If you’re like most people, you probably don’t think too much about your landscaping until it’s time to start planning your next project.
But if you want to stay ahead of the curve, it’s worth looking at some of the trends that are expected to take off in 2022. Here are trends to watch for.
Cooking with fresh, organic ingredients is no longer an extravagant lifestyle choice–it’s become a health movement. With more people being mindful of their food, kitchen gardens are sprouting up in backyards everywhere.
And if you’re wondering what to do with all that extra produce, think about adding a pizza oven or outdoor barbecue pit so you can turn your extra cucumbers into a delicious meal.
Parties with a Purpose
Not only are backyard parties on the rise, but they’re also having more impact in communities around the world. From fundraisers for charities to political rallies to yoga classes, outdoor parties allow people to celebrate community togetherness and contribute their time and talents to good causes.
Landscaping has undergone many changes in recent years, but there’s one thing that remains timeless–trees. However, many cities are now turning to greener options, with green roofs becoming more popular as an eco-friendly alternative to traditional rooftops.
These roofs are designed to mimic natural ecosystems and absorb carbon dioxide. Artificial turf and plants are often combined to create a lush, green environment that provides insulation and looks great to make the roofs even more attractive.
If you’ve ever wanted to attract wildlife to your yard, consider turning it into a backyard birding destination. Not only will this make it easier for you and your family to spot and identify the birds in your area, but it will also help them spread their wings beyond their natural habitats.
The Social Front Yard
For centuries, the front yard has been nothing more than a place for people to park their cars. But with more people using their yards for entertaining and barbecuing, the front lawn is starting to look like an extension of the home.
And that can lead to conflict in some neighborhoods, where it’s not uncommon to see fences go up–or be required by a homeowners association–to accommodate the needs of different homeowners.
Whether you’re interested in creating a relaxing space around your swimming pool or turning your backyard into a community gathering place, nothing is stopping you from giving it a makeover.
And even if you only install one trend this year, you’ll be ahead of the curve as more and more people start to adopt new landscaping trends.
