 Here is a collection of trending ideas we’re seeing for 2016.

"Coloring Structures!"

Peter Bordin from PB's Greenthumb Landscaping in Buffalo, NY says people will want more color out of their structures which can be achieved by painting fences, arbors, and houses. “Rather than white, brown or gray fences, we’ll see fences painted dark green, dark blue, or black. This is a trend coming out of Europe,” he says. “Black houses and fences are huge in Europe. Here in the U.S., people are painting their houses a darker color, like deep blues and greens or navy blue as a foil for the garden. A house painted dark charcoal gray affects what a garden looks like." (Learn more about this trend: Creating a Dramatic Backdrop.)

Coloring structures in the garden, a trend Bordin says hails from Europe, create a vibrant background for setting off plants in the garden.

“Gardens don’t have to be over the top,” says Bordin. “There will be more appreciation for subtle color ranges, or all white, or one color gardens.” Gardens will be appreciated in the details of a stone wall, or interesting edging, or delicate branching patterns in the landscape.

“People get swept away by spring color or summer flower displays,” says Bordin, “but they’re starting to get more in tune to early to mid-fall gardens as well.” Rusty colors of oak leaf hydrangeas in the fall, grasses that flower late season, and the intricate patterns of branching on bare plants and shrubs will be more appreciated, he says. All of these colors will POP against a dark background.

They’re unmistakable.

Landscapes and Hardscapes that have definition and well-designed spaces simply stand out, with a welcoming entrance, easy movement through the property and an orderliness that entices.

"WNY Hardscapes" refers to permanent elements of the landscape — flat paved areas, walkways, paths, retaining walls, edging, fencing, stairs and so on. Each serves a function that makes outdoor space usable and, especially in high-traffic areas, easy to maintain. These features can also define space within a landscape to highlight planted areas while adding color and texture.

This is the FUTURE of Hardscaping in Buffalo,NY!

A professional landscape designer spends their life thinking about the subject; they come to your garden filled with knowledge, creative ideas and imagination to develop a custom design that is uniquely suited to your home, lifestyle and personal preferences.

Landscape design is challenging from an artistic, environmental, architectural, engineering and horticultural viewpoint. Unlike other art forms, a garden is not a static creation, but a dynamic, evolving ecosystem that requires continued inputs and energy over time. Its creation requires careful thought on different levels: botanically (which plants to choose), spatially (where to put what), seasonally (how will it look year-round?) and temporally (what will it look like in ten years?). A landscape designer factors all these things in and then adds an element of style that provides the spirit of the garden.

By spending time with a landscape designer to work through the design details during the planning phase, you will save money and time, as it is less costly to consider the alternatives and change your mind on paper than it is during installation or after completion. Landscape design consists of a process that culminates in the creation of a set of documents that become your blueprint and information source for the project. These documents will assist you in obtaining comparable bids from landscape contractors to fully develop your site either in a single project or in phases over time.

A landscape designer will work with you to create this master plan, selecting the most appropriate materials & plants for your site and budget, developing solutions for specific problems on your property (i.e. privacy, noise, etc.), and finding the best people in the landscape industry to help bring the vision for your garden to reality.

Additional benefits of working with a landscape designer include assistance with quality control/site observation during installation, the opportunity to purchase plants at considerable savings from retail prices, and formation of a relationship with someone who can provide ongoing consultation as the garden changes and matures.
