If April showers bring May flowers, then what do May flowers bring? They bring us outside into the backyard, that’s what! After all, a little color in the garden bed, some warmer weather and a bit of extra sunshine are exactly what we’ve waited for all winter, right? We can finally sit on our porches, play ball with the kids, do some gardening and relax in our lawn chairs on the back patio. And this May—more than any other—we’ll be spending more time than we ever thought possible in our own backyards—thanks to the continued pandemic.
But more time spent at home can be a good thing. It’s the perfect opportunity to tackle all of those little projects you’ve always wanted to complete. And now you have no excuse, especially when it comes to your curb appeal or backyard landscaping. If you’ve saved a few bucks by cutting back on shopping, eating out or vacationing, why not throw those savings into the upgrades you’ve always wanted for your property? Our pros at Castle Point Landscape Design have the skills and designs to transform any dull backyard into an attractive oasis.
Here are the top three landscaping trends for the season and great ways we can make your home the envy of all of your neighbors.
Fire Pits on the Back Patio
Fire pits are all the rage. And whether you prefer a wood-burning or gas-powered option, we can help build a foundation that’ll create the perfect look. Our masonry experts are certified by the Interlocking Concrete Paving Institute and the National Concrete Masonry Association. We have the experience and knowledge to install all types of fire pits and build other hardscaping creations, too. Add a new fire pit with a natural stone wall or have a stone paver patio installed underneath. You’ll love the look and enjoy the cozy warmth on chilly nights.
Geometric Designs in Hardscaping
The newest trend in hardscaping is to incorporate geometric designs or patterns into your décor. Add things like lattices, basket weave or chevron patterns into your walkways, patios, retaining walls or fire pit designs. Just a touch of creativity goes a long way—making your outdoor space both unique and trendy!
Simple Landscape Designs
Homeowners this year are into sleek and simple design. Choose landscaping that is modern and not too intricate. Adding flair—while keeping things understated—is also on everyone’s radar. Try incorporating heat lamps, extra sturdy or plush greenery and sharp, clean retaining walls into your entertaining space. This season, garden beds that look clean and well manicured with pops of blue flowers also will impress.
