5 LANDSCAPE TRENDS YOU CAN’T IGNORE


W


hat are your customers craving in their land-


scapes this year? The National Association of Landscape Pro- fessionals (NALP) released its official list of the top 2019 land- scape trends. Drawing upon the expertise of the industry’s 1 million landscape, lawn care, irrigation and tree care professionals, NALP annually predicts trends that will influence the design and maintenance of backyards across America in the year ahead.


“Homeowners yearn for beau- tiful outdoor spaces without the hassle of upkeep. With the rise of multifunctional landscape design and automated process- es, consumers can spend more time enjoying their landscapes than ever before,” says Missy Henriksen, vice president of public affairs, NALP. “This year’s trends reflect current lifestyle preferences, as well as innovations happening in the industry that are transforming landscapes across the country.” NALP predicts the following


five trends to influence outdoor spaces in 2019:


LANDSCAPE TREND #1: TWO-IN-ONE LANDSCAPE DESIGN Functional elements are no longer a perk, but rather a necessity in today’s landscapes. Consumers desire stunning outdoor features that have been clev- erly designed to serve a dual tactical purpose. An edible vertical garden on a trellis that acts as a privacy fence, a retaining wall that includes built-in seating for entertaining, and colorful garden beds that divide properties all combine function and style.


LANDSCAPE TREND #2: AUTOMATED MAINTENANCE The latest technology and equipment allow tasks to be more streamlined and environmentally efficient than ever before. Robotic lawn mowers continue to rise in popularity among both homeowners and landscape professionals. Also, programmable irrigation systems and advanced lighting and electrical systems help outdoor spaces become extensions of today’s smart homes. Homeowners relish knowing that these technological advancements give them more time to relax and enjoy their outdoor spaces.
