It’s happening. 2017 is winding down and 2018 is sure to be here soon. While many assume the winter weather means no landscaping news, that’s simply not true. At Huston Contracting, we truly believe you can improve your lawn at all times – no matter the season.
As such, we wanted to put together a list of all of us with green thumbs. If you’re looking to head into 2018 with a much improved landscape, then you’re in the right place.
Hot Landscaping Trends in 2018
At Huston Contracting, we know Olathe landscaping like the back of our hand. So here are a few unique trends we’ve seen in the area:
- Adding Technology
From advanced Olathe outdoor kitchens to unique fire features, adding technology to landscaping is a trend that’s growing like crazy. And the craziest part? There’s no end in sight for the growth.
One easy way to add technology to your landscape? Try adding an automated fire pit or fireplace to your outdoor living areas. These unique pieces spark up with the press of a button and look stunning.
- Lights Galore
Christmas lights aren’t the only type of lighting that can brighten up a landscape, especially in the cooler months. No, you can also incorporate a variety of lighting options into your home’s landscape.
One fun way to add lights to your landscape is to illuminate a walking path. Just add lights every 1-3 yards along the path. Use an autotimer to ensure the lights always turn on when it’s dark and you’re all set.
- All Natural Everything
Natural materials that mimic the look of real stone or real wood have become all the rage. Why? Because these materials look amazing without any of the added hassle of taking care of the wood or stone.
As these materials are less susceptible to degrading or looking worn down, many homeowners have found the materials last significantly longer than their “real” counterparts.
- Stained Concrete Patios
Many homeowners have been investing in stained concrete patios for their outdoor living spaces. The unique colorways and long-lasting design that concrete offers ensures an outdoor kitchen or living room looks ideal for years.
- Drainage Solutions
Many homeowners have suffered from flooding or water pooling on their properties. As such, drainage solutions have become popular.
While each home is different, the experts at Huston Contracting have found simple solutions tend to offer huge benefits for many homeowners. Drains, re-routing, and irrigation systems have all proven beneficial.
