Contemporary Design Ideas for Large gardens

When it comes to garden design, many people resort to the services of professional landscapers, in order to turn their little patch of nature into a fantastic decor. Because working with limited space can be tricky and pose some difficulties, there are many resources available on how to design the perfect oasis when you have a small back yard or garden. However, people lucky enough to have a large garden also need help, because all that space shouldn’t go to waste and, obviously, there is plenty that you can do with a large garden. Therefore, if you are interested in modern garden ideas, then you will be able to find a couple of unique concepts for contemporary gardens below. It’s important to keep in mind though that some designs are not suitable for every garden or space, although everything can generally be adjusted to suit particular needs and wishes.

Create a garden spa

If you do have a lot of space in your garden, then a garden spa is a very modern idea. In order to create a real Zen kind of space, you need to leave at least one side of your garden a little wild, with no concrete improvements, just nature and wood. Inside this little oasis, you can have a wooden hot tub installed and if you want it to be original, you can have a small stone waterfall pouring out of the hot tub. Although your garden is large, this arrangement will give you a sense of enclosure. As you can see, there are plenty of modern garden ideas for large spaces as well and you can make great use of that space with just a little imagination and maybe the services of a professional landscaper to help you out.

Tips for creating a modern garden

Mixing concrete with wood with one of the most stunning modern garden ideas and the end result can be really amazing. You can build long concrete benches and then place wooden panels over the sides, creating unique chairs or sitting spaces. You can build a wider block as the table and cover one half of it entirely in wood and build a fire pit in the other half. This way, you will have not only a modern and great looking garden, but also a cozy place to relax. The fire pit will keep you and your family or friends warm, but can also be used to roast marshmallows or hot dogs. Another great idea would be to combine nature with modern architecture.

Build levels

If the space allows it, you can build levels in your garden. Build the floor level completely out of concrete, where you can have a fire pit or even a grill for barbequing and then raise your construction towards the second floor, where you can put in sods and plants and turn it into the relaxation area. The unique idea in this kind of structure would be connecting the two levels through round plates of cements, placed on top of each other, creating a very original outdoor staircase. The floating, oversized disks will definitely give your garden a unique aspect.
