The American Society of Landscape Architects recently surveyed landscape architects who specialize in residential design across the U.S. to predict the most popular trends for outdoor design in 2014. Here’s the breakdown:

94.2% believed gardens and landscaped spaces were somewhat or very popular, 92% believed outdoor living spaces- i.e. outdoor kitchens and entertaining areas- were somewhat or very popular, and, finally, spaces for outdoor recreation were seen as popular by 75.8%.

Across all categories, lighting was thought to be somewhat or very in-demand by 98.3% of respondents. In second place were seating/dining areas, at 97.7%. Fire pits/fireplaces came in third with 95.4% of the votes, and grills took fourth overall with 94.3%.

“Homeowners know that designed landscapes add value to their lives as well as their property values,” said ASLA Executive Vice President and CEO Nancy Somerville, Hon. ASLA. “They’re interested in livable, open spaces that are both stylish and earth friendly.”

Terraces, patios, and decks were also high on people’s lists, voted popular by 97.7% of respondents.

Lucky for you,we’ve got homes that fit the criteria of all of these trends!
