4 Landscaping Trends for 2017

Warm weather and long days are on the horizon! Time to get your yard in shape for summer!


According to the National Association of Landscape Professionals these are this years top four landscaping trends:


1. GO GREEN, the color green!

Different textures and shapes create a dramatic garden. Different size and shape of leaves, look for a variety of verdant hues.

2. GO GREEN, the earth-friendly plan!

Seek out sustainable landscape designs which have become more popular over the past few years. Why? It's better for the planet and can reduce maintenance costs. For example, more homeowners are planting “smart” lawns – varieties of grass bred to stay green using less water.

3. GIVE BEES A CHANCE

The bee population is in trouble! People are beginning to "invite" BEES into their yard by planting native plants that provide the nectar they feast on. We must work together to save vital pollinators.

4. GOING DANISH

The Danish concept of hygge is to create an atmosphere of coziness by embracing simple pleasures. How do you implement hygge in your yard? Add features that promote mindfulness, such as water fountains or aromatic flowers, and arrange seating in a way that encourages conversation. And don’t forget to include spaces that inspire play, bocce courts, fireplaces and hammocks – for kids and adults!
