Summer-time is the perfect time to get outside and enjoy time with nature. So far, 2021 is shaping up to be the year for outdoor retreats and hardscaping designs. It’s not too early to start on your summer plans. Here are some of our favorite new trends to try this summer as you start your design plans. 

  1. The Front Yard As the Hot Hangout Spot

After a year of Zoom meetings and long-distance gatherings, the front yard has become the hot new spot for hanging out. You can safely chat with neighbors or simply enjoy the view. The new trend is a front yard designed to entertain and invite. Consider adding a front deck, new porch, small patio, or gazebo to make the most of your front landscaping.

  1. Outdoor Living Spaces that Add New Life 

Outdoor living spaces and outdoor entertainment spaces are still a hot trend for families of all sizes. From outdoor kitchens to pool patios to fire pits, these spaces bring a whole new level of fun and relaxation to your home. You can customize your outdoor living spaces to suit your style and your hobbies. Create a spa-like retreat or a fun family getaway, or even a sleek kitchen to entertain friends. Even better, these spaces let you safely enjoy time with friends and family. 

  1. Outdoor Lighting Takes Center Stage

As more people start to enjoy outdoor living, landscape lighting designs will become more important. As you start your design, think about how you can light it for evening entertaining or simply relaxing after work. Make sure to include pathway lighting, layered lighting, and accent lighting for a beautiful effect. 

  1. Edible Gardens

Over the last year, people have begun turning their attention to gardens that deliver delicious treats. In fact, almost everyone is loving the farm-to-table trend.  Imagine coming home to freshly made salsa, salads, fruits, or soups. Yum! A trusted professional landscaper can help you plant a bountiful garden that doesn’t wreck your design. 

  1. A Room With a View

With more people working or learning from home, outdoor views have become more important. Be sure to consider the views outside your office, bedroom, and kitchen areas as you start your landscape plans. Take some inspiration from some of your favorite locales and add an English garden, water feature, or touches of the French countryside.
