What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Your Garden: High Design the Easy Way
Single species. Sticking to one species of plant takes all of the guesswork out of laying out your garden. A field of grasses covers the entire property here, creating a natural and wild mass. A formal network of paths carves through the landscape, but the single species continues from one side of the path to the other, unchanged.
Erin Lang Norris added this to Your Yard: Are You Ready to Lose the Lawn?
In addition to lending a welcome sense of serenity, meadows generally attract birds and butterflies and provide a laid-back setting for your yard.
RepetitionPioneer trees in the windows bring birds into view while cleaning the dishes, blurring the lines between inside and outside. Again, the planting idea here is simple. The repetition of the grasses looks more compelling than simply planting one of everything from the garden center. All plants are beautiful in the right context — the right plant in the right place creates magic.
June Scott Design added this to 6 Basic Elements of Classic Garden Style
3. Designing along the axis. Much classical landscape design makes use of bilateral symmetry, in which shapes and forms of equal size are placed opposite one another at a point or along an axis. This creates a sense of order and gives the design a feeling of balance. In a large garden, long axes tend to dominate, but in a smaller garden they can be an efficient way to use limited space: Symmetrical gardens tend to be calming and don’t jar the eye. Axes are often terminated with a focal point (a piece of sculpture or a plant with a sculptural quality) whose form contrasts with the straight lines of the design.
