In winter 2014, ASLA polled residential landscape architects about the estimated popularity of various design elements for 2014. This presentation will introduce the most popular design features sought out by homeowners and will identify how landscape architects can incorporate such features into their projects. Landscape features include water and fire elements and outdoor kitchens, as well as environmentally-progressive design elements for lighting, irrigation and small-scale stormwater management techniques.
