Call it foodscaping, edible landscaping or front yard farming, this type of landscaping is becoming more and more popular and will definitely mark 2017 as one of the hottest gardening trends. In fact, we can freely say that it has become a movement more than a trend. A hybrid between farming and landscaping, foodscaping means using major areas of a lawn on private property in order to grow food. We recommend a less invasive way to implement foodscaping into your garden – incorporate edible varieties into traditional landscapes. For example, replace native bushes with blueberry bushes.
