Landscaping Design Trends

With spring right around the corner, it is time to start planning your outdoor space for the seasons ahead. Whether you are an avid gardener or someone who is vowing to actually spend more than an hour outside this spring and summer, incorporating the latest landscaping design trends into your outdoor space will result in an enjoyable, beautiful experience.

Three design trends to incorporate into your landscape this year include:

Local Vegetation
Climate is everything when it comes to whether your plants can thrive. Because of this, more and more property owners are choosing to use local plants in their landscape designs. Not only does this help foster the success of the plants, but it also provides a beautiful, effortless base for your space. Some plants that do well in Kansas City landscapes include butterfly bushes, milkweeds, perennial hibiscus, and zinnias.

Tiered Retaining Walls
This stacked version of traditional retaining walls brings new depth to your yard. Built in strategic rows on top of one another, tiered retaining walls give the sloped areas of your lawn stylish structure, while also helping to aid irrigation throughout your property.

High-Tech Accessories
Landscape design doesn’t just have to include hardscaping and the seeds you plant. In fact, many people across the country are incorporating tech into their outdoor spaces. From irrigation systems that link up with your smartphone to landscape LED lighting that can be controlled by an app on your phone and can even change colors with that app! Landscapes are being transformed by the use of high-tech gadgets.
