HOMES The breslers and their designers made sure that the landscaping helped the house and its surrounding terrain blend together beautifully. “i think what’s actually key to the success of the whole building is the integration with the landscape and the landscape design,” says architect Jan-heyn. here are a few landscaping tips for modern homes: 1. Go for geometry. straight pathways, circular shapes and forms, and rectangular plantings can all echo a modernist home’s lines. geometrical forms can also be echoed in plant shapes and arrangement of trees.
2. Keep it clean. you can have massings of different plants and an expanse of a lawn, but it is best to keep these well-manicured so that the yard will be as streamlined as the house’s façade. 3. Hardscape is your friend. hardscape, or man–made features such as paths, ledges, walls, and even custom-built benches, can be key features of your modern garden, especially when done in the same style as your home.
