As you all know, I love my garden. I’m not the only one, the kids love it too. We love adding new features to our garden to make it more special for us and our guests, and for that reason, I’m sharing with you some of my favourite garden trends that will bloom this year.
Create a seamless transition from your indoor space to your outdoor space to make your garden feel like an extension of your home with Designer Shade Solutions’ retractable roof pergolas. Forget about the cold and rainy winter days where you look out at your garden and wish the weather was nice enough for you to make the most out of your outdoor area, with a retractable pergola you can do that and much more!
Country Living shared research conducted by the team at Love The Garden, who’s been keeping an eye on trends that are growing in popularity. They mention that this year, many people will stop pruning, mowing and undertaking meticulous garden maintenance, instead, they will let their garden grow wild, “creating a haven for bees, butterflies and hedgehogs to thrive.”
Bright midsummer nights
According to this article on Real Homes, evening garden parties are becoming more popular and to make these more inviting during dark evenings, brighten up your garden with different garden outdoor lighting. I love having outdoor spotlights lighting my favourite parts of the garden and outdoor fairy lights around my outdoor dining space.
Shades of blue
Add shades of blue in your outdoor area this year by planting blue flowers such as blue fortune and delphiniums, adding water features around your garden or repainting your garden fence and shed in tones of blue. Don’t Cramp My Style shared that the National Association of Landscape Professionals predict that blue shades will influence the design of outdoor spaces.
Spending more time at home has given the opportunity to watch and admire all the animals that visit our garden more often. To give them a helping hand during the cold winter days, it’s important to provide them with basics to survive. As My Pintrosity Life mentions, “whether you have a few teacups with bird food inside or a small pond for animals to drink water, it’s a step further to help wildlife get some of the basics they need for survival.”
