Modern Front Yard Landscape With Concrete Pad Driveway
This landscape design concept was based on the modern lines of the home and allows the elegant forms to transfer onto the ground plane. The driveway and connecting pedestrian paths are formed concrete pads with a simple broom finish in a series of squares and rectangles. The voids between the pads are neatly topped with gray beach pebbles and allow rainwater to flow through, minimizing runoff onto the street. The pockets of plantings near the front entry contain sculptural accent plants.
