The American Society of Landscape Architects, the premier professional organization in the field, recently released the results of its 2014 Residential Landscape Architecture Trends Survey. According to their website, “consumer demand remains strong for attractively designed residential landscapes that are perfect for entertaining and relaxing.The survey also shows continuing popularity for both sustainable and low-maintenance design”. At A.J. Brauer, we recognize how important professional landscape thought is to our business. So let’s take a minute to go through a few parts of the survey and how we can help.
Seating and Dining Areas – Clients want to live in the outside spaces more than just walk through them.
Lighting – Again, part of living in the outside is seeing in the outside.
Recreational Areas – The pool. Of course the pool but also water features of all types.
Working Gardens – Growing fruits and vegetable for family consumption is a keen interest.
Lush Landscaping – The density of arrangement and the complexity of plantings are distinguishing modern landscaping.
Fire Pits – This is no surprise to us as this has been a consistent client desire for a while now.
Outdoor Cooking – Beyond the grills are the glorious almost full outdoor kitchens.
As we complete this post, we would like to thank the American Society of Landscape Architects for the fine work done in the completion of this survey. As always, we appreciate your reading. Our sister company, Materials Marketing, has many showrooms around the US where A.J. Brauer limestone products are available for your perusal. Bye for now!
