Design trends come and go each year, and landscape design is no different. When it comes to planning your landscaping for 2019, from gardening to hardscaping, to deck maintenance and more, we’ve got you covered. Check out these 4 major landscaping trends to look out for this year to keep your outdoor space current, aesthetically appealing, and well-maintained.
1. Backyard Retreats
A growing trend in landscaping is building a relaxing outdoor oasis. Make your backyard a destination where you can kick your feet up and unwind all spring, summer, and even into the fall. A water feature or fire pit feature can make your backyard the perfect staycation spot for friends and family. There’s no need to leave home to escape the outside world with your own personal oasis!
2. Garden with All Types of Plants
Gardens can be more than an aesthetic feature when it comes to your landscaping. One current gardening trend is to include food in all types of gardens. Not only will you be able to give back to your soil by gardening, but you’ll be able to enjoy the fruits of your landscaping–literally. Even growing herbs in a pot on your deck or hanging planter can add a naturalistic, unexpected element to your landscaping that you can cook with.
3. Building a Structural Focus
Hardscaping is a huge trend in landscaping, and the upcoming year will only see more natural stone walls and fire features. You can even build a natural stone statement wall with bench seating for a modern, functional touch. Put planters on top of a statement wall to make the perfect focal point that will make a great first impression on your guests while providing seating for entertainment all summer long.
4. Low Maintenance Landscaping
Lastly, keep things simple. By considering maintenance in your landscape design, you can limit any landscaping stress and simply enjoy your outdoor space. By taking steps like including perennial plants in your gardening and installing an irrigation system in your yard, you can make all your outdoor maintenance quick and easy. There’s no better way to relax and enjoy your landscaping this year.
