Top 5 Trends You’ll Be Seeing in Gardens This Year
Gardens are the perfect place to spend time (when the Irish weather allows)
In Ireland, many people take pride in their gardens and are always looking for new ways to make a difference. When the good weather arrives, we like to take advantage of our outdoor spaces and spend quality time in our gardens.
A garden can be a great place for relaxation, meditation, or for inspiration. It can also be the perfect place to grow healthy vegetables or colourful flowers. A garden is an important place for all the family because it provides space for recreation, exercise, and creativity.
Introduce Modern Design to your Garden
The overall design of the garden is important because it changes the way we think about nature and our own environment. Gardens are also a way to get closer to nature in an urban environment where we may not have access to natural spaces like forests or oceans. Even with small spaces, big ideas can make changes to the way we enjoy a garden space.

These next 5 trends are innovative ways that traditional garden spaces are being transformed.
Trend #1: Greening
Greening is a trend that has been around for a while. It is the process of incorporating natural, sustainable and eco-friendly materials in your garden.
The greening trend has many benefits. For example, it can help you save money on your water bill because plants use much less water than grass or other traditional materials.
This trend also helps you create a more enjoyable outdoor space by providing some shade and making it feel more like an oasis in a busy town or housing estate.
Some people even say that this trend can help with mental health because it makes people feel like they are spending time in nature even when they are not actually out there!
Trend #2: Reclaimed Materials in Garden
In the past, we were constrained to using only materials that were available to us. But now, we are able to use reclaimed materials in our gardens to make them more sustainable and environmentally friendly. Reclaimed materials are a great way of making your garden more sustainable and environmentally friendly. They provide a cheaper alternative for landscaping material as well as some reused materials that can be turned into amazing projects. Some examples of reclaimed materials used in gardens are:
– Old concrete, brick, and stone.
– Chips, sawdust, and wood chips.
– Used tires.
– Pallet furniture.
Trend #3: Urban Gardening
Urban gardening is a trend that has been growing in popularity over the last few years. It is a trend that helps to promote sustainability and to provide healthier food for people. Growing food in small city spaces is very fashionable with very interesting results.
Urban gardening is an activity that many people are taking part in. It has been seen as an answer to some of the problems of modern day life, like pollution and lack of healthy food options. This trend has also been seen as a way for people to reconnect with nature and find peace in their busy lives.
Trend #4: Eco-Friendly Landscaping
Eco-friendly landscaping is a trend that is not going away anytime soon. People are more conscious of the environment and how their actions can be harmful to it. This has led to more people wanting to do things in an eco-friendly way as much as possible.
Some of the best ways for people to go eco-friendly with their landscaping are by using organic materials, using recycled materials, and using renewable energy sources where possible. This movement focus on small actions all contributing to a better environment.
Trend #5: Vertical Gardening
Vertical gardening is a trend that has been growing in popularity over the past few years. It is a way of gardening that allows for more plants to be grown in less space and it can be used both indoors and outdoors.
Vertical gardens are an excellent way to save space in your home or office. They can also serve as an easy way to grow fresh herbs or vegetables without taking up much room. They are perfect for balconies, patios, rooftops, and even indoors on window sills or walls. Although we don’t see many in Laois, this trend will be more and more common in the years ahead.
This trend has many benefits such as saving money on groceries, reducing your carbon footprint by not having to buy produce from the local grocery store, and being able to grow food year-round no matter where you live!
