Summer’s Hottest Outdoor Trends

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 9 June , 2021

Are you ready to get your yard in shape for summer?  There are several additions or renovations you can make that will give you your own private oasis to relax and get away from the hectic world.  Best of all, you don’t have to travel any farther than your own backyard!

Summer’s hottest yard renovation trends include:

  • Adding a patio. One of the most fundamental outdoor spaces is the patio.  Whether you choose brick, stone, or concrete, you can instantly create an outdoor “room” that is limited only by your imagination.  Patios can be configured to lead from your backdoor into the outdoors or can be standalone features surrounding a pool, gazebo, pergola, or special plantings.  Your patio can also conform to the land around you, utilizing steps and multiple levels to separate various zones.  Your imagination is the only limit to how to build your new patio.
  • Adding an outdoor kitchen. One of the best investments you can make in your yard is an outdoor kitchen.  Not only is this a tremendously popular addition that can add value to your home, but it provides you with a number of great features that you and your family can enjoy immediately.  Outdoor kitchens can be designed to feature grills, ovens, wine coolers, and other items that will greatly enhance your outdoor food preparation and eating pleasure.
  • Adding color and contrast to your pool area. If you are tired of a drab concrete deck, why not consider some new hardscape?  There are numerous colorful options to give you the most stunning effects possible.  A professional can help you choose from many different treatments and find the one that is right for you.
  • Adding a fire pit. What could be more welcoming on cool evenings than a beautiful fire pit?  Combined with a water feature, you can create a stunning, showcase-worthy yard that also provides a functional place for family and friends to gather.
  • Adding professional lighting. Lighting can make all the difference in how you use your yard.  With the right lighting, you can extend your outdoor hours well after the sun goes down.  Try whimsical colors or interesting configurations to enhance the look of your yard all through the evening.
  • Adding hardscape features. Hardscape refers to the non-plant parts of your yard.  New walkways, retaining walls, fences, and other features can take your yard from bland and boring to beautiful and functional and will provide you with enjoyment for many years to come.

    I must say that Juniper Landscape Company exceeded my expectations, completing the job in a timely fashion and for a fair price which we negotiated ahead of time, and which did not change even though there were difficulties with the terrain around my home in Stonebridge Estates (Scripps Ranch). Juniper Landscape Company was on-time,... Read More

    I have a side strip of yard which is on the street. The original landscaping was VERY high maintenance and not attractive. I was always out there cleaning up the leaf litter or be fined by the HOA. I hired Juniper Landscape Company. They came out and actually listened to what I wanted. They... Read More

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
