The Latest Lawn and Gardening Trends
2019 is upon us. It’s time to look forward to the landscaping trends that we anticipate for spring.
To celebrate the new year, Nixa Lawn Service looks at some of the latest lawn and gardening trends. If you’re considering revising your outdoor space to better enjoy the warmer months, we hope these landscaping trends will assist you with upgrading your yard.
As the availability of LED and solar options increase, so does homeowners’ interest in widespread lighting. After the sun sets, you don’t have to leave your landscape in the dark. The right lights can cast shadows, which give your trees and plants a new look. Adding night lighting to your landscape also improves home security and creates curb appeal. More homes are featuring lit up pathways that lead to the front door. Expect outdoor lighting to be a major trend in 2019.
Outdoor Spaces to Relax and Entertain
Delayed flights, expensive airfares, and potentially stolen luggage can make traveling a real hassle these days, especially if you have a large family. It takes time to plan and execute a week-long trip. That’s why more homeowners are creating a comfortable atmosphere in their own backyards. Whether you want to enjoy a romantic evening or a have a relaxing family gathering, patios are the perfect night-time social areas.
As home prices continue to rise, more and more homeowners are planning to make their current home their forever home. This aspect combined with the staycation trend provides homeowners good reasons to upgrade their outdoor living spaces.
More families are striving to live in their landscape rather than just admiring it. Fire pits and fireplaces compliment an outdoor patio and are useful year-round. Surrounding your fire pit with comfortable lawn furniture adds an element of relaxation to your experience. While advanced fire features have made basic campfires a thing of the past, the end goal remains the same. The warmth of a fire is always inviting, as friends and family enjoy each other’s company.
More People Getting Outside
Americans spend about 90 percent of their time either indoors or in vehicles. Nowadays, children are spending half as much time as their parents did outside. Between watching Netflix, browsing retail websites on our laptops and playing on our smartphones, we have plenty of reasons to stay inside. But people have a real need to reconnect with nature and regain its therapeutic effects. Looking ahead to the new year, parents will continue cutting their children’s screen time and instead will push them to partake in outdoor activities.
