As the new year begins, so do yard transformations begin. In this blog we’ll give you 4 landscaping options you can choose from for your 2021 yard.
As climate change becomes more apparent, many will turn to transforming their yards into eco-friendly landscapes like xeriscapes. By using native and adapted plant species, your yard will use less water to keep these plants thriving. Xeriscaping also helps animals and insects native to the area thrive in finding sources for their food.
Bring in the colors of the year Illuminating Yellow and Ultimate Gray by filling your yard with landscape plantings that boast of yellow blooms and gravel ground cover. This landscaping theme best suits yards with swimming pools. Palm trees and birds of paradise also help create the tropical vibe. Hang a hammock between trees and a fire pit or grill.
For those looking for a safe and calm space within their home, your yard can certainly be that haven. Create a Japanese garden by choosing evergreens of varying heights, shapes, and textures. Aside from evergreen plants, use bamboo for fencing and plantings to create a private atmosphere in your yard. Another key element in a Japanese garden is the water feature such as a fountain, pond, or stream. To fully enjoy the charms of a Japanese garden at night, choose warm lighting to complement and highlight key areas in your garden.
A modern patio suits those with limited yard space as this design focuses on neat space allocation such as grids and containers. Modern patios usually use concrete, wood, or metal in its design. Plant containers or hedge rows prevent plants from growing and spreading into the other parts of your yard. Clean lines and boxed in spaces maximize the space and leave no corner underutilized.
