Today I want to explore the latest gardening trends for 2022 and see what aspects of gardening and garden design have become most popular.
Here in the UK Spring has finally sprung, and as the days grow longer and the weather grows warmer, we’ll be spending more and more time out in our garden spaces.
If you’re looking for inspiration for how you might upgrade your garden in 2022, you’re in the right place!
Gardening Trends: Return of the Wilds
In recent seasons, there’s been a resurgence in the trend of using wild flower seeds to bring the cultivated-yet-wild look to your garden. The wide array of colours, shapes, and sizes that come with wild flower mixes add a splash of vibrancy to your garden.
Another great benefit of having wild flowers in your garden is that they attract bees, which is a great way to support your local ecosystem. Wild flowers are also relatively low maintenance, which makes them a great option for those who don’t have a massive amount of time to spend maintaining their garden.
Porcelain paving is a fantastic way to upgrade your garden in 2022. Providers like PrimaPorcelain boast a wide range of porcelain tiles; there’s a large array of different sizes and aesthetics available. Whether you’re looking for a dark and modern chic aesthetic, light and airy Greco-Roman inspired paving, or even wood style porcelain paving tiles (without the effort and maintenance of traditional wood decking), you can find what you need with porcelain paving tiles!
One great benefit of having porcelain paving in your garden is that it adds a space for hosting. Since COVID-19 there’s been a rise in the number of people socialising outside, and that trend looks like it’s here to stay. Having out outdoor space gives you a diverse outdoor area that you can use for all manner of events.
Porcelain products are also a great option because of their technical qualities; porcelain tiles are made from a highly refined clay which is then fired at very high temperatures, giving it an incredibly low-porosity (around 0.05%) and durability. Their low porosity also makes them moisture resistant, and by default, also stain resistant and low maintenance.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
As people are becoming more and more aware of the effects of climate change, there’s been a real interest in people experimenting with small changes they can make in their lives to help be more sustainable.
Some people have taken these thoughtful sentiments and applied them to gardening, and the idea seems to be very popular.
It’s always gratifying to know you’re doing your bit to help make the planet greener and healthier, and when it comes to reusing and recycling daily household items in your garden, the only limit is your imagination!
Whether you’re inclined to grow flowers out of old welly boots, or use jam jars as tea light holders for your outdoor dining set, upcycling can also bring a trendy boho-chic aesthetic to your garden.
Gardening Trends: Garden Rooms & Verandas
Making the most of your garden space with a garden room or veranda is a great way extend the use of your garden all year round. Some garden rooms offer weather resistance, giving you a garden space you can use all year round.
There are a wide number of different verandas available, in different designs, dimensions, and colours.
This is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg when it comes to gardening trends in 2022.
All of these trends are versatile; regardless of what kind of aesthetic you’re aiming for, how much time you have to spend on your garden, and what your financial budget is, you can take some aspects of these trends and make them your own!
