What’s in a landscaping trend?
Everyone’s thumb is a different shade of green, which means turning over a new leaf in the garden can feel like turning a mountain on its head. Vifloor understands that we all have an assortment of comfort levels when it comes to identifying key changes in landscaping trends and harnessing the great outdoors – so that’s where we come in.
Don’t throw the bird out with the bathwater on the landscape update – we’ve got the boiled-down blueprint for your dream backyard below.
2023 and accessibility
It’s less rock and more roll-friendly terrain in the foundation of this next landscaping wave as 2023 crafts a more inclusive space. While accessibility has always been important, landscape architects are now working mobility issues into design considerations more regularly as we adapt to accommodate our population’s boomer demographic.
These changes look like firm pathways wide enough for wheelchairs and walking aids, while implementing sturdy furniture that is easy to get in and out of.
Petal to (the) metals in the garden
It’s time to bench Regina George and let James Hetfield shine – it’s metals over plastics in the garden this season. Looking to the kitchen as an example of how materials can date or update your space; consider metal incorporations the stainless steel of the outdoors. Professionals are incorporating the new medium through shade structures, artistic panels, water features, planter boxes and more.
Make it your own and bring it into your furniture, lawn accessories, or anywhere you see fit – after all, life is for your own to live your own way.
It’s not real, and it’s not fake: its artificial grass
2023 says, “When the going gets tough, the tough go low maintenance.” That’s why our Emerald Landscape Grass emulates that work smarter, not harder, modern attitude. From homeowners to property managers, artificial grass is the outdoor renovation trick that everyone is turning to for its year-round maintenance-free look and big-picture bang per buck.
Providing years of savings on maintenance, care and water, Emerald Landscape Grass’ one-time cost pays it forward in dividends to help owners create the landscaping of their dreams.
Inside meets outside: the entanglement of the year
Landscaping trends say tis the season to take it outside – but there’s no need to drop the gloves. Seamlessly blending indoor and outdoor spaces, landscapers are blurring the lines by choosing comfortable and luxurious materials for outdoor furniture, noting the recent improvement in fabric dyes that hold their pigment and resist sun bleaching.
Taking this design technique further, renovators are also choosing to integrate marble granite in table structures just like you would see inside. Other means of creating this effect include opening the home to the yard through folding glass doors, pergolas, shade structures, verandas and partially covered gardens. It’s just like the simple days – only this time, the teachers are encouraging you to meet out back once class is out.
Good things grow in good soil
Finishing with the best piece of gardening advice ever given: the difference between a weed and a flower is whether or not you like it. Extending the concept to trends, what’s right for the masses might only be right for those spaces. When you find yourself repeatedly Googling what constitutes entangled design, take a step back and remember the spirit of 2023 landscaping is low maintenance, long-term wear and comfort-oriented.
The foundation of this next wave was built for you – so take it from Vifloor, and stand with confidence when you build the backyard of your dreams from the ground up.
