2017 is almost over and although the end of the year can be busy with holidays and family gatherings, it is time to start thinking about the new year and all it will bring. We present out with the old, in with the new (yard, that is).
This past year was exciting for homeowners, with a shifted focus to outdoor spaces and fun new trends that were both beautiful and added value to homes. In backyards, there were more green plants added, natural materials used in walkways, seating and outdoor kitchens, and carefully arranged spaces for more family time. We were excited to help our customers put these trends to action and loved seeing happy results!
2018 is just around the corner, and it seems that in the new year, reinvigorating backyards will go even farther. Garden Design Magazine predicts several trends ahead, and Basnight Land & Lawn experts are ready to help you incorporate these new ideas into your own yard! Here are a few 2018 trends we can help with:
1. Small gardens: Design is everything when planting a garden in a small space, and your garden should look amazing from the start of the year! We’ll work with you to create a design that suits the specific characteristics of your home while also fitting within your budget.
2. Dining spaces: More and more people are finding ways to spend time outdoors, and this means outdoor dining areas. This has always been one of our areas of expertise, and know how to make your outdoor seating areas and kitchens a tranquil place that fits your style.
3. Enclosed, meditative spaces: Creating a more personal space for a calm and meditative environment will take priority in 2018, and our landscapers can help you create beautiful, natural boundaries around your home. Basnight is also a leader in water feature and fountain installation, perfect elements for a relaxing backyard oasis.
4. Extending useable space: Create an extension of your current space by utilizing designs you already have in your home. Use a “focal” piece to transition an unusable space into a place where everyone wants to go!
