LAND­SCAP­ING MODERN

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.
