seven appealing landscape trends for 2017
Landscaping trends have moved from merely functional to intensely design-focused. Property owners are no longer settling for ordinary. The following are seven of the top trends in garden and landscape design Norfolk, NE is favoring this year:

1. Artful Retaining Structures

Whether it’s a retaining wall, designer edging accents, integrated steps, or something truly unique, retaining structures have become more elaborate and customized for 2017. While their function and ability to minimize erosion remains intact, creative use and placement of stones, boulders, and blocks allows for a more natural, integrated enhancement of your property.

2. Natural Stone

Whether in patios, pathways, stairs, landscaping, or retaining wall design, 2017 has shown a renewed interest in natural stone as the landscaping material of choice. Slate, limestone, sandstone, and other natural choices help to ensure an appealing and natural effect in your outdoor designs.

3. More Creative Hardscape Paving

Patios create the foundation for outdoor dining and entertaining. For 2017, watch for hardscapes to become more intricately and creatively designed than ever before. Far beyond just a basic paved area, the addition of attractive paved pathways, water features, and integrated stone seating are just a few of your additional options.

4. Outdoor Kitchens, Fire Pits, and More

The extra space and more complex designs of hardscape patios are facilitating more elaborate layouts in outdoor spaces. There is now plenty of room for an integrated or portable fire pit as well as a full kitchen for those who love outdoor dining and entertaining. Integrated fireplaces and specialty items such as a pizza oven also continue to trend in outdoor living spaces for 2017.

5. Integrated Pool Designs

In-yard pools are nothing new, but current trends have them becoming more integrated into your landscaping than ever before. There’s no longer a need for your pool to have that “tacked on” look; whether above-ground or in-ground, pools and pool areas can be seamlessly integrated with the rest of your landscaping in unique and appealing ways.

6. Hydro-seeding

Hydro-seeding is a rapid, cost effective method of new lawn growth. While precise germination times depend on weather, season, precipitation, geography, and other factors, grass typically begins to grow in less than a week.

7. Specialty Water Features

Instead of (or in addition to) a pool, some homeowners are also adding more designer water features to their yard’s décor. A fountain, a koi pond, a reflection pool, or a waterfall are just a few examples of what’s possible. "Integration” is the buzzword this year, and all of these features can be designed to blend seamlessly with the rest of your outdoor space.
