2017 Gardening Trends

From Garden Design magazine, this article queried several landscape designers on their thoughts on current trends in gardening and landscaping. Some key takeaways include:

  • using indoor colour blocking techniques in outdoor spaces (and why not, your outdoor space is often an extension of the indoor space)
  • using more locally sourced plants and materials, as the ever-increasing awareness of our impact on the environment causes us to make better choices
  • the traditional lawn is still a staple of the urban property, but other options such as faux grass, and low maintenance / low height plant materials are being installed more often, particularly in smaller spaces
  • defined active spaces, such as a bocce ball court, fireplace seating, or a kids play area create areas where people don’t have to weed or maintain the area
  • micro irrigation is easy to install and uses very little water
