Landscape Design Trends for 2017

Published on: April 3, 2018

Like any industry, landscaping design has popular trends that come and go. While bright flowers and a lush lawn are always popular, there are certain design aspects that are sought after by homeowners and business owners this year. For 2018, simplicity is key in landscape design. Less is more and a sustainable, green design is one of the biggest concerns. Here are some of the hottest trends in landscaping this year:

  • Landscape in layers. Using scale and layers in landscaping design is a trend that comes and goes – and it is back again in 2017. Putting taller shrubs and trees in the back, then layer forward with medium then shorter plants creates depth in your design.
  • Sustainable gardens. Creating landscaping design that is sustainable is a hot trend that is likely to be around for a while. Gardens and landscaping that are eco-friendly, simple to maintain and use low amounts of water, yet still aesthetic, are good for the planet and beautiful for your yard.
  • Natural elements. From eco-friendly fabrics used on the patio to natural stone for the patio itself, natural elements tie into the green movement for eco-friendly materials. In 2017, more landscape designs will incorporate green and natural products.
  • Edible gardens. Natural and sustainable continue as the theme in landscaping trends, including the edible garden. Planting for food and beauty are possible, giving you something tangible back for your efforts.

If you are interested in exploring simple, green and sustainable landscaping ideas in your yard design this year, talk to your local landscaping company that offers design. They can help you incorporate some of the latest trends into your outdoor space.
