The landscape architects of this space explored the use of scale, shape and color to create a detailed, nuanced patio, garden and yard. The square beds containing red plants and flowers bring a sense of order, while the garden beyond feels wild and untamed; this creates a pleasing sense of balance.
It can be tough to design a long and narrow plot of land -- and to maximize usage of space. Here, the designer added a tiered system to create a sense of dimension and order needed when incorporating so many spaces and elements. The curved walkway softens the block-like plot, and several garden and flower beds liven up the yard.
A narrow concrete bridge provides a path across a small pond. Lined with colorful flowers, ornamental grasses and rocks, a tranquil waterfall trickles down into the pond creating a relaxing garden atmosphere.
Perfect for relaxation, this cottage has a wraparound porch with brown painted beams decorated with hanging baskets of flowers. Ornamental grasses complement the strong sloping roofline and wood detailing of this charming home.
A thick growth of yellow flowers, ornamental grass and shrubbery creates a lively and colorful border for the gravel driveway winding toward this plantation home. The spacious yard and natural decoration create an airy feel.
Part of the charm of this resort's landscape design is how the residences are incorporated seamlessly into the gardens. Here, Adirondack chairs are nestled next to large blooms of flowers and ornamental grass.
