Building, Remodeling, and So Much More

Contractors start by building a home. Years later, different contractors may come and remodel or make repairs to that home. Meanwhile, other construction workers will be building and maintaining the roads leading to that home. All of these workers are working at different times, but their work affects the others. If the first builder, for example, does a thorough job building a home, the remodeling contractor will have an easier time.

Whether you are building a new home and need landscaping ideas or want to update your current outdoor space, you will want to take advantage of new trends in landscape design in 2021. Today's landscapes are both practical and beautiful. Designs that require minimal maintenance without sacrificing aesthetic value make life at home easier, whether you are enjoying an evening with your family or entertaining friends.

(1)  Edible and ornamental gardens

Gardens that combine both edible and ornamental vegetation are hot in landscape design for 2021. More homeowners are expressing an interest in growing their own fruits and vegetables. However, traditional gardens are being replaced by practical and pretty gardens that give you the best of both worlds.

Expect to see a variety of fruit trees growing in these combination gardens. Adding edible elements to your landscape design makes it easy to share your bounty with neighbors as a community outreach.

(2) Sustainability and maintainability

Gone are the days when most homeowners had to spend every minute of their free time maintaining their landscape. New landscape designs take advantage of low-maintenance plants that can stand up to the elements and do not require a lot of upkeep. Less turf grass and more drought-tolerant plants make it easy to have a beautiful outdoor space even if you do not have a green thumb.

Using more perennials and less annual flowering plants is also one option to consider. A landscape designed with perennials means you can have flowering plants blooming across multiple seasons with minimal maintenance.

(3) Less showy, more natural elements

Elaborate and showy lawns are being phased out by a more natural appearance. Stone walls and natural wood elements, rich with the colors of nature, are replacing bold colors in outdoor elements. Expect to see simple wooden arbors, pergolas, and natural stone borders in yards.

Nature-inspired in-ground ponds and water elements are springing up in backyards. Water walls and chunky stone fountains add natural beauty without being showy or over the top.

Investing in a great landscape design is a wise decision you will reap the rewards of for years to come. These landscape trends are a perfect fit for homeowners who want to make the most of their property. Whether you want to grow your own food or have a great backyard for relaxing or entertaining, 2021 landscape designs will not disappoint. For more information, contact a landscape design service
