Many of today’s backyard landscapes are developed with several trends in mind, here are four of the most popular landscape design ideas for 2022 and beyond.
Since working from home is more common now than ever, people want more use out of their homes. People want their yards to have more features, including pools, fireplaces, kitchens, and living areas. A properly-designed landscape can even double as a home office space so one can enjoy the weather while working!
Creating an outdoor living space is a fantastic way to add value to your home and keep your family outdoors.
As food prices and other costs rise, more and more people seek ways to grow their own food. Whether it’s for health reasons to reduce exposure to herbicides, or the sheer enjoyment of working in the garden, this trend is rapidly growing because garden and landscape design offers unlimited possibilities. For example, some people choose to mix flowers and food-yielding plants in their front yard, while others keep all yielding plants in their back yard and have curb appeal focused plants in the front.
The plants in your yard affect the ecosystem in the area. Planting non-native plant species in your yard may look cool, but it may harm animals and existing plants within your property and those neighboring. Planting native plants in your yard helps to promote the natural ecosystem that thrived in the area for centuries. Native plants also help support the natural water tendencies of the soil.
People today are more Eco-friendly than in recent years. Because of this, people use more sustainable methods in gardening and landscape design. The idea is to keep things out of the landfill and reduce your negative impact on the environment.
There are many Eco-friendly methods for landscape design that look great! A very popular option is recycled plastic used to create outdoor furniture.
