Garden Design Trends Becoming Popular This Year

If you’re looking to increase the value of your property, one of the best ways to start is by tending your garden. In this article, we’re going to equip you with some ideas on how to update your garden using trends that are currently popular.

Relaxation Spaces 

The trend to create dedicated relaxation spaces within gardens is increasing. Whether it is hanging floating egg chairs from which to enjoy an enchanting novel, or a Japanese-inspired zen-inspired garden complete with a meditation space and water features.

Bee Friendly Gardens 

Bees are an integral cog in the environmental machine. Deforestation, droughts, and human interference negatively affect the world’s bee population. With this in mind, many gardeners are planting bee-friendly shrubs and flowers in their green spaces to attract these important pollinators.

Vertical Gardens 

Vertical gardens are a superb way to cover utilise space that would otherwise not have been used at all. There are many types of vertical gardens available, both from your nursery or from online vendors. If you’re not sure what the best solution is for your property, speak to a landscaper for expert advice.

Subsistence Allotments 

With the Coronavirus pandemic having people locked down for long periods of time, many tried their hands at cultivating vegetable gardens at home, along with growing microgreens in their kitchen windowsills. This not only reduces the cost of fresh produce for your home but also gives you a feeling of accomplishment with every harvest.

Extending the Indoors Outdoors 

Who doesn’t love spending time outdoors, especially during the summer months? Extending your home into your garden is an excellent way to enjoy the warmer weather and even entertain guests if you feel up to it. Depending on your available budget, you may want to have an architect design the addition to your home, or you could opt to install custom made outbuildings on your property such as summer houses or log cabins without having to go to the expense of drawing up building plans.

Home Spa 

With an outdoor bathroom project, it goes without saying that privacy should be at the top of your list. The relaxing benefits of an aromatic bath are plentiful, so installing a bathtub in the garden is a wonderful idea. You could even use fragrant flowers from your garden in the water to enhance your home spa experience.

Trash to Treasure 

Giving old unused items a new lease on life is something everyone can do. All it takes is a bit of creative thinking. Painting exterior walls in dark grey shades are becoming more prevalent in design circles. You could upcycle wooden picture frames by painting them black, putting them on a charcoal coloured wall, framing a small vertically potted plant.

Your green space is there for regular pleasure; the ideas on how to transform it into your own special space are endless. Enjoy your next gardening project!
