Your outdoor area should be an escape for you and your friends and family; a space that’s inviting, comfortable, and beautiful. That’s where landscaping and other details come in. Since landscaping is an investment for your home, upping curb appeal and complementing the house itself, it’s a good idea to make sure you’re keeping up with the trends! Here are the current top landscaping and outdoor decorating trends.
Think perennials rather than annuals so you don’t have to replant every year. Think evergreen shrubs, succulents and cacti, and other low-maintenance plants. Your outdoor space should be enjoyed, not tended to at all times. That’s our job!
And not the shiny kind. All the rage, different kinds of steel and other metals make a great addition, lending edgy and industrial vibes to your outdoor space. Keep it dull so its surface doesn’t reflect harsh light and adds more of a decorative flare. Additionally, these worn pieces also complement worn wood of all shades, another big part of outdoor spaces.
Arguably always on trend, pergolas are a beautiful statement in a backyard space. They provide shade, semi-shelter, and a gorgeous place to bring everyone together. And if you’re really looking to build the space of your dreams, pergolas provide you with a strong foundational piece to add extra elements like lights, shade screens, or even heaters for the cooler months.
With sometimes limited space, furniture and other accents that serve more than one purpose come in handy when it comes to landscaping and outdoor areas. Conversation pieces like benches become storage, privacy fences become plant-covered trellises. Invoke some creativity and be smart with the space you have!
