The summer season is a great time to make changes to your landscape. It’s the perfect time to study your landscape layout and create plans for any changes. Your landscape does a lot to increase your home’s curb appeal, which is why your leading landscaper in Norman, OK, Sherwood Gardens, shares the biggest trends in residential landscaping this year.
Shades of Blue
Rich shades of blue are predicted to be the color of choice for not only indoor remodeling but also for landscaping projects this year. Homeowners are predicted to add more blues into their landscapes using sculptures or water features. For their gardens, adding plants such as blue fortune, delphinium, hydrangea or grape hyacinth, all help give their greens a new pop of blue.
More Garden Additions
Forecasts state that homeowners will continue to add gardens into their landscapes that provide functionality. Rather than creating a garden just for show, homeowners are creating gardens to cater to their personal needs, such as creating a garden to produce their favorite fruits, vegetables, and herbs. For smaller gardens, owners are adding vertical gardens or container gardens. This new style is coined as “interiorscaping” that creates a vibrant outdoor garden. With that said, one of the best ways to make your garden shine, and highlight them during the evening is through the addition of outdoor lighting. They draw attention to the beauty of your garden at night and help illuminate your landscape.
Sustainable design is gaining popularity in every industry as consumers are becoming more environmentally conscious. Naturally, landscaping already has eco-friendly benefits, but they can be optimized further. The best thing you can do is replace your lawn with a native garden space that eliminates pollutants and makes your landscape much more lively. Choosing the right soil and plants helps as well since some do not need chemical additives and require less water. Overall, incorporating eco-friendly designs into your landscape makes maintenance a lot easier.
