Now that gardens are becoming increasingly scarce, the efficient design of a garden is even more important. But how can you combine this with the trends of 2020? Both indoors and outdoors, the focus in 2020 will be even more on sustainability. For the garden this means a lot of greenery and natural materials, a garden in which you can live and which invites you to spend a lot of time outdoors. We see many colourful flowers and green plants. You don’t have to have a large garden to implement the following garden trends in your own garden. Outdoor space is becoming increasingly scarce, so it doesn’t matter what you have but what you do with it.
A garden to live in
A sustainable garden that you will enjoy for years to come is a garden that takes possible changes into account. Maybe you’ll go for family expansion in the coming years and prepare the garden for the children with the help of a garden architect. By providing the garden with soft grass, wood chips and rubber tiles. If you’re at a point in your life where the children leave home, it’s a good idea to create a nice terrace where you can work or relax during the day and have a drink with friends in the evening.
This garden trend has been on the rise for some time, but will continue in 2020. The garden will really become an extension of your home, and you want a place where you can sit outside at any time of year and in all weather conditions. For rain you place a nice canopy, atmospheric garden lighting ensures that you can relax comfortably in the garden even in the dark and a heated terrace makes the cold no longer an obstacle. By placing the right facilities you can always enjoy the garden, whenever you want.
A better environment thanks to your garden
Changes in the climate have been noticeable in recent years. We had the warmest summer and the sunniest autumn ever, which caused the groundwater level to drop considerably. By not completely paving your garden you ensure that rainwater can enter the ground during a heavy shower and you do your bit for a better environment. Set aside part of your garden for beautiful flowering flowers and plants so that bees, butterflies and other insects have a natural spot. The part of your garden that you do pave should have good drainage and soil structure so that you don’t get waterlogged when there is a lot of rain from the sky. A good garden architect can help you make a design for an environmentally friendly garden.
