The watchtower was partly conceived and installed as a tribute to ‘Selma’, a legendary sea serpent living in the adjacent lake. The Seljord municipality is often visited by tourists, locals and avid bird-watchers. The twelve-metre-high tower has a periscope-like appearance and three lookout points: one at the tower’s apex, looking across Seljord lake, and two en route to the top. Also designed by Saunders Architecture, Stokke Forest Stair in Øye Sculpture Park, Norway, was completed in 2012. A clever woodland installation, the stairway provides the visitor with an elevated vantage point above the forest’s floor. The Stokke Forest Stair was transported by helicopter, and a careful analysis of the site meant no trees were felled in order to accommodate the structure.

Their simplicity is captivating and it’s no wonder many homeowners see them as the ultimate dream. A home with a dark exterior will wonderfully contrast the white fence, contributing to a balanced setting that is but a monochrome backdrop for the greens growing in the yard. The color white’s biggest blessing is the fact that it makes all the other colors stand out. If you really want the colorfulness of your house to be seen from miles away, a white picket fence is a sure-fire way to do so.

Its unique form also allows you to turn even the small urban balcony, patio or even tiny backyard into a relaxing spot for your next staycation, which is just a few steps away from the living room. Minimal, contemporary and with a touch of breezy, coastal charm, this fascinating hammock is truly one of a kind. While you are currently enjoying the best of summer months and their warmth, soon colors of fall are bound to take over. Yet, the fun outdoors is bound to continue as you host friends and family through the holiday season and décor that can withstand the vagaries of changing seasons and weather is an absolute must. Today, we showcase two different outdoor décor collections; each with its own unique charm and inimitable flavor. Yet, both of them seem to be bound by contemporary minimalism and a hint of geometric flair and perfection that sets them apart.

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.
Mironova Artyomova Outdoor, 2017-11-26 13:34:53. Planters can help you fill in gaps as you put the finishing touches on your modern landscaping. Need to add height to a section of your yard? Try a tall planter. Looking to create some privacy in a seating area? Create a screen with a row of planters filled with abundant greenery. The possibilities are endless. While summer isn’t always the best time to put new plants in the ground, it’s a great time to gather inspiration for your modern landscape. Have fun observing, making big changes if you can, or adding little clusters of greenery by incorporating planters. Happy gardening.
Stella Blinova Outdoor, 2017-11-26 13:34:52. 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).
Emilia Vorobyova Outdoor, 2017-11-26 13:34:51. This observation tower rises above the river Mur at the Austrian border with Slovenia. Completed in 2009, it was designed by Munich-based architectural practice terrain for the city of Gosdorf in Austria. Made of steel and aluminium, the tower is intentionally incongruous in its Styria forest setting. Visitors to the tower enjoy revolving views of nature, as they ascend and descend its double spiral stairs. At its peak, a platform rests twenty-seven metres above the ground, offering views across the treetops of the wonderful riparian forest. It would appear that Norway is a country with many vantage points. Utsikten—or ‘the view’—was designed by Oslo-based Code Arkitektur. The rather quirky triangular viewing platform perches at the top of Gaular mountain on Norway’s western coast. With its raised corners, Utsikten affords three different viewpoints.
