Creating Those Luxurious Garden Spaces

April is Garden Month, and what an incredible month to focus on your home gardens and luxury landscapes. If you have been thinking about giving your home a facelift on the outside and improving the curb appeal, there are a few trends you’ll want to know about. Luxury homes at the Lake of the Ozarks are known for their exquisite style, beauty, and even magnificence. 2020 is a great year to improve the spaces you have and really make them shine, so here are a few ways you can do that outdoors!

Wildlife Planting

This trend has been picking up every year, and will only increase as the up and coming generations place such a high priority on habitats and biological benefits. Wildlife planting or re-wilding is a way of restoring urban and suburban yards to life-supporting habitats. This means that native and climate-adapted plants are making up a large portion of landscaped spaces, and there are several reasons for this. One of the first reasons it’s so beneficial is because native species support critical pollinators, promote biodiversity, and in arid climates, require very little water. Another reason this is that native plants have learned how to become successful in local biomes, and they tend to be low-maintenance.

If you want to use native plants in your landscaping, be sure to speak with your landscapers and they can help you create a design that makes use of these plants.

Not Just About Looks

Millennials are definitely gardening, but it looks a bit different than generations past. While the amount that is spent per household on gardening has increased, the values behind it have changed. Most garden spaces are much more low-maintenance and can be as simple a small herb garden and a fruit tree or some easy to access raised beds. So many homeowners are wanting to connect with they produce in a hyper-local way, but without having to give up weekends and evenings for tomatoes.

It’s All About the Green

We don’t mean green grass or trees, we’re talking about lowering the carbon footprint and changing how we approach the exterior renovations in a home. Many modern homeowners are really questioning the impact that they are making through their projects, both through design and demolition. This could mean that you repurpose existing materials, like decking, stone, or even plants. You could work around existing elements instead of ripping them out and starting over as well.

Creating Zen

More and more people are wanting to get close to nature, to create a connection, and find wellness through relaxing spaces. Natur Scientific reported in 2019 that spending 120 minutes a week in natures, or just 17 minutes a day can boost your happiness and overall well-being. Many luxury homeowners are taking notes and using their landscape to create a private green space that is designed to invite connectedness with nature.

Open-Air Dining & Backyard Camping

So many homeowners are seeking to create a place in their backyards where they can make memories, escape, and connect with nature. This means that one popular trend is to bring a fire pit into your landscaping, complete with chairs and comfortable accessories. In fact, the term “yardcation” has been coined about what you want to have happening in your backyard! Another trend that has been picking up is moving the dinner table and kitchen outside. Some homeowners want to create an outdoor dining space where they can entertain and enjoy living outdoors. These outdoor kitchen areas can take on any number of shapes, sizes, and purposes - from built-in BBQs to chef-style setups.
