Three Landscaping Trends to Consider in 2017

As each year passes we see a rise and fall in many trends worldwide. From hairstyles to clothing, there are a range of styles and looks that people love and need to incorporate into their lives. The same goes for landscaping. We have seen so many trends come and go through our gardens, and although it is only early in the year there are already predictions for some of the biggest trends you will see this year!

  1. The Hygge Concept

The word ‘Hygge’, of Danish origin, is sweeping its way into our gardens. This is a great concept which is changing the way people view their outdoor space, transforming them from mere grassed areas to fully landscaped living with cosy corners and social spaces. It helps people view their outdoor area as an extension of their home, and bring a sense of cosiness into the space. Whether it’s through adding tranquil water features, outdoor eating areas, fire pits or nooks to relax in, people are creating an area that looks and feels incredible.

  1. Save The Bees

Protecting the little critters that help the world flourish is going to be at the forefront of gardening designs in 2017. This would revolve around planting pollinator-friendly flowers in gardens, allowing bees a haven for pollination. As well as this, people will be turning away from harmful pesticides and opting for more friendly options that allow bees to remain harm free in your garden. It is also vital that bees have a steady access to water, and birdbaths are the perfect place to allow bees to recharge in their journey of pollinating the world.

  1. Gardening up high

Gardens are moving upwards! This ‘green roof’ movement is making its way through major cities worldwide. From stadiums to hotels and everything in between, people have been creating outdoor spaces with a view. Although it rose to popularity in commercial spaces, it is now a trend being picked up by homeowners. The best way to start your rooftop garden is slowly, and making sure that it is evaluated by a professional and made safe for users. Alternatively, get an expert to come and install some turf and play your next game of backyard soccer at new heights.
