t’s easy, you may say, to find examples of this style of planting in modern minimalist gardens, where the simple plantings lend themself to modern layouts
restricted planting scheme, with one species per bed. It’s interesting to see that even the trees have been planted in a block to give an extra layer of interest.

What type of plant is the one to the right of the photo?
On the tall plant to the right in the photo with the bushy blonde color on the top? I love it
grasses on the left and right are miscanthus varieties --- an exotic invasive. They are threatening our natural areas in MD. I'd advise against planting these.
tall grasses in mass planting combined with a few flowering plants looks natural & fresh
Exuberant plants that move with the wind and provide privacy shield without walls.
cottage style---way to many plants here don't worry about that. I plan on using shrub border to create a low maintenance plan. but the style of massing shrubs together in a overlapping pattern to creat interest and depth is a valid one.

hi there, can you tell me the name of the silvery green plant? thanks
love these plants concept, textured and soft colours
I feel it is a curry plant/bush
Love this ...but need native plants
alliums, especially the large globe varieties, have become very popular as accent plants. Here they stand over a mixed planting of 'Cotton Lavender', Santolina chamaecyparissus, and French lavender, Lavandula
Love the mix of plants and colors

What is the type of plant directly behind the bench?
Well done. Brilliant planting for space usage. I bet the owners love this low maintenace deck
front plants. Something like it for back yard
nice floor, seat and plants (probably like lush rather than those)
Like the wood, white and the use of plants for a fresh green color
Contemporary Hedging PlantsSucculents. We see in this beautiful contemporary design how hedging has become an integral component of the design, adding mass as well as color and texture. I know that many people would not consider the glaucous agave planting as a hedge, but it does come within the definition
definition of a hedge being a row of linear plantings.
Create garden harmony and unity by including numerous types of plants all in the same color, but with different shades and tones. Colors favored by designers include neutral grays and blacks, but some prefer more dominant colors, such as acid green
