A symmetrical, geometric arrangement of built-in and freestanding planters adds interest to the exterior of this contemporary California home. Green grass between concrete pavers softens the walkway, and tall plants create a layered, interesting look for the garden design. Stacked stone on the home's facade blends with the colors of the sandy beach beyond.
This South Florida home's outdoor space offers an abundance of luxurious features. Neutral stone pavers surround the coping around the edge of the pool as well as a pathway made of linear-cut ipe wood. A circular seating area in the middle of the pool includes a fire pit, making it a dramatic focal point.
The home's exterior now an extended front porch and freshly painted brick exterior in crisp gray and the shutters in black. A gray stone chimney adds texture to the home. Wooden flower boxes on the windows add an extra touch. A small lamp post serves as a marker near the end of the walkway.
Elevated mulch sections, a concrete path and accent wood panels create a beautiful collaboration of texture for the landscaping of this modern home. Concrete stepping stones border the shape of the house with strips of grass growing up in between. Plants and shrubs add personality and natural color to the gray and neutral home components.
Formal walkways in the garden lead visitors through a succession of rooms, each with their own ornamental focal points. Here, a series of overhead metal arbors act as guides for garden roses to grow and climb upon, structured at the base by topiary boxwoods and strong stone pillars.
A concrete walkway leads from the driveway, around the sharp corner of the house, and ends at a small patio and door entry. A mix of vertical and horizontal white siding, wood siding and stone creates an intriguing finish over the exterior. Slanted roof sections over the levels in the architecture gives the home unique shape.
This spacious backyard doubles as a water park, with a curvy slide that starts on an upper level of the backyard and empties into a large swimming pool. White paver stones are placed along the side of the pool creating sleek garden decor and a functional walkway to the pool area.
A small walkway continues from the wood pool deck to wood stairs descending into a pool level bar. The bar features white countertop and a white island in the center surrounded by a wood bench. Stone stools are built in underwater surrounding the bar feature for fun swim-up seating. A triangle canvas cover offers shade to the bartender for the perfect entertaining atmosphere.
A mix of vertical white siding, horizontal white siding, natural stone finish, and wood siding creates an artsy, patchwork exterior look on this home. Slanted roof sections accent the levels in the architecture. A concrete driveway cuts through the front yard to lead to the white garage door. A sidewalk frames a small planted area and continues from the driveway to the front door.
The entryway of this home was designed to introduce guests to the color and texture they will find on the home's interior. From the stone exterior wall to the bright green plants that line the walkway to the copper colored front door and modern pendant lights to illuminate the home's entrance, color and texture create an inviting experience for guests and homeowners alike.
A feature wall leads visitors to the spa-like hot tub, but not before leading them along a unique feature wall. Three stone "frames" are the home to glass and metal sconces which have both fire and light elements. Below the scones, water flows from tiny spouts into the pool, creating an audible element along the pathway to the relaxing spa.
Nestled in a small back yard surrounded by a curtain of mature hardwood trees, this outdoor living area makes the most of the available space. The owners wanted to her the "arts and crafts" stylings of the neighborhood, but they also desired a contemporary twist. Designers added a small hot tub and a water feature that make use of clean lines, while the pathways and walls have a splash of personality with natural stone.
Consider designing a pair of mirrored rain gardens to flank a central walkway. By the second growing season, these beds will sparkle as lush gardens filled with shrubs, ornamental grasses, sedges, corkscrew rush, perennials and evergreens. A stone spillway directs rain water runoff from nearby hard surfaces into the rain garden basin. On the lower side, an overflow spillway and drainage pipe shifts rain water runoff to nearby storm sewer channels when heavy rains fill the rain garden to overflowing. Including an overflow spillway helps ensure water doesn’t backflow to swamp your home’s foundation.
A strong feature wall along the swimming pool is highlighted by a tall, verdant backdrop of Queen, and Mexican Fan palms, plus tall, wispy bamboo. The wall frames the pool along the garden's edge and is balanced by the use of a cut-out feature and a gallery-like arrangement of stone and metal fire sconces, and water spouts. The water flows from the wall into the swimming pool which is bisected by a walkway connecting the ipe wood patio to the hot tub.
