modern garden design

as much as i tend to gravitate towards gardens of the english variety, i love the simplicity of modern design.

outdoor bathtub, no big deal

love the use of only a few types of plants. the pop of green against the dark gray is lovely.

the garden here is more tropical than modern, but next to the modern design of the house and furniture it still has that feel. love the thatched roof.

ultra simple with just grass and a few trees. the clean lines where the grass meets the river rocks next to the water makes me instantly calm. the way the light is arranged is positively lovely.

this image never gets old. the grid is so perfectly laid out. something about perfect rows makes me reminisce of peter rabbit.

I love each and every one of those gardens. I long for the day that I can afford to do a backyard makeover. For now, I'll continue hate all the pine trees that poop their needles all over the place.

I would love any of these outdoor spaces, but that first one! A bathtub! And in it's own enclosed space?! I. Die.
