Top Landscaping Trends For 2018 


2017 is now behind us. With a new year brings new trends and ideas. The landscaping world is no different. This year, we are set to see several new exciting outdoor trends. To keep you in the loop, we’ve created a list of the top three landscaping trends we’re sure to see take off this year.

1) Textured Paving 

The first landscaping trend for 2018 is textured paving. While minimalist, large format, clean line pavers took centre stage in 2017, 2018 will highlight smaller, textural flooring choices. Expect to see different stones being used for flagging and cobbles to break up large areas. Cobblestones will also be used in creative ways to mix linear lines with rounded shapes. 

2) Fire Pits 

Fire pits are becoming increasingly popular with homeowners now viewing them as essential. They are great for the cooler months and can even double as a coffee table to extend their use in summer. The varying price points of fire pits also makes them accessible for a wide range of people. 2018 is expected to be the biggest year for fire pits yet – so get on board now.  

3) Outdoor Rooms 

While outdoor rooms have been popular in the past as a luxurious addition to any home, they are expected to blow up in 2018. These spaces resemble the functionality of indoor spaces while simultaneously playing into our desire to spend more time outside in nature. Outdoor rooms also allow you the flexibility to design the space however you like – from outdoor kitchens to daybeds to outdoor showers and sunken lounges, the creativity and choices are all yours.
