Outdoor Living is in

Vero Beach, FL, Oct. 17, 2011 – Enjoying the outdoors isn’t just a trend in south Florida, it’s a firmly established way of life. Does your home take full advantage of outdoor living? A recent trend study by the American Society of Landscape Architects highlighted some of the key areas that homeowners were interested in with regard to their outdoor living space. The trend survey found that the most popular living and garden features included lighting, fire pits and low maintenance landscapes.

Overall, 96.2 percent of respondents rated exterior lighting as somewhat or very popular for this year, followed by fire pits/fireplaces (94.2 percent), seating/dining areas (94.1 percent), grills (93.8 percent) and installed seating like benches or seat walls (89.5 percent).
