More Landscape Design Trends

More on landscape design trends in 2014? Why not, it’s a topic being given a strong run in all the publications I’ve been reading lately. However this time lets glance at style rather than elemental trends, perhaps the ‘how’ rather than ‘what’ we might see in landscape designing for 2014.


2014 Design Trends

Not sure how confident I am predicting trends for 2014 this early in the year however I was forwarded a link to a blog post by Karan Barrett from the site The Gardening Magazine who clearly has no such qualms so I’m going to borrow some of her thoughts.


Fools rush in

I’ve discovered over the years that learning when to say ‘no’ to design work can save a lot of grief down the track. Last week I met with a homeowner who was exploring a landscape project that was going to need a budget of at least $300K. They were ok with this, which was great however they insisted that construction of their new landscape would have to start in two months. Now I didn’t say no right away, I tried to find out why they’d set this deadline for themselves as well as pointing out the pros and cons of rushing a landscape design/construction but they were adamant. So I said we would not be able to help and wished them luck because trust me, they are going to need it.



Where has all the brave design gone?

Visited the California Design exhibition at GOMA on the weekend. Fantastic exhibition showcasing the period between 1930 – 1965 when Californian designers explored innovative new approaches to graphic, fashion, furniture, architectural and landscape design.  What is striking about the exhibition is just how contemporary some of the designs, especially landscape and architectural, still appear by today’s standards.
