Landscape Design Trends for 2020

As we got into a brand-new decade it’s time to look at the landscape design trends.  In 2020 you will see an appreciation in mixing materials, contrasting textures, while ensuring functionality and simplicity.


Design your outdoor space that will be your favorite part of the home. Incorporate the elements that are most attractive and useful to you. Create the outdoor space that can be used for cooking, dining and/or relaxing. A solo BBQ isn’t enough anymore. Build and extend your kitchen to your patio, include a smoker and perhaps a pizza oven.

Add a fire pit as part of your landscape design. Extend the enjoyment of your outdoor living space. The warmth and the ambiance of the fire pit makes a natural gathering spot for entertaining and relaxation.

Think of shade. Include an attractive architectural structure that will provide shade during those hot and sunny days. If your space doesn’t allow for a permanent arbor, collapsible umbrellas are a great alternative.

Look to contrast materials this year. Concrete and Wood, Concrete and Steel, Wicker and Aluminum, Copper and Birch. This trend will continue to be important to any outdoor design. Keep clean lines, but create variety.



Green is the color of 2020. Incorporate plants and accessories with greens. It’s refreshing, natural and effortless. The succulent rebirth is here, these low maintenance plants are here to stay and excite. With a wide selection of sizes and hues of succulents and yuccas you can create a completely unique landscape. The ornamental grasses are also wonderful for creating texture and visual beauty of a landscape.
