This Season’s Backyard Design Trends
Landscape Supply of Utah offers a glimpse into 2013’s backyard design trends, which includes:
- Sustainability – Incorporating low-maintenance designs that feature drought-tolerant plants is both environmentally and economically friendly. Whether an area experiences wet winters and dry summers or a combination of weather, selecting plants that are hardy and beautiful is optimal for maintaining a pristine yard year-round.
- Edibles – Gardens contain a beautiful variety of colorful plants. Consider the rainbow lights of Swiss Chard, the pungent and vibrant greens of lettuce, the wispy stalks of onions and vibrant purples of red leaf lettuce – all of these add a stunning touch to any yard. Edible gardens are not only visually appealing, but they incorporate the best of both worlds – healthy vitamin-rich foods and eye appealing pops of color. Additionally, edibles can include a variety of herbs, which pack a colorful and aromatic punch.
- Natural High Quality – Instead of the showy landscapes of yesteryear, the modern homeowner is investing in high quality materials that are natural and environmentally friendly. Whether it’s incorporating natural decorative rock in Utah or large cedar posts, homeowners are striving for yards that are simple, yet beautiful.
- Water Features – Water features Utah are quite beautiful, adding a nice, subtle and peaceful melody of tricking water. This is very Zen-like and relaxing, making any backyard an oasis-like retreat. However, for homeowners on a budget, self-contained water features are an excellent alternative to an expensive backyard overhaul. Whether it’s a small water feature or a high-end waterfall, there are water features to fit any budget.
- Fabrics – Upholstered furniture is no longer just for indoors. Manufacturers are creating waterproof and fade-resistant acrylic materials that help bring a little indoors to any outdoor space. These comfortable fabrics help add a splash of much needed color to any patio or deck.
- Bees and Chickens – Many homeowners are incorporating beehives, veggie gardens, fruit trees and chickens. This is helping create more functional backyards that are embracing the earth-friendly, sustainable movement.
- Pergolas – Incorporating climbing vines, including grapes and flowering perennials, helps soften an outdoor pergola area. Pergolas are extremely popular in the southwest region of the U.S., where sun is abundant. Incorporating an outdoor kitchen, or large cooking area helps take advantage of warm spring nights and hot summer days.
