A garden is like a jewel in the house. With it comes the greenery of plants, the colors and perfumes of flowers, and the freshness of air circulating between leaves and petals. With modern gardens, the often solitary enjoyment provided by gardening or contemplation becomes explicitly socialized: these spaces became truly social,  with furniture such as tables and chairs and even outdoor living rooms composed of sofas, armchairs and small tables. In some of them, the outdoor lounge concept has been fully incorporated. In addition, the furniture has gained elegance and presents itself in beautiful and refined materials and discreet colors. But another trend is the furniture in strong and vibrant colors. 

Nowadays, we usually spend too much time indoors and have little access to outdoor environments. Nothing more natural than maximizing the garden as much as possible, especially if you're lucky enough to have one as part of your house. In  modern gardens, in addition to furniture for receiving friends and family, winding shapes, wooden decks, paths and stone beds and  maybe even residential fires for the cold days may be needed. The plants used can be a range—from the smooth and bright lawn to the nook with wild flowers and stones, passing through the low and thin trees in perfect order or by the meticulously pruned shrubs. Stone gardens, gardens over the water and cactus gardens can also compose a modern garden. In this book of ideas, we have pictures of 33 modern gardens that will enchant you and inspire you to transform your garden into an oasis of calm and comfort.
