A Story by Michele Kreinheder | Updated 09/4/2013 1:26am


How beautiful is the landscaping of your home? Does it flow with the lines of your house and blend well with your neighborhood? Have you noticed others making upgrades over the summer and dreamed a bit about making some improvements yourself? If you have been thinking about a new look for your home and backyard, you'll be interested in hearing about some of the latest methods of landscaping. Especially in areas where drought is a concern, sustainability is a big focus these days. Both native plants which are more drought tolerant and low maintenance and edible plants create useful and sustainable landscaping. Herbs, lettuces and other vegetables also contribute to a feeling of self-sufficiency and can be fun to use when preparing meals, especially if young children reside in or visit your home.

Landscaping Your Home Can Be Sustainable, Fun & Relaxing

As the economy improves, homeowners also seem to be making material choices involving natural wood, fabric and stone materials, further adhering to the sustainability trend. Many homeowners are creating more living space in their homes by finishing and equipping patios and decks as outdoor kitchens and entertainment areas. Of course, you'll continue to see water features and fountains of all sorts in landscape design, created from both luxury and "found" materials, as there's nothing quite like the sound of water cascading softly when creating a personal retreat. What is your favorite trend in landscaping? Have you recently made any additions to the exterior of your home that you suspect have either increased its sales value or have elevated its value to you personally?
