Outdoor Living Trends 2019

Outdoor Living Trends 2019 – With 2019 halfway done, some outdoor living trends are emerging that aim to increase the enjoyment of your pool and patio area with some of the hottest outdoor living trends this year, from xeriscaping to outdoor rooms.

1. Xeriscaping. With water conservation on the brain, the concept of xeriscaping is to include fewer grassy areas (that don’t need watering), strategic plant placement (using shade to cut down on the need for watering) and the use of native plants like alpine violet and black-eyed Susan rather than non-natives. You can also achieve xeriscaping through the use of grading and soil contouring to bring all available moisture to where you need it most, such as a rain garden.

It’s meant to be an enchanted green scene where live tiny magical creatures such as Fairies, but also gnomes, dwarfs, elves etc. supposed to bring good luck to your home.
They usually include several components like fantastical figurines, but also miniature benches, houses, pathways, bridges and rivers that create this unique small universe and give it a charming soul.

Enjoy Your Deck In The Winter – The main thing to keep in mind through the autumn and winter months is that the weather can be quite harsh. Therefore spring and summer furniture will need to be replaced with something more hard-wearing. Wicker and light plastic chairs for example will be no use in windy, harsh weather. You should ideally purchase weatherproof furniture that won’t blow away.
