Jewel Tones, Cozy Vibes Are Part of New Landscape Trends
A newer color palette with jewel tones is taking hold in landscaping, and it’s among the hotter trends for this fall, according to the National Association of Landscape Professionals. Seventy-seven percent of Americans report relaxing in their yards at least once a month, according to a survey from Engine’s Caravan, conducted on behalf of the NALP. Carving out an inviting outdoor space is becoming increasingly important for homeowners.
The NALP recently released a list of its top outdoor fall staples for the coming season, including:
In fall 2019, NALP predicts the following four trends will influence outdoor spaces around the country:
- Pops of Jewel Tones – Classic fall colors like red, yellow and orange will seek competition from crisp and sophisticated jewel tones this season. Sapphire blue, emerald green, amethyst purple, ruby red and citrine yellow all bring warmth to fall landscape design. Experts recommend adding pops of jewel tones to outdoor living spaces with unique container gardens, decorative furnishings and accessories, eye-catching sculptures and seasonal plantings such as pansies, celosia, dianthus and black-eyed Susan.
- Cozy, Comfortable Outdoor Living – After enjoying sweet summertime, fall allows homeowners to transition their landscapes and utilize features that are not always top-of-mind during warmer months. Fire features continue to rise in popularity. From one-touch natural gas or propane ignition to traditional wood-burning fire features, homeowners can heat up chilly fall nights with ease and ambience. This year, pergolas gained popularity and we will see their lifespan continue in the cooler month with the help of retractable canopies and heating systems. Signature features, like fire features and pergolas, complimented by Comfortable seating and attractive and aromatic plantings and jewel tones will bring resort like Comfort to homes across the country.
- Healthy, Lush Lawns – Americans love their lawns. A recent national survey conducted by Engine’s CARAVAN Omnibus on behalf of NALP found 77 percent of Americans report relaxing in their yards at least once a month. Well-maintained lawns support the well-being of neighborhoods and allow communities to connect, play, celebrate and unwind. Fall is one of the most critical seasons for preparing lawns and landscapes for year-round health. By working with a professional on essential fall lawn care needs homeowners will see a plethora of benefits come spring.
