Amorette Rancourt. Outdoor. December 12th , 2017.
Even when you group “like” plants, sometimes less is more. The neatly spaced succulents below are striking in their form, and the fact that they are separated by a blanket of basalt gravel makes them all the more prominent: Just as many modern landscaping techniques involve using gravel as a base, the use of greenery as a base can add interest and a sense of abundance. For example, planting rosemary around the base of a tree creates a green “stage” and makes the tree’s setting all the more special. Above and below, we see rosemary at the base of a crape myrtle tree. The tree’s pink blossoms are extra vibrant against the greenery that surrounds them. You can take this same concept and apply it to smaller additions around your yard, such as greenery in planters. For example, moss beautifully offsets the green succulent in the next featured planter.
Still dreaming about enjoying the last bit of sunshine outside even as colors of fall take over? Few promise the extravagance, visual splendor and contemporary style of the Wave Outdoor hammock!

It also helps to have some shade when a light drizzle or two rolls into town. Apart from the sheer visual grandeur that this dashing hammock brings to an outdoor setting, it also offers ample resting space for a couple and there is absolutely no shortage of comfort here. Available in colors beyond white and gray, this lovely hammock can stand the test of time and changing weather with ease and you have a durable, dynamic and flamboyant outdoor décor addition that promises to wow friends and family alike.
This observation tower rises above the river Mur at the Austrian border with Slovenia. Completed in 2009, it was designed by Munich-based architectural practice terrain for the city of Gosdorf in Austria. Made of steel and aluminium, the tower is intentionally incongruous in its Styria forest setting. Visitors to the tower enjoy revolving views of nature, as they ascend and descend its double spiral stairs. At its peak, a platform rests twenty-seven metres above the ground, offering views across the treetops of the wonderful riparian forest. It would appear that Norway is a country with many vantage points. Utsikten—or ‘the view’—was designed by Oslo-based Code Arkitektur. The rather quirky triangular viewing platform perches at the top of Gaular mountain on Norway’s western coast. With its raised corners, Utsikten affords three different viewpoints.
The driveway may be a part of the home’s outdoors, but it’s equally as important as any interior. The looks of your driveway are a reflection on your entire home and normally the first impression that a house makes on its guests or those who pass by it. Contemporary homes can pride themselves on their clean lines, minimal style and use of neutral colors. They reflect those features in their driveways! Take a look at these 30 homes that show off their top-notch modern driveway. When a driveway is empty it’s easy to see it as open, but when the cars get parked much of the spaciousness goes away. Think ahead and make sure your modern home gets a driveway it deserves – one that has an abundance of space and a sleek look.
