Trending In 2023


As the weather starts to warm up in North Central Texas, it’s time to start thinking about updating your landscaping for the spring season and we can help. With new trends emerging every year, it can be tough to know where to start and Alterra Landscape Design is here to help. Here are some of the top spring landscaping trends that Alterra Landscape Design is already starting to work on for 2023.


Native Plants

One of the biggest trends this year is incorporating native plants into your landscaping. Native plants are those that are naturally found in your area, and they have many benefits. They are often hardier and require less maintenance than non-native plants, and they can attract local wildlife like bees and butterflies. The team at Alterra Landscape Design is fully equipped to educate you on which native plants would look best in your new design.

Sustainable Landscaping

Sustainability is another big trend this year, and it applies to landscaping too. Consider using drought-resistant plants or installing a rainwater collection system to reduce your water usage. You can also use organic fertilizers and pest control methods to reduce your impact on the environment. There are many options to consider here that can even compliment the design of your outdoor living spaces, which brings us to our next topic!

Outdoor Living Spaces

Since the pandemic, outdoor living spaces have become a necessity and many folks are looking to make their outdoor spaces more comfortable and inviting. This means creating outdoor living spaces that are perfect for personal relaxing as well as entertaining guests. Consider adding a patio or deck, comfortable seating, outdoor lighting, or a unique fire pit to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. The team at Alterra Landscape Design in Texas can even help you design a pergola that will bring your outdoor living space together perfectly.

Natural Materials

Finally, our amazing architectural designers at Alterra are big fans of adding this element to any project. Natural materials like stone, wood, and gravel are becoming more popular in landscaping. These materials can add texture and visual interest to your outdoor spaces, and they can be used in a variety of ways. Consider using natural stone for a walkway, or incorporating an Alterra Landscape Design-customized wooden bench or natural water feature into your outdoor living space.

With these spring landscaping trends in mind, the team at Alterra Landscape Design can help you create a beautiful and sustainable outdoor space that you’ll love spending time in. Happy Spring y’all and don’t forget to reach out to Alterra Landscape Design for all of your North Texas landscape needs!
