Extending Your Living Space with Hardscapes
With California’s mandate of a 20% reduction in water use for San Diego residents, more and more homeowners are choosing hardscapes to adorn their yards with. Instead of watering plants, San Diego homeowners can find themselves relaxing in their outdoor kitchen or on their patio. Some of the trendiest hardscape designs include outdoor kitchens and pizza ovens. By adding these hardscapes to your yard, not only will you have a trendy yard, you’ll also be maximizing your living space by extending it to the outdoors.
Showing Some Love for Nature
San Diego residents are increasingly showing love to Mother Nature with this year’s trends. One way they’re doing this is by making their yard a haven for monarch butterflies. Researchers have estimated a massive decline in California’s monarch population – as high as 99%. This staggering decline has encouraged San Diego homeowners to make their yards more monarch-friendly when designing their landscape.
Another way homeowners are showing love for nature is by planting more California native plants. These plants require less water than species from other regions and help reserve water. They also create a more natural-looking landscape, which is another top trend in 2019.
Including Technology in Your Landscape Design
It’s no secret that technology is making its way into every part of our lives. Your yard is no exception. This year, homeowners are embracing technology when designing their landscape. They’re including gadgets that help control landscape lighting and even installing smart irrigation systems. Smart irrigation systems sense the weather, soil conditions, and plant water usage and use this information to irrigate at the right times to avoid under- or overwatering plants.
