The 2019 Denver Landscaping Trends You Need to Know


April 24, 2019

As you look to revamp your landscaping, take notice of some of the biggest up and coming trends of 2019. Gone are the notions that your patio should only be used for grilling, and welcome to the year of outdoor living. Take a look at some of our biggest Denver landscaping trends to watch this year.

Low Maintenance

Probably the best landscaping trend of 2019 is planting a low maintenance, but stunning, garden. Low maintenance landscaping includes planting perennials, investing in an irrigation system, and removing any plants, trees, or shrubs that cause more problems than they solve. 

Outdoor Living

Investing in functional outdoor living spaces is becoming more and more important, particularly for those looking to increase the value of their home. To make a fantastic outdoor living space, you need to invest in something that is low maintenance, but also perfect for entertaining. Which means it will be extremely important to invest in outdoor speakers, televisions, and an outdoor kitchen if you love to cook. 

Structures

Turn the necessary structures, such as hose storage boxes and sheds into more than just an eyesore. By using salvaged materials and other DIY options, you can create unique structures that truly make a difference in the curb appeal of your home. It’s important not to let the need for functionality overshadow the need for aesthetics. 

First Impression

Keep your first impressions in mind - curb appeal truly adds value to any home and is essential in creating a space that truly keeps you happy and at peace. This might include planting along a walkway, adding lighting, adding seasonal planters, and incorporating plants with complementary colors. Curb appeal is extremely important in raising the value of your own home, but also that of your neighbors. 

Incorporating Food

Incorporating food, whether it be in a plantar or in a garden, might be the most cost effective trend of 2019. By growing your own food you can not only save money, but control what (if any) fertilizers and pesticides are being used near your fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables are easier to grow than you would think - pick some of your favorites (that are suitable for your climate) and get to it! 

Upgrade your furniture

The furniture you use will make or break your outdoor living space, which is why it’s important to pick furniture that will create a functional space and last. While investing in outdoor furniture can be an expensive undertaking, it is also worth the price. You’ll want to purchase furniture that is water resistant, comfortable, and easily stored if needed. Don’t just pick the neutral color of furniture either, colorful furniture that really pops is becoming increasingly popular.
