Trends In Landscaping

Looking for landscaping inspiration and ideas? You’ve come to the right place to learn the latest trends and ones that never go out of style. Having been in the landscaping business for 30 years, we know what works best here in Bucks County. You might be seeing Monstera plants on your Instagram, but this tropical plant from central America won’t hold up to our cold winters.

Multiseason Landscaping

Planting for all seasons means that there will always be something in bloom. As soon as one plant is done putting on a show, another will start to flourish. The way to plan for this type of landscape is by grouping plants by season. From there, you can select the ones that will best complement each other. Planting for all seasons will leave you with a beautiful property year-round.

Native Plants

Most property owners want a good return on their landscaping investment. A landscape that lasts through the seasons, year after year. One of the best ways to do that is by using native plants. Not only are they accustomed to the Bucks County environment, but they’ll take less upkeep over time. Consider adding native wildflowers such as white dogwood or purple coneflower. Both of these play a critical role in the health of the natural ecosystem and crop production.

Stonework

Patios are a timeless landscape feature. Subtle and classic, they provide a focal point for your outdoor living space. Very low maintenance and extreme durability will give you one less thing to worry about. An investment towards a new or upgraded patio will last decades. Avoiding pitfalls such as concrete pads or cheap materials will save you money down the road, too. Do you enjoy entertaining? A new or upgraded patio is the right choice.

Food Gardening

Healthy eating and COVID have sparked a wave of food gardening. Planting something that is both beautiful and edible is about as practical as it gets, and we don’t see this trend going away anytime soon. Plants like tomatoes, peppers, onions, cabbage, and brussel sprouts have a long growing season that goes well into Fall. Mixing in some plants with shorter growing seasons like carrots, kale, or beets will bring some variety along the way.

Lighting

Landscape lighting is a great way to add beauty, safety, and added value to your property. Outdoor spaces can be transformed with landscape lighting by accenting plants, hardscapes, and the architecture of your home. In addition, adding lights along pathways, staircases, and driveways will make it safer to navigate during the night. Landscape lighting will add value to your home and improve your overall home experience, especially when it comes to entertaining!
