I've had a hard time finding examples of modern landscaping. I made a quick sketch of what I think would look nice in the front of my new house, but I'm still undecided. In the meantime, I've been working hard pulling out all the stuff I don't want.
I got inspired by these images of a front home makeover on Apartment Therapy. They removed all the old big bushes and replaced them with smaller ones. And I love the use of stone. Check out more images of this home on Flickr. The inside is even nicer!
