time to think ooutside the box

Welcome to All in the Detail… I am so glad you are here!

… well, maybe not thinking outside the box as much as thinking outside the house.  It is Spring and it is time to start focusing on the Great Outdoors and all that we can do with it to add to our living space!

The American Society of Landscape Architects recently released the results of its 2014 Residential Landscape Architecture Trends Survey.

Landscape architects who specialize in residential design across the country were asked to rate the expected popularity of a variety of residential outdoor design elements for the upcoming year.

No shocker here: The findings showed that people are looking for low-maintenance design suited for entertaining and relaxing.

Here’s a look at some of the specific outdoor living features and design elements that respondents rated as the most in-demand for 2014:
