Tilly places a lot of emphasis on understanding our client’s garden style because it’s a critical piece of the puzzle when creating a successful backyard or front yard design. Modern landscaping design focuses on the principles of classic geometry. It generally incorporates a smaller color palette for plant material and a more neutral palette for hardscape. Check out some of Tilly’s favorite modern backyard designs from coast to coast.
This gorgeous backyard landscape design focuses on a smaller plant selection and groups them in deliberate and repetitive masses giving the space a clean and polished feel. (Okay, we snuck a front yard rendering in here too!)
