It’s a new year, and with every new year comes new design trends—including in landscaping.
The National Association of Landscape Professionals recently released their picks for the top landscaping trends of 2020. Some of the biggest trends poised to take over lawns across the US this year include:
- Multi-season landscape design. As homeowners become more cost and environmentally conscious in 2020, expect to see more versatile choices in landscape design—including choosing plants and other elements with multi-season functionality and the ability to thrive in a variety of temperatures and climates.
- All things blue. With different shades of blue being chosen as the color of the year by a variety of design outlets (including Pantone and Sherwin-Williams), the hue is going to be everywhere in 2020—including in landscape design. Expect to see pops of blue (think sculptures and water features) to show up in on-trend outdoor spaces in the upcoming year.
- One-click irrigation systems. Properly irrigating your lawn used to be an expensive, time-consuming process. But thanks to new technology and more high-tech irrigation systems, in 2020, homeowners have the ability to control their irrigation system remotely, delivering the perfect amount of water at the perfect time with the click of a smartphone app—saving time, money, and water in the process.
What does this mean for you? If you’re thinking about selling your home in 2020, you want to make sure your landscaping feels timely and on-trend—and now that you know the top landscaping trends for 2020, all that’s left to do is get outside and get your yard up to par!
