Openness and spaciousness are two of the greatest features a modern driveway can have. They create a deluxe appearance, clearly showing off plenty of room for more than just one vehicle. A house with an elegant exterior needs a driveway that matches that style and contributes its own charm! Adding greenery to the driveway doesn’t tamper with its modern look, but it does bring an organic twist to it. Neutral shades are a clear indication of contemporary decor and concrete is the best choice when we’re seeking to bring neutrals into the outdoors. This driveway is as vast as it is gray, beautifully balanced by concrete and stone.
A white picket fence is a timeless feature. Even when it loses its initial glistening white look, it will still feel just as charming as ever, giving the home’s outdoors a traditional appeal. For a classic suburban home, a white fence is almost a necessity! It has a gorgeous design that isn’t very pointed and looks super classy. Any home’s outdoors can benefit from contrasts and in the example of this house, the white picket fence and the house’s white exterior really bring out the surrounding greenery to life. For a house that already looks magical, a white picket fence is just a cherry on top. A soft pink color of the house is an amazing background for a white fence. A white picket fence creates an enchanting setting, surrounding a house and allowing the space within to be a mix of different colors, all connected by the beautiful fence.
If you live in an area where it’s not practical to cultivate a lush, green lawn, you may be interested in creating a more drought-tolerant landscape by using native plants that don’t require much water. Xeriscaping is becoming increasingly popular, and even if you’re not looking to add large amounts of gravel to your yard, you can create an abundant look by grouping plants into clusters. After all, there’s power in numbers. Whether you saturate an area with a large number of the same plant or you introduce some variety by incorporating a couple of different types of native plants, you can get a modern look by planting greenery in rows or tidy groups. When “like” plants are placed together and more than one selection is involved, you can achieve eye-catching contrast. Or you can make a statement by including one different plant that stands out in the pack (scroll to the top of the post to see a lone blue agave plant take center stage in a sea of Mexican feather grass).
Since picket fences draw much attention to themselves with their classy look, they also draw much attention to your front yard. Make the best of it by creating a blooming yard. A charming little house with a calming gray interior is made magical by a really low white picket fence. The functionality of the fence is not a priority in this case – it’s all about the strong decorative value. Picket fences have been around for decades, growing in popularity with each year. Seeing an old-fashioned house with such a fence shouldn’t be a surprise but we’re still stunned about how much fresher a setting looks like, all because of a white fence. A house and a fence can blend together so well they seem to become one entity. The exterior feels synchronized in the most wonderful way, capturing the allure of simplicity.
