Samantha Schoech added this to Celebrate Geometry for a Sharp-Looking Design
So much of modern landscape design relies on juxtaposing the randomness of nature against the hard and fast rules of geometry. This is a beautiful example of squares and rectangles against the unpredictable shapes of plants.
Mitchell Parker added this to 16 Ways to Get More From Your Small Backyard
5. Play with the angles. If you’ve got a small square spot to deal with, San Francisco landscape architect Rich Radford suggests turning paving in a lateral direction to your property line to create more hardscape space. For the 25-foot by 30-foot backyard seen here, he shifted the paving 45 degrees to get more surface area. 6. Pay attention to scale. If you’ve got a small backyard, the last thing you want to do is cram in a 10-person dining table. Instead, consider built-ins or extendable tables. Likewise, you won’t want to plant a tree that’s going to grow to 100 feet tall and completely overtake your yard. Here Radford smartly worked in small, native plants and grasses to keep an open feel.

Modern design, simple, perfect for the client who wants something different. Best if secluded by fence or other way of internalizing the visual space. Fountain would handle pooling better if graded properly. Using black polished mexican pebbles would introduce a different feel that can be mirrored in the rest of the design. Outcropping of black stone or a border of the black pebbles on one side of steps.

4. Complement your interiors. Use the same colors and style that you’ve already established inside your home for your backyard to make it feel more like its own living room. “Stylistically, you want to pick up on colors and textures that tie the two spaces together,” says Amber Freda, a landscape architect in New York. “Make it more than just a couple of chairs and a dining table. A plain dining table with wooden chairs won’t entice you to use it very much, but really comfortable lounge seating will.”
