Garden is a good place to relax and feel nature even in metros. Many homeowners like to choose a theme for their landscape architecture. If your home’s architecture is a good match, think about a modern landscape design. In this style, boundaries between areas of color, textures and shapes are undefined-or conversely, sharply defined. Combining freshness and flair, these designs use dramatic geometric shapes to convey a point of view that is elegant and natural.
The garden designer Amir Schlezinger of Mylandscapes, London, designed this contemporary garden as a social space. Beautiful yet highly liveable, this Regent’s Park garden design extends interior space into relaxing outdoors full of serenity. The benches correspond with the shape of the indoor fireplace, while the Ipe hardwood continues the lines of the flooring. The granite waterfall creates reflections on the surrounding walls – contrasting dramatically with the narrow bands of buff sandstone.” Well placed greenery and a waterfall mask the surrounding sounds of traffic and noise. Tiles and hardwood accompany each other as well as draw the eyes along the borders of the garden. The bamboo and other trees add an elegant and warm tone to the design. A great designer can take any modern space and create a warm yet spacious feeling. This contemporary garden is full of beauty and calm.
