Gardens are an extension of your home and are a great way to reap the benefits of nature. Whether you enjoy spending time in your garden to enjoy the peace, or you like to host the best neighbourhood garden parties, you want to ensure your garden is in top shape.
Trends are all over the place, from minimalism to being filled with wildlife, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic where more people have spent the last few years at home. This time has given people different perspectives on what they want their homes and gardens to look like.
The best way to create the oasis of your dreams is to keep up with the latest trends. These are always filled with beautiful designs. You can use this as inspiration, and combine it with your own needs and designs.
To help you design the best garden, here are the top garden trends you need to know.
Lots of nature
People are after gardens filled with plants and wildlife, so they can completely immerse themselves in nature. The idea of these gardens is to make it feel like the garden has taken control, rather than a garden space that has been designed. This is a great way to create a calming sanctuary, while also benefiting the environment and increasing biodiversity. People are planting more shrubs, letting plants go wild and making an environmentally friendly space. Upcycling
In light of environmental issues and sustainable trends, upcycled garden furniture has become a stylish trend. Not only does it help prevent waste and keep costs low, but it will also be a fun project for you and your family to embark on together. You get to dust off your old furniture or source some from your local community. You can then shape it and paint it in any way that you desire. This is a great way to have fun, be creative and redesign your garden on a budget.
Treating your garden as another room
Many people are designing their gardens in a way that provides comfort, so they can use them as an additional room in their home. This includes creating a lounge area, an outdoor kitchen, a playroom, a gym and even a wellness space. COVID-19 has played a huge role in this, as people have had to adapt their social lives to be outside where there is fresh air to prevent the spread of the virus. As a result, people have enjoyed spending more time outside and want to continue the trend.
Gardens can be hard work. Many people are spending time sorting out their garden spaces, so it is minimal and requires little maintenance. This requires laying turf, keeping the variety of plants down to a minimum, and investing in technology that will do all the work for you. This type of garden is best for you if you want a garden, but get unmotivated when you think of all the work that is typically involved.
A garden is a special place. Consider these top trends when you are next designing your garden.Love Lilla xx
