INTENTIONAL SPACES : WHAT’S TRENDING IN YARDS

Three Key Takeaways

Cost is always a factor, so homeowners should prioritize their top outcomes for their yards when deciding on how to use the space.

Sustainability and local-specific options are popular for gardens and plants. Outdoor amenities should be intentionally designed, fitting the needs and goals of the homeowner.

The desire to spend more time outdoors remains a priority for homeowners. The trend of transforming outdoor spaces into distinct “rooms” maximizes square footage with areas to cook, dine, relax, garden and be active.

While the old rule of budgeting suggested 10% of a home’s value for outdoor improvements, that number is on the rise. Steve Chepurny, landscape architect, at Southampton, N.J.-based Beechwood Landscape & Construction notes an increase of 20-25%. Denver-area landscape designer Abby Rupsa of Botanical Living puts the number in her market closer to a 15% average.

Part of the uptick is also due to labor and cost of materials, says landscape designer Michael Glass-man, whose eponymous firm is based in Sacramento, Calif. “Costs have doubled and tripled in re-cent years,” he says. “To cut back, some homeowners do some work themselves or scale back projects. Those who stay put also put in more sustainable features that will last,” Glassman says.

Yards are often versatile spaces that can offer everything from leisure to fun. Sometimes though, it’s hard to know where to start. Seasoned homeowners offer the following tips to help :

Plant according to a local climate, water and soil specifications. Develop a cohesive design plan up front.

Forgo features that require lots of maintenance and will detract from leisure time, unless hiring help is part of the budget.
