Garden Trends

Edible gardens, drought tolerant plants and container plantings are here to stay but what are the latest gardening trends? People will want more colour from structures such as fences and sheds; gone are the traditional colours of white and brown and the trend in Europe is dark green and dark blue. Spring and summer garden colours will always be the main area of consumer interest but now autumnal rusty colours are becoming more appreciated. Indoor vegetable growing is also on trend. In general, garden design is moving towards a more ecological, sustainable approach. Equally, with hard landscaping, designers want a more sustainable, locally sourced material and people are becoming more emotionally attached to their gardens and the landscape.
