The New Year is finally here and it’s cold as can be! You walk outside and the cold air hits you like a ton of bricks. You shiver and shake as you start the car and wait for it to warm up. While those five minutes in the morning might be miserable, that’s all day, every day for your Olathe landscaping.
Luckily, the cold won’t last forever. Within a few months, the winter weather will be gone and spring will have sprung. The grass will green, again, and soon you’ll be sweating when you step outside.
What’s New in Landscaping For the New Year?
Before the grass gets green, it’s time to prepare your landscaping for the New Year. But, how do you do that? How do you capitalize on landscaping trends in 2018 and create an amazing yard?
Well, that’s where we come in. At Huston Contracting, we work to keep our clients ahead of the landscaping curve. As such, here are a few unique trends we’ve noticed:
- Embrace Small Spaces
While you may have a ton of Olathe landscaping to work with, don’t neglect the small spaces. With a little attention to detail, you can take any yard and turn it into the amazing landscape you’ve always dreamed of.
One easy way to take a small landscape and make it look incredible? Add Japanese garden elements into your landscape. Japanese gardens focus on nature and completely natural spaces while incorporating streams and flowing water elements.
- Stick Together
If you’re creating a stunning garden space throughout your landscape, it’s important to not spread yourself or your plants too thin.
What does this mean? Well, a lot of things. In 2018, one of the trends we noticed is planting same species plants in close proximity to create a “social network” within your garden. While plants can talk, that doesn’t mean they don’t communicate in some fashion.
We’re not trying to get too “new age” on you here. Just stating that it’s often beneficial for species to be plants close together. It’s great for the health of the plants, but it can also make your garden pop.
- Water Features
Each and every year the popularity of water features throughout Olathe landscaping tends to increase. There’s just something soothing about watching water move while sipping a hot cup of coffee on a spring morning.
So, what type of water features are popular these days? Well, we’ve seen a couple trends. Most people are opting for pondless waterfalls or natural creek beds. Both offer a stunning, yet natural addition to landscaping.
