Outdoor areas of Modern Houses are now a major focus of landscape design. The contemporary notion is that the house should open seamlessly to outdoor living areas and that the area surrounding a home should be as well designed and functional as the inside.
Contemporary design when applied to landscaping suggests that outdoor eating areas should be an extension of the kitchen or dining room, that pools should be completed with a gazebo or cabana for comfortable outdoor living. Gardens can include many modern design elements as well as traditional planting practices
