Both gardening and landscaping are integral parts of the homeowner lifestyle for many people. Having a well-designed yard is about more than just looking nice (although that is important too). Many people also take joy in the work of designing and maintaining a beautiful yard. The work itself is a form of exercise and relaxation, and it is made even better by that feeling of satisfaction with the finished product. As you dream away the dreary winter months, keep these landscaping trends in mind for 2021.
Make your yard a “fruitful” part of the house by growing food that you can eat because it makes your yard not only a relaxing hobby but an excellent way to save on your grocery budget. Choosing to devote some or all of your yard to edible plants doesn’t mean sacrificing aesthetics, either. Many plants that provide food are also very visually appealing, and growing your food is also a favorable environmental decision.
Construct Compelling Outdoor Areas
One of the best things you can include in your yard is an outdoor living space that allows you to bring some of your home to the outdoors. The 2021 trend is going to be making these spaces unique and compelling. After a year of staying at home, it is no surprise that people are looking to make their personal spaces comparable to luxury vacation ones. Think about including speaker systems, good lighting, focal items (like fire pits), and comfortable furniture to achieve this.
This trend is all about reusing mundane and sometimes surprising things to create beauty in your landscaping. Old windows and doors, tires, buckets, even unused buildings can all become beautiful artistic additions to the yard.
Create Private Retreats
Your yard should be an oasis, and one way to achieve that is to emphasize privacy. Create areas that are secluded, away from prying eyes. Use tall plants and hardscaping to block sight and sounds as much as possible, so you feel like you’re getting away from the world.
