A quick internet search for “patio installation” will tell you that summer and fall are the best times to get started on your patio construction. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t start designing and planning in the spring! At Green Leaves Landscape, we want to help you design your dream yard so that you can enjoy the outdoors in comfort and style. Outdoor gathering spaces have increased in popularity in the last few years. Here are some patio trends that we are excited to see this year.
Easy Herb Gardening
Whether you prefer to cook indoors or outdoors when it gets warm, fresh herbs are great to have on hand. Instead of edging your patio with a simple stone wall, consider turning a segment of it into an herb garden. By adding a few feet of depth to a stone wall, you can install a long planter and have fresh herbs whenever you want them. If herbs aren’t really your thing, flowers are a decorative option.
Bold Color Choices
Patios are often a single neutral color, and while there is beauty in simplicity, color is an attractive choice, too. Match or complement your home with stone in browns, grays, and reds. To add some visual pop to your patio, combine stones of different colors to make custom patterns.
Outdoor Food Prep
Whether you like to flip burgers or fix yourself a drink, you can build that space into your patio design. Outdoor entertaining spaces have always been popular in the spring and summer, but the last few years have made them a necessity. You want to chat with your guests while you cook, so why not bring the kitchen outside? Modern grills have all kinds of features. You can prepare an entire meal without setting foot indoors.
Cozy Fire Pits
While the summer is peak outdoor entertaining season, there’s no reason you can push it into the fall or start earlier in the spring. By including a fire pit in your patio installation, you can have a little outdoor climate control. Build in a warm place to set so that you can stay outside even when it’s a little chilly.
