When clients (or sometimes friends!) ask us what makes Designing With Elements different from other landscape design companies on Long Island, the answer is easy—we do modern landscape design.
Modern landscape design (also called contemporary landscape design) is about straight lines, in-organic shapes, geometry, bold features, stark graphic elements, and hardscape that really makes a statement. In contemporary landscape design, traditional landscape design rules are turned on their head. Ponds may be square. Pergolas may be steel. Industrial and urban materials like concrete and gravel abound. Plantings take on an almost architectural feel.
Modern landscapes, because of their reliance on hardscape, are often low-maintenance and drought-tolerant. A modern design makes a great choice for sustainability-minded homeowners or those just looking to spend more time enjoying their space instead of taking care of it.
