If you answered mostly A’s you are drawn to a bold industrial, rustic style. Your backyard should be furnished with rich woods and cool metals; think of wood benches & side tables, metal fire pits, and unique repurposed lighting such as a wire pendant or lamp. To cut all of the raw material, utilize soft whites in your greenscape elements with baby’s breath and white hydrangeas. For this style, creating a space with natural elements will balance the more intense material of metal and wire. Perks of industrial design is that the metal is meant to look worn, so keeping it “looking new” is something you won’t have to worry about. Wood, when treated and sealed properly, is also very low maintenance. Your friends and family will dig the edgy, yet casual vibe of your backyard!

If you answered C more often than not, you have an appreciation for nature looking undisturbed. Natural stone or slate utilized in unique ways to blend seamlessly with your house and backyard as if it was meant to be there. This vintage bohemian trend is increasingly common, and as avid advocates for local plant species and wildlife we support where this style is going. Creating a quiet, yet beautiful backyard with a more neutral color pallet in plants allows the homeowner to add pops of color and personal style with the furnishings and decor. The backyard then becomes a blank canvas that adapts to your changing tastes, remaining understated and the key to letting your personality shine through. Concrete and stone walkways that involve grass into the design incorporate nature as a part of the landscape instead of working against it. Illuminated with soft lanterns, you’re ready to walk out to the hammock, and do some serious star gazing!
