Use Easy-to-Maintain Shrubs


Well maintained vegetation is one way to make any landscape area seem more appealing than it actually is. It helps add a fresh layer of life to any piece of land. Easy to maintain shrubs which planted along the side of pavements and paths are a great addition to midcentury homes.

Add Primary Colors


Keep things classic and use primary colors in your design ideas. Restrained palettes are very obviously modernist whereas the use of primary colors in landscape and architecture is midcentury modern. If there is any geometric decoration in your interior living space, then harmonize those patterns outdoors with a midcentury twist by having them painted with primary colors. Brightly colored panels are bound to draw attention in any garden!

Use Natural Stone


Another effortless and easy way to convey the midcentury themes in landscaping is to design your space using natural stone. This was particularly popular with the midcentury architects and landscape designers because it was one of the local materials that was most easily available. By having natural stone, you can create sectioned pieces of land to separate plants and wildflowers from any other area such as path or a living space.

Gardens With No Flowers


The use of raw materials such as concrete, sand, gravel is popular in midcentury aesthetic. This meant that there is barely any focus on maintaining gardens because they are seen as secondary when it comes to having a midcentury landscape. For this reason, flowers aren’t very popular unless they are used to accentuate geometric patterns or are confined to sectioned areas within a particular garden. Having gardens with no flowers is one of the ways you can channel the midcentury vibe in your household.
