Modern contemporary landscaping design is known for its streamlined visual aesthetic, and sleek, sophisticated style. Typically this design style feels and appears controlled and organised, and the focus is on the hardscape and structures that are bold and stark with clean, sharp lines. Modern contemporary landscapes also appeal trend of blending the indoors with the outdoors world.
Popular materials used to achieve the modern contemporary landscaping style include concrete, metal, and wood. Many landscape designers choose natural grey concrete, with steel and wooden accents. One of the main goals for this style is to create contrast selectively, for example, the use of mass planting groups of ornamental plants against neutral coloured walls, or pops of colours in textures against a clean wooden deck. Geometric shapes and repeating patterns are often seen in this landscaping style, one example of this is using grid or geometric patterns in the paving design.
Mass planting of plants such as zoysia, Turf Lily, and Xanadu are often used in this landscaping style. To achieve a clean, modern and contemporary feel, greenery and flowers should be planted strategically to ensure they are kept within borders by planting them in garden beds or with groundcover.
