Warmer weather and longer days are just around the corner, which means spending more time enjoying the great outdoors. And the great outdoors starts right in your own backyard. Are you ready for summer? Whether you are or not, here are a few trends to provide a little bit of landscaping inspiration.
While it’s important to keep sustainability in mind, that’s not exactly what we’re talking about here. When we say “go green,” we mean it literally! The color green and all variations of it are making statements in lawns across the nation. If you’re not sure where to start with this trend, try something simple. Mixing leaves of different sizes and colors in your lawn can create a beautiful, textured look. In addition, plants in a variety of colors or in shades that complement your lawn or patio design can be a great place to start.
It’s no secret that bee populations are struggling right now. With that knowledge in mind, creating your lawn to support these pollinators is pretty simple! The first step is doing some research. Which flowering plants are native to your area? Which are the most helpful to bees? Once you know these things, you can gather the appropriate flora and create a garden that not only looks beautiful, it helps foster local bee populations. Supporting the environment has never been so aesthetically pleasing.
Invest in Hygge
The Danish concept of ‘hygge’ is all about embracing the simple pleasures in life to create an incredibly cozy environment. And who says the outdoors can’t be cozy? Landscape designers have been implementing simplistic features that encourage mindfulness such as water features or aromatic plants as a starting point. In addition, you may consider adding a hammock or a fire pit to your patio design for a relaxing social space.
Almost 64% of homeowners addressing outdoor spaces are starting with their backyard. Is it time for an update in your lawn? If these summer trends or any others interest you, don’t wait. Summer won’t last forever, and a newer, more beautiful lawn awaits!
