Lots of hardscaping, just right amount of container gardens, this home's courtyard has the stylish outdoor area formula down! A modern planter with slim metal walls is a lovely way to break up all the hard surfaces.
Angular, matte black chairs by Kettal create a comfy spot to lounge on this rooftop terrace with picturesque views. Sleek, modern planters are filled with structured cycads and vibrant succulents, imbuing the space with life and color.
When coordinating an autumnal color scheme, think outside the box. Modern black planters can be used year-round, and cranberry-red flowering annuals are an easy way to add a touch of fall flair. When mixed together, black, dark green and cranberry red create a bold palette that is appropriate but unexpected for fall.
The clean lines and sharp edges that define the backyard are softened by palm trees and round planters. Thanks to the modern design of the pool, it almost looks as though it's possible to walk on water.
A circular seating area reflects the garden's lower level design. The designer embraced the cement walls and added polished concrete planters. The bluestone paved area and the long cement planter are in permanent shade, so the planting consists of plants that can grow in the shade environment. The area by the grass is super sunny and required plants that thrive in those conditions.
Polished concrete planters add refinement to the urban garden, which already had a massive concrete wall. The designer used Chinese and American wisteria, English ivy and climbing hydrangeas in the outdoor space.
A metal planter displays the house number just outside this modern courtyard. Drought-resistant plants fill the rustic container, which accents the contemporary concrete wall that separates the patio from the street.
