Green urban landscaping is all the rage…it’s the trend in urban development, but if not implemented correctly, can be extremely high maintenance and costly. So be sure to do your research.
It is possible to have showstopping urban landscaping that is low-maintenance, durable, and sustainable. The success comes in the initial investment you make in the products you use. The trend for 2022 is an extension of everything else we learned from our time in pandemic shutdown: Landscape that is simple and sustainable. We’re smarter now, and we value our resources as much as the beauty they bring. GreenBlue Urban helps our customers meet the trends.
Green green green all around! Well, maybe not green exactly, but LIFE all around! (See next point). Rooftop gardens and life-giving walls are now an essential turf for nature and focus in the urban setting. And why not? Space is a valuable commodity in the city, and this is a prime location for beauty. Of course, the challenge with this design is that these locations contain no soil or water naturally. It is essential that the landscape designer has dependable products to effectively maintain life amid concrete.
Breathtaking color palates! Urban landscapes that stand out are the ones that have creative, exquisite grooming touches. Although fauna has been an urban trend for some time, flora is the detail that will captivate the attention of the customer and create the mood you desire. Mixing tropical plants with brightly-colored seasonal flowers calls for well-designed pots and strategically placed seating among them.
Experience is THE Landscape trend in 2022! Customers not only want to see the foliage, they want to be part of the foliage. This means outdoor meeting spaces need to incorporate the sight, smell, and even the sound of nature. Consider a gentle waterfall or piece of artwork that tricks one into believing that, although there is nothing but concrete within the external square mile, they’ve entered a touch of paradise because of the care-free, natural environment you have cultivated.
