Structured Front Garden

Metallic accents add subtle sparkle to a contemporary garden.

In this front yard, a large concrete planter is wrapped in an 18"-high sleeve of burnished stainless steel and planted with a low hedge of emerald green boxwood, creating an interesting juxtaposition of sleek and rugged. To soften the look, Mexican river rock and lush coreopsis and hostas nestle at its foot.
