Summer is the perfect time of year for Americans to relax on their brick patios and pool decks and enjoy the beautiful weather. However, if you haven’t given your outdoor space a new look in a long time, it might be time to consider giving your patio or deck a much-needed face lift.
This is especially true when you consider the fact that 60% of grillers now report using their grills throughout the whole year — and not just on major grilling holidays like Memorial Day and July 4!
Lacking inspiration for your brick patio designs? Fear not — we’ve compiled a list of the three biggest trends taking the outdoor landscaping and design world by storm in 2015:
Make your garden go vertical
One of the top outdoor patio trends that’s making waves in 2015 is the vertical garden. By hanging pots from trellises, you can plant a number of low-maintenance flowers and succulent plants to create a thriving, living vertical wall. If you have limited patio space — for example, if you have an apartment or condo — this is a great option for a patio design.
Light your space with hurricane candles
Say goodbye to your tiki torches. This year, homeowners are using hurricane candles to keep their decks and patios illuminated when the summer sun goes down. They’re not just great for creating a beautiful ambiance — they’re very affordable, too!
Add a pop of color to your accents
If there’s one thing to take away from 2015’s biggest trends, it’s that neutrals and earth tones are on their way out. To make any patio space one-of-a-kind, a growing number of people are adding bright, vivid accents like throw pillows and patio furniture that catch the eye.
