Whether your vision is to create a minimalist humble abode to escape to or an open planned party space, we’re going to run you through all of the garden trends of 2019 to ensure you leave a long-lasting impression for all of your summer guests!

1. Outdoor Garden Spaces

One of the biggest ideas for your garden in 2019 has got to be creating an outdoor garden space. Acting as an extension of your home, it’s guaranteed to be your own summer hotspot, and by no means does it have to be costly.

  • First of all you need to scout out where you would like this section to be. Whether you decide to use your patio or back of your garden, with a few strategically placed items you’ll easily be able to create this comfy space.

  • Next you need to decide on your garden colour schemes, as mentioned this in an extension of your home so continue with the same shades, colours and designs so there is a sense of continuity throughout.
  • You should then locate some stylish garden furniture. As mentioned the Great British weather can be unpredictable at the best of times, so all furniture must be waterproof or have covers for it to be protected.
  • It’s down to you to decide what you want to incorporate within this space, but you most definitely need a large comfy sofa(s) to lounge on until the sun goes down.
  • There are many garden centrepieces for your outdoor space to choose from, but a fire pit would make a great addition – when the sun goes down and it starts to feel slightly chilly you will think this was a Godsend.
  • Finally, incorporate some fun features such as a pool table or music speakers to solidify the ultimate summer garden party vibe.

2. Eco-friendly Garden Substitutes

With the misuse of plastic being an ongoing topic of conversation, why not turn to biodegradable plant pots? In style yet eco-friendly – what more could you ask for?

The garden is one of the best places to re-use any household plastic which you would otherwise throw away; plastic water bottles are great for making a statement piece hanging planter. Simply, cut the water bottle into two sections, and fill the top section of the bottle with compost and seeds of your choosing. Once you’ve completed this, hang horizontally by using string wherever you think looks best.

The best part about these eco-friendly substitutes is that once they’re no longer needed you can simply add it straight into the compost disposer.

3. Striking Colour Schemes

One of the biggest garden trends which we are going to embrace in 2019 is colour, and there are a few directions in which you can go with it.

 Give your old, beaten up wooden tables and chairs a new lease of life; all it entails is a lick of paint! The same can be done with benches too, just simply paint them in vibrant or pastel colours (whichever you prefer) – this pushes a fun beachy summer vibe. Whilst you’re at it put up some fairy lights to wrap up the look!

4. Dedicated Garden Zones

What better way to make the most of the space in your garden than creating dedicated zones for all the family to enjoy.

  • Outdoor Play Area – If you have children this is a given; constructing an outside zone for your kids to enjoy will guarantee hours of fun during the summer months. Simply add a swing set, slide or anything family friendly!

  • Find your Zen – Most people will agree that there is a sense of zen when you’re surrounded by nature. If you’re one of these people, find a space in your garden which you can call your own and add a swing or hammock which you can escape to as and when you please. Adding small detailing’s like this have ultimate chilled vibes written all over it.
  • Storage Area – It’s essential that you have the correct tools to keep your garden in top form – especially over the summer months. It’s also essential that you have the storage space to store them once they’ve been used. Garden boxes are one of the upcoming garden trends of 2019 as there are varieties of textures and patterns that will fit the design of your garden.

This concludes our Top Garden Trends of 2019, if you follow even one of these trends you’re sure to make heads turn!
