This modern trough-style planter can be placed in gardens, and along driveways and walkways to grow flowers, herbs and vegetables. The raised planter, made of Zincalume steel and sold by Gardener's Supply, is 15 inches high.
This vertical garden offers a contemporary spin on the more traditional garden wall. The oversized, textured medallion serves as a focal point, though plants in a mixture of textures, colors and shapes draw the eye onward, and raised redwood beds ground the space.
These sleek containers are tall enough to hold flowers and plants and create some privacy without blocking the skyline views. The all-weather containers are placed around the modern urban rooftop terrace. The designer chose sun-, drought- and wind-tolerant plants.
Square pavers, wood slats and a swath of green combine in this zen-like garden space. A rock garden features low-maintenance succulents for a backyard that's meant for enjoyment, not laborious lawn care.
The road to this modern house begins high on a cliff above, so when guests approach the home, the rooftop becomes a critical element of the design. Terraced planes planted with year-round, region-specific succulents step down the hill.
This modern home is custom-fitted to its wooded, sloping site. Bold red trim makes the otherwise neutral structure stand out against a backdrop of trees. A fenced, modern garden features raised beds that are visible from a bi-level deck and covered patio.
This spacious rooftop deck features a full outdoor kitchen making it ideal for entertaining on warm evenings. A container garden with blooming flowers and trees is a lovely natural touch in the clean, modern space.
A full kitchen with a grill, cooler and sinks completes the outdoor experience on this modern rooftop. Bright purple flowers burst out of a wooden planter, adding a colorful burst of nature to the space.
Permeable paving creates a striking entryway to a Sarasota, Fla., home while the front garden has a series of horizontal plinths with sculptural plants. The award-winning landscape design is by DWY Landscape Architects.
A major challenge in designing this garden was the site, with a massive concrete pad that hides a dry well. It inspired the circular grass area. The designer chose not to cover or paint the cement walls but instead embraced the texture and how the cement reflects the light. The garden is accessed by stairs from the living room, which is located on top floor of the apartment, and from the bedrooms that are below the street level.
