Located in a prestigious neighborhood in Miami Beach, this contemporary home bespeaks of modern luxury in a clean and sleek form. The minimalist garden of date palms and monochromatic green palette complements the architecture of the home.
Designers wanted everything in this modern home to be connected, so they used glass throughout the design to create this synergy, drawing a line of sight from the front yard, into the home's interior and into the courtyard space.
A modern half-wall around the home's front entrance makes the front yard entertaining space semi-private and more functional, allowing the homeowners to make use of all their home's spaces, both indoor and out.
This eco-friendly Southwestern style landscaping features modern terraced steps to lead to the home's front door. The plants featured in this garden are drought resistant to stand up to the extreme temperatures of this home's desert location. Other aspects of this design include sustainable materials such as reclaimed stone for the gabion wall and the stone that requires no watering.
Modern lanterns and a large pendant brighten the exterior at night, ensuring that guests can safely ascend the front steps. At the same time, landscape lights showcase the yard's greenery like works of art in a gallery.
This single story modern home features white exterior walls with gray roofing. Tall bushes border the front of the home matching the height of the house. A short fence separates the yard from the concrete walkway with gate access leading into the front yard. A couple of turquoise lawn chairs create a sitting space to enjoy the front yard.
Located in the historic Bungalow Heights neighborhood of Sarasota, Fla., this single-story home was designed to embrace an indoor-outdoor lifestyle. A variety of tropical trees and plants in the front yard help soften the modern exterior and mitigate intrusive noises.
A custom-fabricated metal gate separates the front yard from the modern courtyard. The designer knew the gate had to be interesting enough to stand up to the 5-foot-tall concrete walls on either side, so they designed a self-latching gate. The gate, fabricated by Dennis Schleder, weighs 300 pounds.
