Potted cedar or boxwoods that sit near a doorway are the ultimate in luxurious plants. These specialty items take time and a lot of care to reach artistic levels in their delicate spirals or rounded shapes. Topiaries are a great addition to a luxe outdoor space in that they provide interest and movement to the space. Consider adding other topiaries into garden beds with permanent plantings of evergreen trees sprinkled throughout your outdoor living area as well.

Japanese Maples are great at providing lots of texture and interest to a space without getting too large. Keep them manicured and they can stay quite small while providing a pop of beautiful crimson coloring to your outdoor space. Consider planting them in areas like corners and near walkways to provide beauty and interest in all areas of the garden.

Another great option for a luxe design that doesn’t cost much at all is to create a succulent garden in areas of your outdoor living space. Succulents are great in that they don’t take up much room and can be potted together to form an interesting conversation piece. Different shapes, sizes, and colors all add depth and interest to an outdoor space and they require little to no maintenance. Consider planting a row of succulents in a long wooden tray placed on the outdoor dining table for a modern look.
There are many different kinds of plants that can help compliment a luxe outdoor design. Consider using different potted topiaries to generate a modern and upscale look. Other plants, like the Saffron Crocus or a mixture of different Succulents, can do well on tables and dining areas. Japanese Maples and Calla Lilies are also other options that will add beauty and style to any luxe outdoor living space.
