BLOG | 2024 Landscaping Trends
As we step into 2024, the world of landscaping ready for a vibrant transformation. At Miller Creek Lawn & Landscape, we are excited to bring you a guide to the top landscaping trends predicted for this year. From sustainable practices to bold and dramatic design choices, 2024 promises to be a year of innovation and creativity in outdoor spaces.
Imagine bees and butterflies fluttering around your garden at all hours of the summer as you walk through wildflowers and ornamental grasses to get to your apple tree or blueberry bush. If this the natural and sustainable style you want to add to your life and landscaping here are trends, we are predicting for 2024 to accomplish that:
- Sustainable Landscaping:
In a world increasingly conscious of environmental impact, sustainable landscaping takes center stage. We advocate for eco-friendly practices, including the use of native plants and organic fertilizers. It’s not just about creating beautiful spaces; it’s about doing so responsibly.
- Wildlife-Friendly Gardens:
Connecting with nature goes beyond aesthetics. Designing landscapes to attract and support wildlife is a trend that continues to gain momentum. Pollinator gardens, bird-friendly plantings, and features like bird baths, and insect hotels turn your outdoor spaces into a sanctuary for local fauna.
- Edible Landscapes:
Blurring the lines between ornamental and practical, edible landscapes integrate fruit trees, vegetable gardens, and herbs seamlessly into traditional designs. We believe in creating outdoor spaces that are not only visually appealing but also functional, providing a source of fresh produce right at your doorstep.
- Vertical Gardening:
Maximize limited space with vertical gardens, green walls, and trellises. Going vertical not only adds visual interest but also allows for a diverse range of plants to coexist harmoniously in a compact area.
- Colorful Foliage and Flowers:
Experiment with vibrant and unusual colors in both foliage and flowering plants to create eye-catching and unique landscapes. We encourage our clients to play with nature’s palette to express their individuality.
- Low Maintenance Landscapes:
Busy lifestyles call for low-maintenance solutions. Embrace easy-to-care -for plants like ornamental grasses and evergreen shrubs, ensuring your landscape remains beautiful with minimal effort.
Or do you want your landscaping to compliment the new interior trends of your home? Moody, dark, modern with vintage gems added for complexity. If this is your style, we recommend you add these predicted 2024 landscaping trends this year:
- Minimalist Gardens:
Clean lines, monochromatic color schemes, and geometric layouts define the minimalist garden trend. With a limited plant selection, these landscapes offer a sleek and sophisticated aesthetic.
- Dark Colored Flowers and Plants:
For a touch of drama, incorporated muted, dark shades and moody hues like burgundies and blacks into our landscape. We believe that this bold choice can add a sense of mystery and elegance to any outdoor space.
- Silver-Hued Plants:
Brighten up your landscape with silver-hued plants like lamb’s ear, blue fescue, curry plant, and dusty miller. These plants not only add visual interest but also contribute to a refreshing and modern ambiance.

Enhance your outdoor experience with raised garden beds featuring strategic lighting. Night gardens bring a touch of magic after sunset, creating a captivating and enchanting atmosphere.
