Newest in Outdoor Design Trends

Yes, it’s true! A Cal Flame BBQ grill or island can help convert your backyard or patio into a Home Resort experience. But did you know the newest outdoor design trends, combined with Cal Flame’s outdoor patio and hearth products, can help you transform the overall look and feel of your entire home?

Thanks to HGTV, we are updated with the latest trends in backyard design!

Here are 5 ways to transform your backyard or patio into the Home Resort you want!

1.) Low-maintenance gardens, drought-tolerant plants and less turfgrass have become the norm in landscape design. Homeowners now assume sustainable design will be a major part of the plan – both for economic and environmental reasons.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

2.) Blended gardens that incorporate edibles and ornamentals do double duty, giving gardeners a bountiful harvest of fruit, vegetables and herbs and an alternative to turfgrass. Edible gardens also create community as urban farmers share their bounty around the neighborhood.

3.) Post-recession: Over-the-top, showy landscapes are out. Now, homeowners prefer to invest in quality and natural materials. Think about creating a patio for your Cal Flame grill or island made of sustainable materials.GPV3100 Outdoor Kitchen

4/) Thanks to new outdoor fabrics, which are made from acrylic fibers and are fade-resistant and waterproof, homeowners can create permanent living spaces outdoors with comfortable fabrics and furniture. You want your backyard to look amazing in the summer when you are having all those BBQ’s outside with your family and friends, the sun beating down and the smell of freshly cooked food surrounding you, you also want them to be comfortable, so getting the right furniture for your outdoor area is going to be at the top of that list. From poly furniture to wicker furniture, whatever style you have, you want it to look good and be sustainable so it can last those summers for a long time. Look around first before you make any decisions, you don’t want to be changing them again after a year because they couldn’t last outside during the cold months.FRP910 Enviroment

5.) One of the ecofriendly elements of the HGTV Green Home 2012 is the barbecue courtyard. The outdoor space replaces the conventional backyard, which would have required major regrading of the site and the construction of retaining walls. Instead of being indoors, think green and be among nature.Cal Flame Outdoor Kitchen
