When we get passed the holiday season, it’s easy to get excited about the warm months that await. Like most things, landscaping tends to follow trends. In the past landscaping design focused on over-the-top metals, pergolas, and other accessories, but in 2020 homeowners can relax with more laid back and natural elements that incorporate sustainability, simple upkeep, and beauty. Here’s what you can expect in 2020. 

Indoor comforts outdoors

Homeowners who love to live outdoors can get excited about this trend. Think comfy sofas, throw pillows, light and airy blankets, lounge chairs in shady nooks, and even expanded kitchen areas on the patio. This trend is one we think will have staying power as it invites the perfect spot for entertaining and just enjoying the great outdoors. With the right heating elements, such as fire pits, fireplaces, and outdoor propane heaters, homeowners are looking for ways to extend the season as long as possible and enjoy all types of weather. 


It’s no surprise that smart features have made their way into almost every aspect of your home, including cameras and devices to control your home’s heating and lighting, and more. That same technology can also be brought outdoors with features such as retractable screen doors, windows, sound systems, water features, and more all with the touch of a button.

Porcelain tiles 

Porcelain tiles are a sleek, unexpected, and gorgeous way to spruce up a patio. Porcelain not only looks aesthetically pleasing for your landscape design, but it also doesn’t absorb water when it freezes, allowing for expansion and longer life. 


Beautiful lighting along pathways, gardens, sidewalks, structures such as pergolas, patios, steps, and bridges not only offer great curb appeal, but are an inviting way to incorporate your home’s architectural design. Look for chandeliers, unique candles, and other out-of-the-box features in 2020 that really showcase the homeowner’s personality.
