Posted on December 10, 2018 by Devon Metcalfe

Nearing towards the end of the year is an exciting time to look forward to the year ahead! The gardening world experience many trends in a year, particularly as the seasons change. There are many 2019 garden trends that are poised to have a big impact should they be embraced. Here’s a look at some trends to look forward to:

  1. Meditation Spaces

Mindfulness and wellbeing has been a huge topic over the past few years. The positive effects that a garden can have on people’s mental health is undeniable; hence why meditation spaces are becoming increasingly popular. These separate spaces don’t need to be large or extravagant, just a place to escape after a stressful week.

  1. Smart Lighting

Mood lighting is an excellent way to add another element to any garden. Outdoor fairy lights work well when strung across your BBQ and outdoor seating area to create a chic, bistro feel. Alternatively, solar lights are also an eco-friendly way of creating a cosy atmosphere. What’s more, they also work well for lighting up a path or patio.

  1. Grow Your Own

Growing your own fruit and vegetable is one of the biggest 2019 garden trends set to take off. People are wanting to become more independent, prompting a flurry of those who also want to try sustainable living. It doesn’t even require a huge garden; many fruits and vegetables can be perfectly grown in pots and trays.

  1. Asymmetrical Design

A natural, asymmetric look is an ideal way to create a neat garden that doesn’t look forced. Rigid lines and precisely placed trees can make a garden seem uninviting and regimented. Planting key perennials within the garden in loose, unstructured pattern creates a subtle overall look that can still look tidy with frequent maintenance.

  1. Focal Point Structures

For 2019 garden trends, there’s going to be a lot of rejuvenation – including those old, worn out garden structures. Seeing as most garden structures are necessary, it’s a fantastic idea to give them a bit of a makeover. Whether it’s repainting a garden shed or restoring a forgotten state at the end of the garden, focal points are an amazing way to breathe some life back into a garden.

  1. Low Maintenance Planting

Gardening should be as easy, and low maintenance as possible. Especially when it comes to upkeep all year round. Many 2019 garden trends feature simplified garden ideas that suit a modern working world. Gardeners should be making things as simple as possible by planting perennials, removing unnecessary trees and shrubs and carefully choosing materials that won’t rot or attract mould.
