Summer Landscaping Trends
Are you looking for some ideas to make your home's landscape more appealing? Here are some creative ideas that will make your outdoor space attractive and will have your neighbors green with envy!
When planning your landscaping strategy, include mostly perennial plants that will come back each year and group them based on their watering needs—incorporating plants with flowers that complement the color if your home will make a lasting impression. Add a few scented plants for some aromatherapy that will bring a sense of tranquility to your outdoor space that can be enjoyed individually or with guests.
Do your research when selecting hardscaping materials. Choose quality stones that won't require repair after a short amount of time. Investing in outdoor furniture that you want to sit in is crucial, especially if you plan on spending more time outdoors. Include lighting to make your outdoor space easy to access when it gets dark out.
To get the most out of your landscape, in various weather conditions, homeowners incorporate elements like outdoor heaters and covered fixtures to extend the use of their outdoor space. If you are still unsure about how to update your garden, download a free landscaping app to guide you through designing an existing space. Most apps provide 2-D and 3-D layouts based on your property's measurements, with an extensive inventory of plants, trees, and shrubs that you can select and place into your design.
Landscaping trends this season are geared toward peaceful relaxation and creating a space that brings health and happiness. Spending time outdoors with your family and friends will help you maintain and increase your overall sense of well-being. Put on some shades, and enjoy the sunshine!
