Homeowners are seeking functional, beautiful landscape designs featuring backyard barbecues and the bohemian garden of their dreams.

The COVID-19 pandemic pushed society into social distancing measures, knocked out indoor gatherings, and brought us all into nature to seek refuge from remote working environments. After society spent practically an entire year indoors, this summer brought forth an emerging trend of homeowners opting to completely overhaul their landscape design. Homeowners are seeking functional, beautiful landscape designs featuring backyard barbecues and the bohemian garden of their dreams. It’s no surprise that statistically, green spaces can increase mental health and wellness. One particular study that appeared within Scientific Reports indicated that spending a bare minimum of 120 minutes a week outdoors can positively impact your mental health. At Honeysuckle Nursery & Design, we can showcase the newest landscape design trends emerging in summer 2021 that you should consider incorporating into your backyard.

Landscape Design Creates the Garden of Your Dreams

This summer, we’re predicting that a lot of homeowners are shifting away from the traditional, unused backyard and front yard landscape. Instead, homeowners are opting to create the garden of their dreams filled with intentional blooms, grasses, and shrubberies. Since a large percentage of the population is still working from home, nice days mean that you can hold meetings in your own backyard surrounded by beautiful landscaping. Honeysuckle Nursery & Design can professionally plant shrubs, trees, flowers, and many more blooms that’ll bring your backyard to life. 

Covered Seated Areas for Lounging and Full Kitchens for Eating

Another emerging landscape design trend that we’ve seen is covered seated areas for lounging areas and full kitchens for dining alfresco. At Honeysuckle Nursery & Garden, our in-house team of landscaping design professionals can design a covered seating area using the outdoor materials of your choice that’ll blend seamlessly with your natural landscape. We can even build out full kitchens with pizza ovens, implement brick ovens, stainless steel appliances, and many more to craft an entire outdoor kitchen perfect for entertaining. 

Outdoor Lighting Design

What’s a professionally landscaped backyard without implementing any outdoor lighting design? Outdoor lighting design can elevate your backyard, particularly if you plan on entertaining at nighttime. Rather than solely using your backyard during daylight hours, we can work with you to light up all of your outdoor areas, pathways, and even walkways.
