January 2019 is here and it’s time to start planning your new landscape with this year’s top trends. Outdoor living, water features, sustainability and edible gardens are all design features that not only enhance your outdoor space but are beneficial for the environment.
Bring the indoors out! A major trend in landscaping that will continue through 2019 is outdoor living. More and more people are wanting to bring the comfort of their homes outside to their patios and backyards. Adding comfortable patio furniture, firepits and televisions makes you feel as if you are sitting inside in your living room, but you’re surrounded by the sounds of nature. Outdoor kitchens with a stove, sink, counter space and bar tops are also a big hit, creating the ultimate experience for entertaining guests. By hiring an Alpine Gardens professional, we can help you design an outdoor space that fits your lifestyle and needs.
Water features are a popular trend in landscaping for 2019. Water features are designed to fit your style of landscape whether you are looking for a natural rock look, modern or charming style. Installing a water feature gives you instant relaxation with the comforting sounds of flowing water. Take your mind off daily stresses and enjoy the calming effect of a water feature.
Green landscaping is designed to conserve water and energy and reduce waste. By planting trees and plants native to Colorado, you can help to sustain their life and growth for the future. Planting organic fruits and vegetables also creates healthier options for you and your family. Using compost and other green manures can help supply nutrients and prevent soil erosion during runoff. Having a sprinkler system installed and scheduling routine maintenance will help save cost and energy.
As people become increasingly more health-conscious, planting edible gardens can add a nice touch to your backyard, while also providing you with fresh produce on hand. You can add edible gardens by installing grow boxes or sectioning off an area of your space for fresh vegetables and herbs. Working in your own garden will allow you to reap the benefits of your hard work and will give you the comfort of knowing where your food is coming from.
