2017 Landscaping Trends
Once again, interlocking stone is a very popular choice for patios, driveways, walkways and retaining walls. It’s very versatile, durable and a great long term investment for your home.
With the 2017 season underway, we’re seeing some great new designs and a return to some classic interlock ideas.
Distinctive dark borders – Edging your interlocking walkway or patio with a complementary dark border gives it a clean and finished look. Look for Techo-Bloc’s Blu 60mm in Onyx Black (6”x13”) or for a cobblestone effect – Techo-Bloc’s Villagio in Onyx Black.
Walls, walls, walls – Raised garden beds, seating walls and retaining walls are all popular choices. Smooth faced, chiseled or clean angular lines can each create a different feel for your landscape project. This year, we’re seeing more mixing of colour combinations – beige wall stones mixed with brown or black coping.
Mixed materials. Homeowners are mixing it up! Wood, interlocking stone, and concrete blended together with the natural beauty of gardens.
Rustic Luxe – A newly coined term for the use of reclaimed or reclaimed look materials. A popular choice is Techo-Bloc Borealis stone which looks and feels like wood planks, but has the durability of concrete.
Water Features – Fountains, bubbling rocks and water walls create a sense of peace and serenity.
