At FloriFence, we love helping customers give their backyards a makeover with new fencing. A fence installation or renovation can change the shape and character of your yard easily, and typically isn’t too expensive for the homeowner on a budget. In addition to fencing, however, we are seeing these five trends pop up in neighborhoods all throughout Florida:
Florida is one of the best states to live in if you love the outdoors. With warm weather year-round and beautiful scenery surrounding us, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t fully utilize your backyard space. Instead of having just one central entertainment space, maximize your backyard with a garden, play area for children, and a firepit or outdoor kitchen so you have endless summer entertainment options.
Environmental activism is growing in 2022, especially in Florida. As more residents want to take a proactive approach to wildlife conservation, we’re seeing more and more gardens being used for the purpose of habitat creation. By adding pollinator-friendly flowers, birdhouses, and water sources for nearby wildlife, you can invite some of the great outdoors to your backyard.
Petscaping or “barkitecture”
We all love our furry friends and want to include them in our plans for the future. That is why pet-friendly landscaping is seeing a boom in 2022, with many retailers offering hardscape and outdoor furniture options for dogs and cats. You can go all out with a pet play area, or simply add a chic pet couch to your outdoor furniture.
Resort-style outdoor furniture
2020 and 2021 kept many people cooped up in their homes, and even now more of us are working from home on a regular basis. Because of this, we’re seeing more and more homes decorated to reflect vacation-style decor. Resort-style outdoor furniture by the pool can make your staycations even more glamorous.
Modern fencing styles
In 2022, vinyl and wood fencing is in, but we’re seeing these options dressed up in completely new styles. Horizontal wood fencing has become increasingly popular, as is powder-coated vinyl as opposed to plain white. By modernizing your fencing, you can complete your entire backyard look.
