great contemporary landscaping pointers:
A Contemporary Home
The strong geometric lines of contemporary architecture call for a foliage-focused planting, and this narrow roadside border delivers.
Key design features:
Restraint in color and plant variety
Linear planting that echoes the horizontal lines of the home's siding and fence
Emphasis on foliage over flowers
Muted earth tones
Grasses and succulents are eminently suitable for contemporary landscape design, as they rely upon their strong form rather than colorful blooms.
These plants require minimal water and maintenance.
The grasses add a bright note to the dark stained fence panels.
