Landscape designer Laurie Van Zandt, founder of The Ardent Gardener in Huntsville, Utah, finds her clients with smaller yards are just as happy. “Most want to putter [in the yard] but dont want to be gardeners,” she says. More clients want to sit with a cup of coffee or glass of wine and enjoy their outdoor space than be wedded to the ongoing weeding and maintenance that larger gardens often require. However, gardens shouldnt be done away with completely. Greenery in small or large doses benefits a home owners physical and psychological well-being, and it may also help sell a listing faster and for a better price. In New York, Amber Freda, a landscape designer who founded Amber Freda Garden Design 15 years ago, has seen her business grow steadily. “The amount of finished outdoor gardens rather than raw spaces has increased. They definitely are a selling feature, especially when they have some features such as outlets for electricity, faucets for water, and a gas line for a grill,” she says.
Atlanta-based Pineapple House Interior Design often places doggie doors between interior rooms and screened porches, to take advantage of this common design feature of Southern homes. “That way dogs and cats get to look out all the time to see squirrels, birds, and cars and know whos pulling up but are safe inside,” says Cynthia Pararo, chief operations officer. One design from ICI Homes, a custom homebuilder in Daytona, Fla., offers a “cat hotel” room with climbing walkways built from concrete columns with wood trusses and shingle “roofs.”
