical balance is always a good solution. For example, many designers create a visual balance by creating identical gardens on each side of the house entrance. This draws the eye to the front door. This procedure works very well for colonial style houses. Asymmetry is becoming more and more common in modern landscaping. Repeat similar elements in two differently designed garden zones. The connection between these zones is not in the shape and symmetry of the elements, but in the repetition of the plantings, stones and hedges.

Landscaping and garden design – continuity

 The principle of continuity focuses on your entire landscape rather than on a specific garden. Continuity means that you incorporate similar elements throughout the yard to create a sense of order and coordination. Choose similar plants, shrubs and trees, use similar building materials and a matching color palette.

Color and texture

 Color offers one of the most powerful tools available to the landscaper. Colorful flowers and vibrant shrubs will immediately grab the attention of the beholder on your yard. The specialists recommend choosing two to three colors and repeating them through the yard. For example, you can surround the yard with evergreen hedges and plant colorful annual perennials next to it. How to add texture is often a complicated choice for the landscaper. Texture refers to the differences between the foliage of the plants and the surface of the different materials. Remember that an evergreen looks very different from an annual. Shade plants often have beautifully shaped, colorful leaves. Use the texture to create interesting highlights in your landscape. As with the paint, repeat the same textures throughout the yard.
