I’ve been collecting ideas on Houzz and saving them to my Idea Book. I’ve also been using Houzz to research local landscape designers/contractors/architects. It’s interesting to me to see who has an online local presence in this realm. I’m sure there are some fabulous landscape creatives out there who do not have websites and profiles on sites like Houzz, but this is how I prefer to search. And since landscape design is such a visual medium, it seems strange to me why someone wouldn’t be online by now. Most of these sites, including Houzz and Yelp, are free. Let’s not forget Pinterest and Facebook.
Here are a few photos that I saved to my Landscaping Idea Book on Houzz. I’m still in the loosey-goosey brainstorming phase and this is one of my “digital scrapbooks”. Anything that catches my eye goes in the Idea Book. I’m noticing certain trends emerging– shade sail patio covers, cafe lighting, comfy patio furniture, decking and funky/arty/bohemian touches.
