Place your house in the lap of beauty - 5 Contemporary Landscaping IdeasBy Smitha Jose
Outdoors Tweet 0 Comment(s)
You have taken all due care in planning and designing your house. Your interior looks stunning and the exterior is amazing with all the contemporary features. But isn't something missing from the list? Is it okay to leave the ground surrounding the house all bumpy and unattended? Definitely not.
Landscaping (beautifying the surrounding area) is as important a part as designing the house.
Landscaping is a concept that gets wider to include more features with passing time. Earlier it was just the green garden that dotted the front yard. Now, the ideas are plenty, making outdoors as beautiful and functional as the indoors.
Landscaping is thus something you can never miss out while making your dream home. Here are some ideas that can spruce up the space.
Gardens are the evergreen ideas for landscaping. There can be hardly any scene more beautiful than a bed of lush green plants. Huge trees, shrubs, succulents or bushes – there is one for every season and reason. The backyard can be turned into a kitchen garden while the entrance to the house can be made colourful with floral or ornamental plants. To make the best out of a lively garden, invest in some good outdoor furniture. Paved pathways with stones or gravels can be created to make a way out of garden, leading to the entrance door.
The green shrubs popping out from bold grey walls breathe a new life to the exteriors.
Pool design for backyard
If a swimming pool is a must – have thing for you at the backyard, you will hardly need to think of anything else for landscaping. A pool created with plenty of plants to make a boundary is probably the best thing you can do to beautify your backyard.
Patios can be a versatile landscaping idea, fit for front yard, backyard or even the side area. The grounds paved with stones or tiles can become excellent outdoor dining spaces. All you need after constructing the patio will be some good furniture and plenty of time to adore the beauty of nature.
Landscaping is not just to add beauty and glamour to the open space. It can be innovative enough to create functional spaces like outdoor kitchen or barbecue. While providing for a kitchen garden or a manicured lawn, leave a tiny space for an open cooking area. With a cool and cheerful open cooking space, your family and friends (whom you have invited for a get together lunch) will be happy to help you with the cooking.

Water features like artificial waterfalls, ponds, streams or fountains can be yet another landscape addition that can make the front yard a heavenly scene. When you have a fountain or stream in front of your house splashing and tumbling merrily, the music created is so soothing that it makes you forget the tiring road journey that annoyed you with those endless horns and screams.
Interlocked tiles in contrasting earthy shade surrounding the fountain and the greens makes a perfect curb appeal
These are just 'some' of the 'many' ideas. Landscaping is all about your personal choices and preference. Never hesitate to think out of the box.
