Home Landscaping Design Ideas for 2023

Exterior landscaping of a home

Landscaping is the key to enhancing your home’s curb appeal and creating an inviting outdoor space. However, it can be overwhelming to tackle without the right guidance. At Ridgeline, we’re here to offer valuable tips and ideas that will help you approach your home’s landscaping with confidence. 

Landscaping To Match Your Custom Home’s Style

Beautiful landscaping can be the perfect addition to your outdoor space, but first, it’s important to determine what pairs well with your custom home design. Choose landscaping styles that complement your home’s architecture to create a harmonious and visually appealing environment. 

Modern Farmhouse

Enhance your modern farmhouse home with landscaping that balances rustic and modern elements. Add flowering plants and use materials like weathered wood or galvanized metal to achieve a natural look. Complete the farmhouse look with a porch swing or rocking chair. 


Create a contemporary outdoor space with landscaping that is clean, simple, and emphasizes symmetry. Use geometric shapes and straight lines to create a seamless connection between your indoor and outdoor spaces. Add elements like gravel pathways or concrete pavers to enhance the modern aesthetic.


Landscaping for your traditional home should reflect a sense of elegance and formality. Consider symmetrical outdoor plants like hedges or flower beds to create a vibrant space and maintain a sense of balance. Classic features like paved walkways, stone walls, and garden benches can further enhance the traditional charm of your outdoor space. 

Universal Home Landscaping Ideas

Regardless of your home style, these 2023 landscaping design trends are sure to elevate your outdoor space. From outdoor living areas to high-tech water features, complete your dream custom home with these landscaping tips in mind.

Sustainable Landscaping

To maintain a sustainable outdoor space, incorporate native plants into your garden that require little water and maintenance. Consider installing a composting system to recycle kitchen waste and nourish your garden naturally. 

Outdoor Living Spaces

Create a cozy outdoor living space with comfortable furniture, cushions, and throws. Install an outdoor kitchen or barbecue area for dining and entertaining the whole family can enjoy. Consider adding a fire pit or outdoor fireplace to extend your outdoor living season into cooler months. 

Water Features

Water features bring a sense of tranquility and add a visual focal point to any landscape. Whether it be a small pond, cascading waterfall, or decorative fountain, the sound of flowing water can create a calming atmosphere and attract birds and other wildlife to your garden. 

Smart Landscaping

Embrace technology and install irrigation systems with moisture sensors, weather-based controllers, and smartphone apps. These systems help conserve water by providing the right amount of irrigation based on real-time weather data. You can also install smart lighting systems that can be controlled remotely or set on timers to create stunning visual effects.
