As we enter the new year, you should consider changing up the look of your landscape. If you want to stay on top of the latest landscaping trends, consider these 3 ideas you can incorporate into your property in 2020.
We can help you update your landscaping for 2020 in areas such as Palmetto, Bradenton, Parrish with these new trends so you can stand out in your neighborhood and work toward an environmentally-friendly landscape.
1) Invite frogs into your yard in 2020.
If you notice that your landscape is lacking in natural creatures, it may not be in its healthiest state. Aim to create a frog-friendly space for your yard in 2020. By inviting frogs into your yard, you are promoting the health of the environment. According to the 2020 Garden Trends Report, 1 in 3 of all amphibians are threatened. If your yard space has an inviting space for frogs, you are protecting those in your area from pollution, pesticide use, and other human threats.
Frogs also serve as an effective way to keep pests at bay. Frogs target pests like beetles, slugs, and mosquitoes. If your landscape is susceptible to these kinds of pests, you may benefit from making your environment inviting to frogs.
Consider how we can make your landscape a frog-friendly one:
- Pond installation
- Groundcover installation including native ferns and Asiatic jasmine
- Organic mulch installation to eliminate the use of chemical fertilizers

2) In 2020, plant mushrooms in your landscape.
According to the 2020 Garden Trends Report, mushrooms can prevent hundreds of medical conditions. Some specific benefits of mushrooms include:
- Basic nutrition
- Weight loss
- Improved digestion
- Enhanced immune system
- The ability to make mushroom-based teas and powders
Mushrooms also break down organic matter, enrich your soil, and purify your environment’s air. While mushrooms may not be the first plant that comes to mind for your garden, you should consider installing them on your property. By selecting edible mushrooms, you will be guaranteed they are safe to consume and grow in your landscape. Mushrooms are perfect for your Parrish landscape, as they grow best in humid conditions.
3) Consider investing in house plants for your property in 2020.
For 2020, there is a big push towards houseplants. The benefits of houseplants or an indoor garden include:
- Reduce stress
- Clean indoor air
- Promote creativity
- Brighten up a room
According to Euromonitor, the United States’ obsession with houseplants grew by 10% in 2018. This trend will stay strong in 2020. Houseplants are a great way to connect with nature even if you have a smaller space and minimal time to dedicate to their care.
