With winter officially here in South Eastern Washington, these modern landscaping projects by Exteriorscapes are quite beautiful and warming to look at. What I like about these landscapes are that the majority are no geometric. The organic feeling of some of these have a nice movement and flow. I love the use of steel to shape divide and accentuate different sections of the gardens. I have plans in the spring to mess around with some steel, pretty simple stuff thought.
I recently came across the work of Wagner Hodgson who has created some stunning modern landscapes. I am always envious of the owners when I see places and homes like this. I wonder what it would be like to have an outdoor space like these to enjoy and relax in, I will go ahead and assume it would be amazing. I also recognize that a lot of the modern gardens take time to mature and fill in. Make sure to check out the rest of Wagner Hodgson’s portfolio.
Summer has almost come and gone and all I did was plant a single tree in my yard. I had so many other plans but sometimes life can change those plans. I recently came across the work of Anthony Paul Landscape Design and was reminded I hadn’t done much of anything in my own yard. Anthony Paul has a great set of projects that show off his talents when it comes to modern landscaping. I love the large concrete bowl like planters, maybe a DIY on a smaller scale. I bet it is so relaxing to to just sit and enjoy these amazing environments.
I still haven’t gotten to do much landscaping in the yard but that won’t keep me from dreaming. San Diego based Grounded, a modern landscape architecture firm has a portfolio that is certainly dreamy. Grounded specializes in modern landscapes that are visual stunning. The geometric, layered blocks of color and texture are done with exactness creating a visual that screams modern. Make sure to check out the rest of their portfolio as these are just a few images.
Last weekend we put our first tree in the yard (Crimson century maple) and it got me thinking that I hadn’t done a post on modern landscaping for quite some time. Melbourne based Taylor. Cullity. Lethlean. has a great portfolio with some very creative residential landscapes. I love that lighter colored crushed or small stone that is used in some of these pictures, does anyone know what that might be. The first picture = almost perfect!
I have always loved the art of Bonsai, the exactness and the organics create an amazing living pieces of art. The concept of a Bonsai in water or a tank is pretty cool. Make sure to check out the video to see hoe the “tree” moves in the water.
A beautifully curved deadwood of Sabina chinesis is attached to java moss resembling leaves. Different trunk and leaves are combined to form Bonsai, which now rests in a new environment with water.
