Landscaping? Here Are 7 Trendy Ideas to Make the Most of Your Space

October 22, 2022

If you’re planning on redesigning your backyard, there’s a lot to think about. Hiring professional landscapers is definitely a good place to start because you’ll need someone to tell you what is and isn’t possible based on the space you have.

That being said, you’ll also want to have some level of creative freedom in the design, so make sure to talk openly with your landscapers about what you would like to see in the finished product.

If you’re not exactly sure what you want or what’s trendy in landscaping in 2022, here are a few ideas to get you started.

Stone Walls

Swapping out standard brick walls or wooden fencing for a stone wall in your backyard is a major trend right now, and for good reason. These walls not only look amazing, minimalist, and natural, but they also have a great cooling effect on the area.

Additionally, many landscapers are choosing retaining wall pavers for a perfect mix of outdoor beauty and erosion prevention. The natural stone look brings a cool, minimalist feel to your backyard and the design will prevent soil erosion from taking place and allowing soil to spill over onto your walkway.

More Greenery

Incorporating more greenery into your backyard might sound silly, but landscaping projects often lean towards extravagant water features, decks, and paving, rather than enhancing the natural beauty of your hard – however, that is starting to change.

Focus on bringing plants into your yard that will thrive in the particular conditions you have. You can even bring planters and pots with more greenery onto your deck or patio. Even vertical gardens have grown in popularity, increasing your real estate for more plants which is a great option for smaller yards.

Minimalist Designs

Speaking of dropping the extravagance, landscaping trends are starting to match the pace of the current view on home décor, which is that less is more. A minimalist garden and patio area is not only trendy but low maintenance when it comes to taking care of it.

Going for a minimalist design also eliminates the risk of you starting to feel bored with over-the-top design choices or excessive décor.

Modular Furniture

Opting for modular furniture is a great option for your outdoor living space for a few reasons. First of all, it aligns with the minimalist theme that was previously mentioned. Modular furniture can be shifted and combined in different ways, which allows for subtle changes in your design that can keep things exciting.

Modular furniture in a neutral colour palette is a great way to keep things simple on your patio or deck, as you’ll always have the option to bring some colour and life into the mix with bold throw cushions, vases, and other decorative pieces.

Outdoor Cooking

Outdoor cooking is all the rage, and the trend doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. Outdoor projects with a serious budget have gone so far as to install an entire second kitchen in the backyard.

If this sounds like too much, there are some more minimal and manageable options you could consider. An outdoor bar is a great option for frequent entertainers and hosts. You could simply add in a cooktop or something fun like a wood-fired pizza oven. Otherwise, a really high-quality grill is more than enough.

Interesting Outdoor Lighting

We all need decent lighting outdoors to be able to see what we’re grilling, of course. However, outdoor lighting is often a wasted opportunity that many overlook. Adding in some fun and interesting lighting sources can elevate the space and add to the ambience.

Consider things like lanterns scattered across the patio, stringing hanging globes or delicate fairy lights all over the area. This can improve the overall lighting, but also create a gorgeous glow that improves the mood.

Structural Garden Beds and Planters

Finally, an exciting trend we’re seeing in landscaping at the moment is the use of more structural and separate planters and garden beds. This is an especially good idea for vegetable and herb gardens.

There are loads of different types to choose from and they not only separate your plants in a way that makes sense for their growth, but they also look elegant and interesting in your backyard.

Final Thoughts

Whether only one or many of these ideas speak to you, hopefully, this list has given you some inspiration for your landscaping project. Be sure to discuss with your landscaper about how you might be able to incorporate these ideas into your own backyard, and which of them will naturally flow into your space.
