It’s a new year, which means it’s time for new trends in outdoor living! If you’re looking to upgrade your backyard in 2023 or add onto it, you should be aware of the hottest trends that will make your house the go-to hangout spot. Here are a few outdoor living trends making a big statement in 2023: 

Stone pathways 

Natural stone pathways are attractive and are a great way to break up a solid section of the yard. These pathways give off a sense of tranquility, which is exactly how you want your backyard to feel. If you’re not sure how to transition from your home to your oasis, a stone pathway is a great choice. 

Outdoor living room 

Since we often get stuck indoors for several months out of the year, homeowners want to enjoy the outdoors as much as possible in the warmer months. Creating an outdoor living room, complete with a pergola, lounge seating, a fireplace, and even a television is a great way to enjoy your landscaping and stay outside for hours.  

Plants for privacy 

Fences can ruin the aesthetic of your backyard, and many people have been opting for plants to create some privacy. They’re beautiful and natural, making them fit seamlessly into your backyard design. Greenery and flowers add so much life and color to your landscape! 

Upscale & relaxing 

At the beginning of the pandemic, being stuck in the house, homeowners began wanting their backyard to feel like a vacation spot. Backyards are becoming luxurious getaways, complete with pools, mini golf, hot tubs, outdoor movie theaters, outdoor fireplaces, upgraded grilling areas, pizza ovens, and more. Outdoor Innovations specializes in creating custom, luxurious landscapes, so if you think it, we can do it.
