What’s trending in garden, landscapes and hardscapes in 2018? Hear it straight from our experts:

“Products mimicking natural materials such as wood-grain and stone are adding to landscaping aesthetics in various shapes and sizes.” –Frank Stewart, Oberfields

“Alternative lighting techniques such as string lights and accent lights continue to soften environments and add privacy, replacing traditional flood light and commercial options.” –Jennifer Egbert, Egbert’s Landscaping & Lawncare

“Projects are moving to a more linear design and colors are trending toward shades of grey and black. The use of larger format pavers with unique finishes and textures continues to draw attention.” –Glenn Wiley, Unilock

“Stonescapes, large boulders and aggregate features continue to drive variety and texture. Using gravel as a mulch alternative will continue to become more popular.” –Elizabeth Bard, Bard Nurseries & Landscaping

“More and more clients are looking to repurpose older materials throughout their design while keeping an up-to-date look that leverages modern amenities.” –Ryan Davis, Midwest Stone Scapes
