Gardening is a great way for people to relax. It’s a therapeutic hobby that can be as cheap or extravagant as you want it to be.

If you recently moved to the great state of Florida or you’re looking to find some unique ideas to next level your lawn, we’ve got a great post for you today.

Florida landscape design is what we’re about so keep reading to find out more about what you can do to jazz up your residence for the rest of 2017 and beyond.

1. Go Green, Then Go Greener

Green seems to be the color of the year. We’re seeing less color and more all-green plants, bushes, and shrubs.

And why not? The back to basics approach rarely goes out of style and minimalism seems to be sticking around.

While a splash of color here and there looks nice, focus on making your landscape as green as possible.

2. Keep it Natural

We mean to keep it natural all over. Grow plants that are indigenous to Florida landscape design. Incorporate rocks and stones that can be found nearby or from other parts of the state.

There is nothing more beautiful than a stone walkway meandering through your garden.

Let the neighbors have the bricks and mortar. For maximum effect, you can create a path that’s mostly dirt with occasional pieces of well placed, natural materials, so that it looks like the path or walkway has always been there.

The well-manicured look is out. Over-growth and natural growth are what’s hot. Let your plants do their thing and take pride in how you were able to help make it happen.

3. Now We’re Cookin’

Outdoor kitchens, especially outdoor smart kitchens, are all the rage. Make this a part of your Florida landscape design so you can grill, roast, and smoke all year long while surrounded by beautiful, natural plants.

Your furniture can be techy, like your smart kitchen, or you can stay with the minimalist, green on green design with natural countertops like granite and stone.

As for seating, go with comfort above all else.

The stone table may be beautiful but during the winter you’ll need some cushions if you want your guests to stay seated.

4. Mix It Up With Your Florida Landscape Design

You don’t need to switch from one style to the next. Not completely.

Incorporate this year’s trends with how you did things in year’s past. This is your home and your garden, you get to make the rules.

What matters the most is how you combine them. If you can take classic ideas and blend them well with modern trends, you’ll be the talk of the neighborhood.

5. Make It Forever

Lawn games like horseshoes and cornhole are great fun for the whole family.

What we’re seeing right now are people turning sections of their lawn into permanent spaces for these activities.

Trends come and go. Unlike the house itself, you can mold your garden and lawn to suit them as you see fit.
