Hello, 2024! Here are our top residential landscape design trends for the new year:
Luxurious Outdoor Living
Since the pandemic, creating an outdoor space that is an extension of your home with several additional rooms like an outdoor kitchen, dining, and fire pit area has become popular and it isn’t slowing down in 2024.
Natural Hardscaping Material
Flagstone, natural boulders, and travertine are continuing to increase in popularity when it comes to patios, pool decking, and sidewalks. These hardscaping materials provide both a natural and luxurious feel to your landscape.
Some trends lean towards a more minimalist and cohesive look, with a focus on using plants and hardscape elements in a single color palette. There are several colors to choose from when going monochromatic. All white flowers evoke peace and tranquility. Red or yellow evokes energy and excitement.
Designing landscapes that promote mental and physical well-being, incorporating elements like meditation spaces, aromatic plants, and soothing water features are becoming more popular. Installation of natural pools, ponds, and water features that blend harmoniously with the surroundings provide peace and tranquility as well.
Ambiance and More Ambiance
Thoughtful use of outdoor lighting to enhance the ambiance of the landscape during the evening hours, as well as to improve safety and security. Also, consider hanging string lights in trees for a romantic and whimsical feel in your backyard.
Low Maintenance Landscaping
