And if you need help with any of these, give us a call, we’d be happy to help you with adding any of these features to your modern garden.
Idea 1: Water Features
There is nothing more soothing and relaxing than the sound or sight of moving water. Water features can come in all shapes and sizes, which can be a great addition even to those smaller spaces. People often ignore water features in smaller spaces assuming they won’t have room, but this isn’t necessarily true. There are plenty of options available for all garden spaces, and adding them can give your garden space a wonderful visual lift.
While it can be a fun time consuming DIY project, it is also recommended that you receive professional assistance to design and install a water feature to ensure the right positioning and set-up for ease of maintenance.
Idea 2: Paths
Creating or revamping an existing pathway is a great way to spruce up your garden with a new look. Get adventurous and avoid using straight lines, and enhance the look by adding some borders around the path with plants. Pathway lighting is also a great way to give an elegant look at night and aim for stone or wood as your pathway materials.
Idea 3: A Terrace
If you have the space for it, a stylish terraced area is excellent for entertaining and of course, their stunning look. There are things to consider, however, like whether you will use it as a functional place to dine or relax, or something visual as a backdrop. You will also want to consider the size and which materials you want to use.
Once you’ve got your terrace designed, adding borders, lighting, edging and various angles to really help to make a terrace area a great modern contemporary space. As the landscape designers Sydney often turns to, Amico knows all of the design tricks, so ask us if you have any question.
Idea 4: Decking
Decking is a very popular design choice as it is relatively easy to install and the expansive look of wood gives a great feel to your garden. It also creates more practical functional space for people to enjoy, but does require maintenance to ensure you get long-lasting value from the addition of your decking space.
Decking is stylish, and a raised deck with potted plants and lighting is a tough look to beat.
Idea 5: Rockery, steps, and walls
If you have a smaller garden, rockeries are a great focal point and use of space. They add texture to your garden and work exceptionally well with coloured plants.
It’s also important to keep in mind that landscaping isn’t just about planting. Hard landscaping, which often requires help from professionals, is a great way to raise the bar for your modern design. Introducing steps or walls is an effective way to get a lot more out of your space and create a great look.
