Gardening used to have a reputation for being boring and something people do when they retire. These days it is trendy to spend more time outdoors and use your garden as an extra room. So we have our (green) fingers on the pulse and have brought you the big garden trends for 2019 which you don’t want to miss!
As Bruno Mars would say, you need to funk up your garden! There are all sorts of ways you can do this from adding a rendered wall painted bright colours; add funky mirrors to the garden; do unusual stepping stones made from tyres and artificial turf. Let your imagination go wild and add things which are personal and mean something to you. You will love your garden all the more and will want to spend more time out there.
Create a climate change garden by thinking of its sustainability and its impact on the climate. There are lots of small changes you can make such as:
The Pantone colour of the year for 2019 is PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral. We LOVE this colour and it’s the perfect way to keep your garden on trend. Plants such as phormium, heuchera, kniphofia, iris, dahlia and peonia are just a few that come in gorgeous coral shades to add some warmth to your flower beds.
You will want to spend more time outdoors if you make it as comfortable as being indoors. There are lots to try such as:
It’s time to be bold in the garden and push the boundaries a bit. Introduce bold colours into your garden – this could be as simple as painting your shed a bright colour or adding in some oversized planters. Bold planting is on trend, either go for strong colours or go for large jungle style planting such as phormium, bamboo, fatsia japonica and dicksonia antarctica, all of which look exotic but will survive well in your garden.
