Bringing the Indoors Out
The longer people remain home, the more they want to spruce up their house and landscape, says the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) in its Landscape and Industry Trends for 2022.
“I think there’s a new realization of how people interact,” Miles Kuperus, Jr., LIC, owner of Farmside Landscape & Design in Sussex, New Jersey, tells the NALP. “They want to be home and minimize their exposure and enjoy the people they have on their property.”
Outdoor kitchens, pavilions, pergolas, outdoor fireplaces and fire pits are all expected to remain popular as homeowners seek a seamless transition from the home to the yard. Some of these outdoor living spaces can be extravagant, with popular features like outdoor televisions, refrigerators and full kitchens.
Landscaping Trend: Pools
Following a growing desire for “staycation” spaces, swimming pools remain in high demand, according to the NALP. Several industry professionals say some pool contractors are so busy they’re booked into 2023. “If anything, the pandemic has excelled large-scale installations,” Nasrallah tells the NALP. “Pools are at the top of that list.”
The Color Purple
Neutral tones are out, and two colors in particular are in. One is purple, Pantone’s 2022 Color of the Year, with a vibrant, lively hue that’s regal and joyful. The other is clover green.
“It’s about renewal, rebirth and stability,” according to the Garden Trends Report. “And there’s no color that gets at that like green. Vibrant green reminds us of life, renewal and nature.”
Purple is easy to introduce into the landscape. Purple cultivars are available for a wide selection of flowers, including petunia, vinca, pansy, verbena, salvia and veronica. Green is even easier — after all, it’s the most common color in the garden. It’s also a natural, less jarring color for outdoor furniture and accessories.
Deliveries are on the rise. A well-marked address stone is essential for deliveries. Does your pizza delivery driver have to call to doublecheck the address? Are your Amazon deliveries often accidentally delivered to the house next door? Design A Stone can be installed anywhere, so you can position a clear, visible address marker at the end of your long driveway or up close next to the porch. Depending on your lot size and layout, this stone can clear up confusion. Options are available with the address number alone, the street name, and a monogram, so you can find the perfect design to match your style.
