Convenient elements like lighting and audio technology can enhance the outdoor space.

2. Defined rooms
Whether it’s an outdoor kitchen, office, or living room, homeowners are turning to creating more efficient, defined outdoor spaces. Homeowners want to enjoy the daily outdoor life to relax, connect with nature, and enjoy the health and wellness benefits that the outdoors brings. Having an outdoor office can increase your productivity while decreasing stress while you enjoy the greenery and fresh air. Adding an outdoor kitchen can inspire you to cook meals using herbs and vegetables you’ve grown in your backyard, and an outdoor lounge can help you bring the family together after school is over and over. the working day.
3. Monochrome colors with accents
While lighter and tone-on-tone color palettes remain popular, accent colors and accessories are on the rise. Using cool, monochrome tones with choice accent colors can create a brighter or contrasting outdoor living space. Jetset, Belgard’s Color of the Year 2022, is a true blue which is the perfect pop of color to enhance any color palette. “Jetset is a much needed dose of liveliness and joy,” said Joe Raboine, Director of Residential Landscaping at Belgard. “It represents the excitement of a New Year and the will to do more, to be more and to live more.”
4. Modular design and geometric patterns
Another popular trend is modular geometric standard patterns consisting of clean lines and simple formats. Simple patterns create a modern, clean aesthetic that highlights furniture or other focal points in the space. Large format patterns and pavers also lend themselves to this style, allowing for a more efficient installation.
5. Tangled design
While people mix their outdoor spaces to serve as extensions of their homes, many focus on the tangled design, which combines the surrounding landscape with the landscape design. Fractured edges without a defined break, natural stone transitions and jagged edges mixed with rocks, grass and aggregate create a more natural and organic look that enhances the continuity of the design. To increase the depth of greens, grays, and other neutrals paired with a tangled biophilic design, consider using Jetset as an accent color for your outdoor spaces.
