Starting a new year means new trends are on the rise. We thought it would be fun to showcase ten of the top gardening trends for 2020.
Plants that cater more to the needs of the ecosystem will be big in 2020. If you’re thinking about which ones to grow, opt for bee-friendly varieties which attract bugs and encourage pollination.
You can reduce plastic use in the garden through a variety of approaches, and one of them is the use of biodegradable pots and metal items instead of plastic.
To create less waste whilst putting nutrients back into your soil, you can create a compost heap and include your kitchen scrap with it, instead of throwing it all away.
Creating a wildlife-friendly garden will be a great initiative since the decade to come will be all about helping nature thrive. You can simply let your grass grow that little bit longer and keep a few weeds in the garden to do so.
5. Grow your own
Creating a healthier diet will become of even more importance in 2020, so why not start at home and think about sustainable gardening. You could create a vegetable patch and start growing some of your favorite vegetables, adding them to your healthy meals in the coming year.
6. Dark Colors
Dark colors bring more character to a garden so why not add some depth to your garden to create an instant statement in your outdoor space.
Symmetry will be a huge design aspect in 2020, adding charm and appeal to every garden. You can start by twinning plants on either side of a door or gate.
Since environmental initiatives are a must for the upcoming decade, you can start upcycling in your garden. Gather old wellies, sinks and wheelbarrows and turn them into unique garden planters.
You can add a classy and minimalist water feature in your garden next year to add the relaxing, refreshing and restorative sound of water into your outdoor space.
10. Native Plants
To achieve better gardening results for the next year, look for plants that grow naturally in your area, depending on the soil type and environmental factors.
