You may like Modern Designs if you enjoy minimalistic, clean lines, and low maintenance. Asymmetrical or symmetrical features are welcome here. Concrete pads and walls with wood benches may be of interest. Planting plans are usually very orderly and structured in the Modern Design, and a bit more natural in the Contemporary Plan. Changing textures are of high value as you use different materials throughout the yard for visual interest. Simple and elegant are abundant here. Sleek, linear water features, fire tables and accent walls may accompany your ideal outdoor experience.
