When you picture your dream home, does it have a white picket fence? It has become somewhat of an American dream – a little suburban house with a white fence that gives the outdoors a charming look and clearly says home. Such a fence is perfect for traditionally built houses and newer, more modern houses as well. Check out this roundup of homes with a white picket fence for inspiration. The white picket fence immediately pops into our head when we think of “classy domestic lifestyle.” It’s such a traditional feature that represents the good family life, either in the suburbs or the countryside. The bright color of the fence marvelously accompanies the pastel tone of the house’s exterior and its white trim. It’s obvious this color palette is harmonious and stunning.
Even when you group “like” plants, sometimes less is more. The neatly spaced succulents below are striking in their form, and the fact that they are separated by a blanket of basalt gravel makes them all the more prominent: Just as many modern landscaping techniques involve using gravel as a base, the use of greenery as a base can add interest and a sense of abundance. For example, planting rosemary around the base of a tree creates a green “stage” and makes the tree’s setting all the more special. Above and below, we see rosemary at the base of a crape myrtle tree. The tree’s pink blossoms are extra vibrant against the greenery that surrounds them. You can take this same concept and apply it to smaller additions around your yard, such as greenery in planters. For example, moss beautifully offsets the green succulent in the next featured planter.
The Trefle Collection is as much about functionality as it is about visual brilliance as these fabulous outdoor cushions are crafted using weather-resistant and embossed Jacquard fabric. Keeping out tough stains, water, UV rays and mould, each of these cushions has been crafted to stand the test of time and the vagaries of changing seasons. Of course, the true highlight of the series is the gorgeous clover-leaf-pattern on each of the cushions that brings vivacious charm to even the dullest outdoor hangout. These striking cushions come in a wide range of sizes and hues and you can either choose to introduce bright accent colors like orange with the Trèfle or just stick to more neutral colors like gray and blue. Combining them with charming outdoor benches, poolside loungers and comfortable chairs is the perfect way to put final touches on your dream backyard escape.
Succulents are an ever-popular planter choice, and many modern design lovers create succulent gardens and plantscapes that feature a range of plants in different colors and forms. Reserving a couple of planters for seasonal flowers will give you a spot for an ever-evolving garden of blooms. Don’t be afraid to get inspiration from commercial landscaping. Office buildings and outdoor shopping centers are just two of many locations that often showcase large planters filled with flowers. Note the different color combinations, and snap photos of your favorites so you can take them to your local nursery to find out more about the plants.
