Gardening Trends for 2017

Gardening and landscaping are getting more and more popular. Even people with small backyards find ways to decorate them beautifully. A few decades ago, our gardens were only for our flowers and plants, but in the last couple of years, we saw some artistic additions. As with everything, there were trends in gardening that dominated 2016. But what does 2017 have in store for us?

Interior Design Trends to Follow in 2017

Well, probably not much will change, we will certainly see improvements on previous trends and the majority of them will carry on to 2017. If you have trouble deciding on how to rearrange your garden in 2017, we have put together a list of gardening solutions that we will definitely use in the future.

Light it up

Firstly, you should be able to enjoy your garden even at night. Rather than putting up a huge backyard light, you could put small lights in between your bushes and plants. A lot of gardening experts use this solution to light up their gardens and thus create a perfect atmosphere. This trend started a few years ago and it will certainly stay popular in the upcoming year. Additionally, you can use solar powered lights to be more energy efficient and eco-friendly.
You can also make a fire pit if you don’t want to add artificial light to your garden. Fire pits are great to gather around on colder nights and they will create warm and welcoming atmosphere. They will never go out of fashion, especially if you add a few chairs and tables, so you can host a relaxing gathering in your garden.

Hedges instead of fences

Gardens should be all about the natural look and you should avoid any man-made contraptions. That is why we saw a lot of gardens starting to switch to natural fences made from bushes and hedges. Metal fences don’t fit in your garden, they are ugly and take away the natural look. Instead, plant some bushes and hedges to make your garden feel like a real park or forest.
Even though hedges require a bit more maintenance it will all be worth your while once you see the end result. Just don’t forget to water them regularly so they don’t wither and you will need to trim your hedges often so they don’t lose their shape. Also, don’t forget to keep your garden healthy. You will need to protect your hedges, flowers and any other plants that you have in your garden from weeds, insects, and diseases. The best solution for this are boom sprayers. Low drift nozzles will make sure that no chemicals are sprayed on unintended areas because they can damage your plants.

Decorating The Gateway into Your Home

Create your spot in garden

A lot of people have started to create their own sanctuaries in gardens, so they can escape from the city rush. We are not talking about a table and a few chairs, but about a proper secluded spot that will be your place of serenity. Surround yourself with plants and flowers, get some nice furniture and place a small fire pit in the middle. If you want to follow the newest trends, opt for furniture that is made of natural materials that will fit perfectly into this scenery. Wood and bamboo are perfect if you want to achieve this look.

And that is all from us. We hope that you found some interesting design solutions for your garden. As you can see 2017 will be all about preserving that natural look of the backyard and garden. If you haven’t already, replace your metal fence with hedges, replace plastic chairs with wooden ones and you will see how richer and warmer your garden will look like.
