Timeless Landscape Design Ideas

Design trends are constantly changing, and what is in today might be gone a year from now. While incorporating trends can be a great way to make sure your exterior spaces feel current, homeowners might find once their trendy project is complete, it already feels out of date. At Creative Environments, we can help guide homeowners towards design styles that are timely but you won’t have to worry will quickly become stale. While many trends come and go, investing in timeless design elements ensures your home will always look up to date. Here are some landscape design ideas that will never go out of style.

Green Elements

Adding green elements can be one of the easiest ways to boost your home’s visual appeal, and one that is always in style. At our Whisper Ranch Westin model, colorful and varied floral and green elements flank a beautiful outdoor entertaining space. The green elements are situated in steel tubs, giving owners a trendy farmhouse aesthetic that still looks elegant and timeless. The brick pizza oven that overlooks the dining table gives a rustic feel, while also being a functional and fun way to spend time with family and friends.

Focal Points and Centerpieces

Including focal points is one of the most important parts of outdoor design, but choices that are too loud or trendy can quickly make a space feel outdated. Water elements can serve as an effective and timeless focal point, as the large circular pool in our Caleda Model shows. For a more unique but still timeless centerpiece, our Sereno Canyon Mayne Model features a large marble wall inlaid with circular green elements and a fire element, creating a dramatic focal point.

Functional Outdoor Spaces

For homes that have a lot of backyard design space, including activity areas like a bocce ball court can provide a lot of value. At our model at The Meadows, a long bocce ball court is lit by overhanging string lights, providing a space that is easy to enjoy any time of day. In our Crossings at Meridian model, an outdoor kitchen and entertaining area has been upgraded to include a large TV, foosball table and dart board to make for the perfect gameday environment, ensuring everyone has a chance to be involved in the watch party.
