Backyard Trends for 2018

As a new year approaches, we look ahead to some of the backyard and outdoor trends that are expected to be popular in 2018.

Increased greenery.

Lush, green plants throughout your backyard will give you a peaceful space that’s perfect for relaxation and meditation.

Water features.

Water features in and around your pool give you the calming sound of flowing water with the added bonus of blocking outside noise from cars and neighbors.

Smart technology.

In our app-based world, it’s no surprise that smart technology is making its way to the world of outdoor living. From lighting systems that can be controlled from your smartphone to high tech outdoor security camera systems, this trend is only getting started.

Fire features.

Fire can create a relaxing and cozy ambiance in any backyard. Fire pits are one of the most common fire features, but if you’re interested in something smaller with the same effect, Firepots by Fireside are a perfect option.

Do-It-Yourself (DIY) projects.

The internet is full of outdoor ideas and people seem to be trending more toward DIY projects like bench seating, small herb gardens and storage solutions for their backyard spaces.

Colored lighting.

Personalize your pool area with timeless colored lighting options that are perfect for every occasion.

Natural vs. glitz.

While years ago, it was popular to have flashy decor in your backyard, the newer trend is to go with a simpler look of native plants and stone features that complement the natural beauty of your space.

Comfortable seating.

No outdoor living space is complete without cozy seating for you and guests. Comfortable seating options are inviting and help turn your backyard into a true oasis.
