4 Landscaping Trends of 2017


These days, it’s all about keeping the garden and lawn care to a minimum without sacrificing visual appeal. This trend focuses on an environmental approach to landscaping, encouraging species that don’t need a lot of water and allowing the natural course of life to determine the greenery that grows best on your property.

Edible Gardens

Having a vegetable garden as the centerpiece of your backyard is one of the leading trends in 2017. It is easy growing your food, and planting a variety of organic vegetables can add a colorful component to your landscaping. A section of yard dedicated to a garden will also cut back on the amount of mowing you need to do during the spring and summer months.

Water is always a popular addition to landscape design. It can be something as small as a garden fountain or as large as a full waterfall attached to the patio. These pieces can usually be custom-made and will provide an attractive component to any part of your property.

Outdoor Rooms

Creating an outdoor space where your family can enjoy a quiet evening together is another popular trend this year. Whether it’s a sunken fire pit surrounded by decorative chairs or an open patio complete with a fully equipped grill station, this option could easily increase the aesthetics and value of the property.
