Spring is here and it’s time to start planting. When it comes to yards, the grass doesn’t have to be greener on the other side. If your yard is looking a bit lackluster, grab a shovel and take a look at a few of the hottest landscaping ideas trending this year. Who knows, by the end of the season, your yard might be the envy of the neighborhood.
If you’ve got kids, your yard needs to be both aesthetically pleasing and functional. Consider a whimsical wooded theme as you plan out your landscaping. By adding trees, pergolas, and a swing to your yard, you create a wonderland that seems as if it’s straight out of a storybook. Don’t forget to include your kids in the planning phase!
Not all landscape designs are filled with trees, grass, and flowers. Some of the sleekest designs don’t involve dirt at all. If you love clean lines and modern elements, consider using stone in your landscaping. By mixing shaped pavers with stones and gravel, you can create a stylish look that is polished and perfect.
For a more Zen feel, consider adding a few water features to your landscaping. Waterfalls, streams, and small ponds are becoming increasingly popular among homeowners. Whether you choose a tropical feel or something a bit more mountain-esque, making your water feature your own is the best way to enjoy your yard.
If you’re short on space but still want the perfectly landscaped yard, consider stacking your greenery. Terraced gardening is an easy way to bring some color to your area. If you’re looking for a rustic look, construct your terrace out of wood. You can even construct the terrace out of concrete for a more contemporary outdoor setting.
No outdoor garden would be complete without flowers. If you’re looking to create your own secret garden, don’t be afraid to plant many different types of blooms. Wild flowers, roses, and ground covering create the perfect romantic combination. Add a few fountains and sculptures for an even more interesting yard.
