Like any form of design, what’s in vogue and fashionable can and will change from year to year as styles drift in and out with seasonal regularity.
Not to be left out in cold, exterior design also follows this blueprint of trends and what was hot last year might not be seen as quite so stylish and in just 12 months later.
To help you get ahead of the curve and prepare your garden for the year ahead, we’ve outlined some of the most likely garden trends for 2020.
Predicted Garden Design Trends for 2020
Depending on who you ask and who’s garden crystal ball you peer into, the answer to what lies ahead in garden design can vary wildly.
Swedish landscape and garden designer, Mia Witham, is confident that outdoor style is leaning towards a Belgian influence in 2020, with simplistic luxury becoming a prevalent theme.
Conversely, award-winning landscape design expert, Jane Brockbank, insists that cold minimalism is a thing of the past and champions pattern and texture instead.
Meanwhile, international consultant-designer for future-orientated garden design, Mark Laurence, foresees a more visual directional shift, as lineal design makes way for curvilinear free-flowing gardens.
Eco-Friendly Garden Trends 2020
While the predicted 2020 garden trends for general appearance can vary wildly (as seen above), one trend that looks to be virtually set in stone is the move towards a greener garden design.
Here are a few of the most notable green garden trends 2020 can expect to see over the next 12 months.
Making the Most
Making environmentally-friendly choices in life has become more and more prevalent over the last decade, as the world becomes increasingly aware of the detrimental impact we are having on the world around us.
Naturally, that focus has found its way into the world of garden design and eco-friendly garden choices are becoming progressively more popular.
Ranging from water butts that collect rainwater to garden composters that repurpose waste materials into nutrient-rich food for the lawn, expect to see more eco-friendly additions popping up in gardens across the land.
Recycling Old Goods
Speaking of making the most of what you’ve got, another related trend that’s likely to continue to grow in the next year is upcycling old items and repurposing them for garden use.
A myriad of items can easily become a garden planter, whether it’s a wheelbarrow, an old set of drawers or even a chandelier. Similarly, giving a kitchen chair a simple lick of paint and a new home in the garden can completely revitalise your furniture.
Meanwhile, even tin cans can quickly become light and versatile plant pots that can be effortlessly arranged in an upright fashion to create a vertical garden.
Grow Your Own
Another eco-friendly garden trend that is picking up steam and doesn’t show any signs of slowing down is the independent option of growing your own fruit and vegetables.
More and more people are dedicating an area of their garden to grow their own food, providing themselves with a source of food that contributes to a healthier environment, while also saving themselves a little money on the shopping bill in the process.
While these particular trends are likely to see a rise in popularity over the next 12 months, outdoor living products – such as our awnings, verandas and sunrooms – will never go out of fashion.
