Not too long ago we celebrated a new year, so you know that means there are new trends and ideas for landscaping. Just like fashion, landscaping styles change from year to year. Stay in the know and check out these landscaping trends for 2017.
Edible gardens may have been overlooked and forgotten over the past couple of years, but they are making a comeback to the landscaping scene. Use this trend to help your healthy eating resolution for the new year if you have one. Fresh fruit and vegetable gardens are not only aesthetically pleasing, but they provide healthy food options that you and your family can enjoy. An edible garden will also help maintain or jumpstart a vegetarian diet.
A Natural Look
Highly organized gardens are always nice but gardeners are starting to try a natural look for their gardens. This means letting it get a little wild and growing more than usual. Make your garden look more natural by adding wildflowers and ornamental grasses. Save yourself some time as well by adding native plants because they are easier to maintain than other exotic options.
More Water Features
If you enjoy relaxing outside by a pond, then this is a trend to follow. The sound of running water can be soothing and help you wind down after a long day. More people are installing ponds and waterfalls to complement their gardens. Adding water features to your landscape provides another element of nature to your front or backyard. Water fountains are a nice feature to give a bare lawn more curb appeal. They also mesh well with patios and are a great centerpiece for your outdoor party space.
