Landscaping. The very word conjures thoughts of sweat-drenched drudgery. Not anymore. These days, landscaping has become, yes, trendy, even fun. Planting a few pansies and buying a new lawnmower and yard-maintenance stuff you’ll never use is so yesterday.
One hot new trend includes placing color-filled flowerpots strategically around your home’s exterior, rather than digging up your yard.
Another is “foodscaping.” Add chard or kale and pepper plants to existing flowerbeds. Rosemary and basil add flavor and color, too, and don’t forget tomatoes, a garden crop so popular here that one of Texas’s most revered songwriters penned a song about them.
Here’s yet another craze, experts say: add more life outside your home with plants that attract butterflies and bees. “Pollinator gardens are all the rage right now,” one website says. “Creating a pollinator garden is more than a hot trend—it’s environmentally friendly.”
Texas lantana, purple coneflowers, horsemint and frostweed draw monarch butterflies, which migrate annually through Dallas-Fort Worth in the hundreds of thousands. Their gorgeous and vividly individual wings really do make your garden flutter.
These are just a few bright visuals to add outside Lennar’s new homes throughout DFW, where Everything’s Included®.
