People all over are beginning to pay more
attention to the quality of their landscape design and outdoor spaces! The
appeal of a well-maintained, outdoor space—for a backyard party or any other
occasion—is almost universal, but as with anything else, trends come and go.
Let’s take a look at a few of the landscaping trends for spring and summer.
Begin with a simple design strategy. Minimalistic
layouts with contemporary design trends are leading the
way in landscaping details. Keeping it simple and not over-complicating your outside
space is the advice given by landscape architects. Select native plants that can survive in different climates or consider having greenery that can
last multiple seasons while supporting efforts to remain sustainable and
Next, incorporate a hardscape by adding
stone, concrete, and other elements to your outdoor space. Chevron, lattice,
and basket weave patterns can be added to walkways or retaining walls. Adding
these small touches will help enhance the appearance of your newly transformed
landscape. Adding seating areas are a great way to enjoy your outdoor
space for holidays, birthdays, or small family gatherings. Finally, ensure that
your yard is well lit. Outdoor lighting has become more important to
highlight key features in your landscape.
When creating your outdoor space, embrace
your style. Taking a trip to a botanical garden is a great way to dive into
the beauty of plants and take a time out from the pressures of the real world.
Also, when you visit local gardens, you’ll get plenty of great ideas for plants
to add to your own garden!
