Welcome spring in by making some changes to your landscape! These trends are still in play and are worth the investment. What are they? Let’s find out!
The Backyard Living Space
One super popular trend involves building up your backyard. Turn it into another living space as the temperatures warm up and you want to get some fresh air. It can be a great place to relax through the spring, summer, and fall, and you have at least the deck enclosed, then you can go outside to take in the view without feeling like you need to go outside! Don’t forget about water features or fire features to help bring it up a notch!
A Diverse Garden
Another idea is to expand and diversify your garden. For example, you can start growing lettuce, tomatoes, and carrots or other types of food along with the flowers and trees you use to help boost the curb appeal of your front yard or to make your backyard more colorful than it used to be! Pot up some herbs or use hanging planters to take advantage of vertical growing techniques even when you have a small yard.
Using Focal Points
Yet another suggestion we have for you is to try to use focal points as anchors for your yard. Mix and match some hardscaping features like retaining walls, stone benches, other fire features for those chillier days, and planters installed on statement walls to help draw the eye of all your visitors at some point in early summer.
Going Low Maintenance
Finally, try going lower maintenance with all of your landscaping features. Put some perennial plants in your garden so that they will grow back every year without much input from you. Also, use an irrigation system so you don’t have to walk around and water everything by hand, which can get exhausting.
