Landscaping Trends for 2024

Outdoor Living Areas

Outdoor living is more desirable than ever. Outdoor living rooms can look like sitting or dining areas under a pergola or gazebo, on a screened porch, deck, or patio, or around a fit pit. The trend of bringing the indoors out continues! Hortifuturism was a phase heard in 2023 but it mentions a future (2024) where GenZ and Millennials are leaning towards bright colors, textures, and sustainable plants. They also want quality over quantity.


Colorful Plants

As mentioned, the trend will be towards bright purples, pinks, blues and greens. Some are saying that ‘cyber lime’ is the new black. However, just as it is with styles and fashions, it is all about choosing what makes YOU happiest. In general, bright, multi-colored arrangements are desirable to contrast neutral-colored home exteriors.


Low-Maintenance Plants

While people want colorful plants, they also want low-maintenance ones. If it can tolerate drought and thrive on its own, then it is much more desirable to today’s homeowners. Talking with a professional landscaper will give you the best idea of what plants would work with your soil type, sun exposure, climate, etc.

Wild Landscapes

Eco-friendliness is going strong, especially as we watch the ice caps melt, which leads us to wild and sustainable landscapes. Meadow gardens, which let flowers grow as they please in a mass, have gained popularity over the decades, some in the form of rain gardens. They do very well in Maryland, as much of Maryland is naturally meadowlands. Also, edible gardens are looking to make a strong appearance this year. Plants that are beautiful and double as edible will be popular.

Tailored Landscapes

On the other hand, revamping existing landscapes will also be popular in 2024 as it has been in the past. We see young couples moving into older homes that have huge gardens taken care of by older people with time and money. But the new homeowners have children or pets and less time. They need more room and less to maintain, so lavish gardens are replaced with open spaces, patios, gaming areas, and synthetic lawns. 

Structures are being modernized and colors are changing. People want landscapes but they don’t want to be spending hours maintaining them or paying someone to maintain them. Talk to one of our professionals today to find out how you can minimize and maximize at the same time! Sometimes less is more.
