Hello everyone,

I hope spring has encouraged you all to get out and work your landscapes. I wanted to go over a few design trends that I think you might find helpful. Now there are a tons of amazing ways to spruce up your landscape but I just wanted to hit on a few that I cant get enough of.

Concrete stains. If you have a boring wall or patio that you have grown tired of looking at, consider adding some color to recharge and make it something to show off not try to hide away.

Wood batten screens. I love the clean look of batten screens. They have a sense of repetition and order that I have always been drawn towards. They dont have to be wood, if the budget allows think about using metal.

Simplicity. Now this one can come in many forms from a simple restrained plant list to utilizing just one color or form all the way down to carefully considered minimalism. This works extremely well with more contemporary architecture and a view to die for.

Water features, especially reflecting pools and rills.  They both have this level of sophistication that is hard to match.  Not only do they add the all powerful water element to a landscape they help to break up large expanses with shear beauty that cant me match any other way.
