The popularity of gardening has soared in recent years in the wake of the epidemic, as we have all more or less turned to our own spaces: not just to relax, but also to stay healthy. If you’re planning an outdoor renovation in 2022, or simply want to spruce up your garden or patio with a few subtle touches, here are some trends to follow!
The environmentally conscious approach and the growing popularity of organic gardening are encouraging many people to grow their own essential vegetables and herbs at home. You don’t even need a huge garden - especially for spices - just plant a few easy-to-grow treats on your balcony and you’ll soon see the fruits of your labor on your plate.
Instead of strictly trimmed shrubs and hedges, organic shapes are popular in this year’s ornamental plants: if you want a trendy "hairstyle" for your tujas, simply trim them into a round or cloud shape!
A big hit at international home decor shows, the garden pond gives a really cozy feel to the garden and the proximity of water helps you relax even on the most stressful days. Don’t worry, you don’t have to dig up half the garden - you can even create a small pond yourself, and decorate it with stones and plants to your taste.
Choose indigenous plants that require less care at home, as they are familiar with the local climate and are also favored by natural wildlife. So don’t be surprised to see lots of bees, butterflies and birds in your garden!
Our gardens and terraces are becoming increasingly popular venues for family and friend gatherings. Whether it’s a pergola, a barbecue, a comfortable seating area or a beautiful paving slab, relaxing and entertaining outdoors is always a refreshing experience. Build a fire pit or get a showy set of patio furniture and you’re ready to enjoy your outdoor entertainment center!
A child- and teen-friendly garden is a great way to get the whole family involved in a bit of gardening - not only can you enjoy the fresh air together, but you can also reduce screen time. For the older ones, creating a private garden nook where they can get away on their own or with friends can be appealing, and for the younger ones, design a fairy garden where they can let their imaginations run wild.
If you have little time to tend your garden, planting wildflowers and simply letting them grow can be the way to go. Colorful wildflowers add a bohemian flair to your yard, plus bees love the nectar of wildflowers, so you’re doing your bit for the environment.
Whether it’s a larger grill, a built-in stove or BBQ eggs, an outdoor cooking island is worth investing in. There’s nothing more liberating than dining al fresco on a warm summer evening!
