Planting in Blocks
The selection of plants is often limited and planted in large blocks or masses. Grasses and perennials are interplanted to catch the light and create movement.
Modernist garden furniture is architectural in style: sculptural chairs, elegant recliners, simple tables and matching benches.
Reflective pools create unruffled surfaces and bring light into the garden. Their reflective surfaces contribute to the expansive feeling of the Modernist garden.
