The landscaping industry is changing. As a result, the old trends are becoming outdated, and new ones are emerging. In this article, we will discuss some of the hottest trends in landscaping for 2021 that you should be following to stay ahead of the curve!
1. Going Native
One of the hottest trends in landscaping is to have a natural-looking outdoor space. That’s why many homeowners and designers choose to forgo synthetic turf and are instead opting for natural grass or even sod (which can be grown locally).
Synthetic turf always has that fake look and feel, making people uncomfortable sitting on it. It also doesn’t hold up well against wear and tear from kids playing sports or pets running around. On the other hand, there’s nothing quite like a lush patch of green grass underfoot!
2. Vertical Gardens
Vertical gardens are a new trend that has emerged in recent years. They can be used to grow food, provide habitat for local wildlife, or act as an aesthetic addition to your yard.
These plants may be on the ground level or placed at a height that requires a ladder or steps to access them. Vertical gardens are becoming an instant hit among homeowners looking to elevate the curb appeal of their property.
3. Unique Outdoor Lighting
Outdoor lighting can now be used to create multiple effects depending on your choice of lighting and how you integrate them into your landscape. For instance, some people want their outdoor spaces to feel like the inside; others are drawn towards more natural-looking designs that imitate lanterns or torches.
Aesthetics aside, light provides so many benefits, which is why outdoor fixtures have become one of our most popular categories for a unique house look.
4. Getting Creative with Containers
Instead of opting for traditional planters and pots, you can switch things up using wheelbarrows, shoes, and other such eccentric containers. Or maybe even embark on a DIY project.
Container gardening can be a lot of fun. It is also a great way to get your hands dirty with the kids, as there are many different types and sizes that you can choose from.
5. Multi-Season Green
Planting a new garden every season is a headache no one wants to take, so planting evergreens is a great idea as you won’t have to put effort into replanting and fertilizing. Moreover, you don’t have to worry about dead or dormant plants come winter.
