8 Best Landscaping Ideas for 2019

Landscaping plays a key role in making the most of your property. Show off your home to its best potential and make your outdoor space a usable additional outdoor living space this year. Here are 8 of the best landscaping ideas for 2019 to get you started.


1. Clear Up Your Outdoor Space With a Garden Shed

Start your outdoor transformation by investing in a garden shed. A garden shed will provide you with that extra space that you need to store all of your landscaping tools and equipment to get them out of the way and at the same time easily accessible when you need them. Not only will a garden shed provide you with extra storage space, but it can also improve the aesthetic or your yard and increase the value of your home. Choose a quality-made portable building that blends into your landscape to add to the visual appeal of your yard. If money is tight, Classic Buildings offers an easy-to-qualify for rent-to-own program.


2. Design a Conversation Area Around a Fire Pit

Who doesn’t love to gather around an outdoor fire with friends and family to relax and catch up? The hottest trend in fireplaces is the fire pit and this lovely design from Mariani Landscaping is a wonderful example of how you can bring a little bit of a cottage feeling to your backyard. Place a couple of Muskoka-style chairs on the flagstone and gravel hardscaping and you will have a place to spend many happy evenings. If you are on a budget, there are a wide variety of beautiful portable firepits that you can install on your existing patio or deck.


3. Green Without the Grass

If you want to have greenery in your yard, but you hate to cut grass or you just don’t have the time to do it, you’ll love this innovative landscaping idea from Greenblot Design. You can lay your patio stones, leaving some out in a strategic pattern, where you can plant your choice of lush greenery to fill in those spaces. If you hate weeding too, then make sure to fully fill those spaces with plants so that the weeds have no place to grow.


4. Patterned Paths

We love how Janice Parker Landscape Architects have cleverly woven a path through this yard making an interesting pattern. The patio slabs blend with the grass as they form this rather unique landscaping design. The path leads to an attractive and secluded patio area at the far corner of the yard, perfect for more private get-togethers.


5. Fancy Up Your Fence

If you want to make a statement with the fence and gate that surround your property, consider taking a step away from the traditional wooden privacy fence and step up to a more elegant choice. This solid and stately fence and gate from Gregory Lombardi Design will certainly turn some heads and give your home that wow-factor to increase its curb appeal.


6. Take Advantage of Your Sloping Landscape

A sloping landscape can be a challenge, but why not turn that challenge into an advantage? This gorgeous landscaping idea from Howard Design Studio incorporates a majestic stone staircase leading up to an impressive stone monument. The terracing technique means that you can gain some much needed usable space on your once awkward slope. 


7. How About a Hot Tub?

If you are going to invest in a hot tub, why not incorporate it into your landscape? This awesome patio design from Stroudwater Design Group showcases a built-in hot tub right in the center of this beautiful outdoor living space. After you’ve enjoyed a luscious soak in the tub, you can then dry off and relax next to the impressive stone fireplace.


8. When a Hot Tub Alone Is Not Quite Enough

When a hot tub alone is simply not enough, go that extra mile and put in a full-sized swimming pool with waterfalls that tumble soothingly into your hot tub like this wonderful creation from Dan Gordon Landscape Architects. This amazing landscaping design actually gives you an outdoor spa right in your own backyard with its serene latticed backdrop.
