2022 Landscape Design Trends

Learn more about 2022 landscape design trends so you can upgrade your backyard!

Have you been thinking about taking your backyard space to a whole new level this year? Although family vacations are back on the agenda, the ‘staycation years’ of 2020 and 2021 have inspired homeowners to invest time and resources on making their outdoor spaces as inviting as possible.

In this blog, the team at Green Collar Landscaping highlights the top 2022 landscape design trends, any of which can add beauty and value to your home this summer.

Water Features

Water features provide a quiet and relaxing oasis for homeowners, which is why they’re so popular in 2022. ‌‌Over the years, we have designed and installed‌ ‌a‌ ‌variety‌ ‌of‌ ‌water‌ ‌features, including:

  • Water gardens
  • Waterfalls
  • Fountains

Whether‌ ‌you‌ ‌want‌ ‌something‌ ‌low-maintenance,‌ ‌like a waterfall, or enjoy cultivating aquatic plants in your water garden, our team can assist. ‌We‌ ‌can‌ ‌create a natural feature that adds a sense of calmness to your space. 


In recent years, edible gardens, also known as foodscapes, have become one of the hottest gardening trends. ‌ This is likely why they are included in 2022 landscape design trends. The‌ ‌best‌ ‌part is that anyone can grow food, and you don’t need to rip up your lawn or have a big yard to do so. You can try projects like the following:

  • Put a mixed row of different lettuces and greens, such as kale and arugula, in a multi-coloured row.
  • Mix herbs with ornamentals in planters or use them as an edging or border‌ ‌throughout‌ ‌your landscape.
  • Use stone walls or obelisks to support tomato vines.

Your foodscape could have a positive impact on your grocery bills this summer!


Why not treat your family to the greatest vacation pastime of all- swimming in a backyard pool?

The Green Collar Landscaping Pool Division offers innovative and holistic design visions for your backyard pool and can integrate it seamlessly with your‌ ‌landscape. Whether you’re looking for a new fiberglass or steel vinyl pool or seeking an upgrade with extra water features like a spa or hot tub, we will work with you to come up with a result that your family will love all summer long.

Bringing the Inside Out

With hardscaping, you can do so many indoor activities under the stars this summer: enjoy a glass of wine in front of a crackling fire, lounge around with friends, and even cook dinner. Once you install an outdoor fireplace, living area, and kitchen, you may never want to go back inside. Talk to us about our hardscaping services, which also include rock gardens, retaining walls, pergolas, patios, and decks.

Warm-Weather Flowers

Ontario summers can get pretty hot, especially when the afternoon sun is high in the sky. If your yard gets a lot of sunlight, you can plant heat-resistant flowers like peonies, purple coneflowers, and echeveria as well as succulents like hens and chicks. When you combine them with a rock garden or gravel bed, your yard will appear bright and inviting even during the dog days of summer.

Which 2022 Landscape Design Trends Do You Want to Try?

With the weather warming up, now is the perfect time to upgrade your yard. A more attractive yard will not only improve your curb appeal, but it’ll also motivate you to spend more time outside this summer, which can lower your blood pressure and reduce stress. If any of these trends appeal to you, reach out to Green Collar at (289) 339-8746 for a no-obligation estimate today.
