Landscaping Trends to Try Today

Achieving a curated and well-designed property is often attributed to landscaping. Today, there are new trends emerging left and right, giving you the chance to achieve the property of your dreams. So, if you are interested in reinventing your style and the overall look of your place, here are some landscape design trends to try today:

Sustainable Lawns

This 2018, it’s all about sustainability. In fact, this seems to be one of the biggest trends for the year, with more people wanting to build an eco-friendly and sustainable option in beautifying their lawns.

One way to achieve this is by creating pollinator-friendly gardens. This helps protect pollinators such as bees and butterflies, allowing them to increase plant species over time. Another way is by adding energy-saving devices such as LED light bulbs for your pathways, swimming pool and water fountains. If you want to take it to another level, include upcycling household goods and use composite woods.

Edible Greens

As an offshoot of sustainable lawns, one of the stronger trends these days is having an edible garden. With more homeowners realising the benefits of a farm-to-table (or garden-to-table) approach, this trend will certainly have a continued patronage. Aside from allowing homeowners to grow their own fruits, vegetables and herbs, they can be sure that these are free from harmful chemicals and pesticides.

A garden like this makes for a fun learning experience for the whole family. They make planting a great way for everyone to learn about seeds and plants, whilst bonding with each other.

Hygge

Scandinavian aesthetic finds itself influencing more than just the interior of a house. They are all about maximising comfort and embracing natural elements. If you follow their aesthetic, you can channel their cosiness and bring this to your outdoor space as well.

Try adding a fire pit or even fairy lights for a warm and unique lighting fixture. Don’t forget to surround your space with plants in vivid and pastel colours to create texture and contrast.
