Last year taught us a lot of things. What seemed to be a popular lesson was how important and gratifying a good and well taken care of garden and landscape can be. As you spent more time outdoors, looking for spaces that could be both enjoyed and safe, it’s likely you noticed certain areas of your front and backyard you’d like to work on and expand. Below are three 2021 landscaping trends for you to consider.
1. Adding an outdoor living area
As lawns turned into socially distanced dining rooms, many people realized the value a good outdoor living area can bring. Having the privilege to host group gatherings outside can be a treat and a luxury. Adding a deck, pergola, or gazebo allows you to have all of your family and friends over, taking full advantage of the size of your property.
2. Growing food
There is something special about having homegrown fruits and vegetables at your disposal. Northern Virginia’s climate is perfect for growing figs, apples, pears, cherries, peaches, strawberries, grapes, beets, green beans, onions, peppers, tomatoes, potatoes, cabbage, and more. Rather than getting in your car to drive to the grocery store to find food, simply walk outside and pick from your own personal harvest.
3. Monochromatic gardens
Have a favorite color? Pick all of the perfect plants to make each other in this modern garden design. Monochromatic gardens have the simple purpose to please the eye, offering a more artistic view of landscaping.
