New Green Industry Trends Happening in 2019


New technologies are constantly driving the evolution of the landscape design industry

New Generational Wave?

New homebuyers are not as concerned with lawn aesthetics as previous generations but are
concerned about taking a more organic approach to landscaping. This newer generation of
homebuyers has taken on a technology-centered approach to landscaping practices, such as
using new organic methods of weed control and smart irrigation systems. This offers new
challenges in keeping up with the new consumer expectations and in meeting product and
service expectations.

Keeping up with Technology

Aerial photography is a new method in landscaping that allows for more innovative and
efficient landscaping designs. Additionally, apps that can control systems remotely are
becoming much more popular. These apps can control pool functions, help identify insects and
plants, all at the convenience of your fingertips.

landscape designs.

Secluded Spaces

Privacy is a growing demand for many homeowners, and the request for more of a cozy
outdoor living space has increased in 2019. While landscaping has long been used as a way to
