Summer is fast approaching, and with many people spending nearly all their time at home these days, having a backyard you can truly enjoy day in and day out is more important than ever. From outdoor living spaces to gardens to simple aesthetics, the homeowners of DFW are looking to make the most of their yards.
There are some new trends in landscape design in 2020, and luckily at CGreens we are a lot more than just another Dallas lawn care company. We are landscape designers, so we have a couple of trends to go over with you to make sure your yard is ready for this year and years to come.
The trend is here to stay. Having a nice pond, or some running water are great ways to spruce up your yard and give a garden a very peaceful feel. The fact that water features are very versatile, and come in all shapes and sizes is a huge plus. This allows people with yards of any size to take advantage of them.
Growing Fruits and Vegetables
Having a garden to grow your own fruits and vegetables for your family has been a growing trend for a while. Gardens don’t require a lot of space to be productive, and maintaining the garden can be both a fun and educational activity for parents to share with their children. And of course, you get the satisfaction of watching the seeds you planted grow into food that you get to eat!
On the same trend of gardens, growing wildflowers in gardens has become increasingly popular. The biggest reason is that if you find them in your area, you know they will be able to grow naturally in your garden with little to no extra maintenance. They also just give your garden a special flair to differentiate yourself from your neighbors. It’s a a beautiful, low maintenance way to show off.
In the past few years, more and more homeowners have converted their backyard from simple yard to full-on living space with the installation of an outdoor kitchen. Outdoor cooking/entertaining spaces give you so many options when having guests over. They make the yard feel like more of a part of the house and are a great way to instantly differentiate your yard from someone else’s.
If you’re interested in taking your yard to the next level with a fabulous outdoor kitchen our living space, contact C Greens. We specialize in outdoor kitchen design and installation in Dallas, North Dallas, Highland Park, Frisco, Plano and throughout the Metroplex.
Currently the most popular color is, by far, shades of blue. Blue is considered a relaxing color, and it is a very natural color that makes it popular in outdoor spaces. In this same vein, plants with blue flowers are all the rage. They make gardens eye-catching and unique. When it comes to your patio space, blue rugs, pillows, or even some blue porcelain tiles are welcome
While natural stone will remain popular, other forms of masonry such as porcelain or subway tile that have traditionally been reserved for indoors are beginning to popup in outdoor spaces. By adding durable “indoor materials” to outdoor spaces, homeowners can make their outdoor spaces feel more like a part of their home.
Smart irrigation systems
Lastly, another big trend is revamping irrigation systems to give homeowners more control. Starting in 2018 smart home technologies took massive steps into the mainstream. One major segment of this market that we expect to continue to grow is smart irrigation systems. These systems allow homeowners to program their watering cycles to use the rain and weather cycles to water their yards in the most efficient way possible. Some even allow homeowners to control everything from their smartphones.
