It can be difficult figuring out where to begin when it comes to your landscape.

There’s so many possibilities out there, but what is most popular these days? What suits you and your home best? Let’s look at the top trends in landscaping among Canadians.

Planting a “year round” garden

Many people plant gardens that are enjoyed in the warmer months, but not so much in the colder months. Here’s a secret: Your landscape can look amazing during winter, too! Yes, even Canadian winters. With that being said, plenty of evergreen trees and shrubs are a must. There’s nothing more beautiful than foliage after a snowfall! Even when flowers and other plants are out of season, you can keep your landscape lit up in green and autumn colors. Find out which plants are best at withstanding all weather.

Building a fire pit

Summer nights with family and friends will thank you for this one! There are no better laughs had and stories told than around a campfire. Surround it with some comfortable chairs, add extra lighting, and perhaps even construct a small patio around the fire pit. A wall around the space is also useful for retaining heat. There are many possibilities, both stylish and functional, to add to your campfire area. No matter how you go about it, rest assured it will be everyone’s favorite outdoor spot.

Foodscaping!

Foodscaping is a term that refers to growing fruits and vegetables in your landscape. You don’t have to have a full-fledged vegetable garden! You can grow tomatoes, melons, cucumbers, and peppers easily with a little extra time and care. Fruit trees are also an option, and are worth the years of waiting for it to mature. Apple trees are beautiful in spring and delicious in fall! You can also plant strawberries, raspberries, and other small fruits. As long as you have the time to maintain, growing food is a great way to truly bring your landscape to life.

Creating an outdoor kitchen and dining area

Now that you’ve grown your food outdoors, you can enjoy it outdoors! All jokes aside, an outdoor kitchen and dining area is essential for summer gatherings. More and more people are investing in outdoor kitchens. Grills, ovens, smokers, refrigeration, and countertops are all ways to prepare meals entirely outside. Never put your kitchen in direct sunlight – instead, have it under a roof or pergola that provides shade. Also, make sure you have plenty of time keep the space fresh and clean! Your guests will find themselves at your place for dinner more often!
