The New Year is here with us, and as soon as the snow starts to fade away, it will be time to step up and ensure that your garden is blossoming once again. Ensuring that your landscaping, including your lawn being mowed and your flower garden blossoming, is intact can go a long way in enhancing the overall curb appeal of your property.
However, since we are no longer in 2018, you should expect some exciting gardening trends. To kick off your year, we have compiled a list of some of the top landscaping trends of 2019 that you need to know.
Healthy Interior Plantscaping
Although plantscaping has been a top trend for several years now, the 2019 version will come with a creative twist to it. The indoor plants that often come in large containers, interior courtyards, and even the green walls will now be focused more on providing a healthier benefit with the much-touted air-purifying shrubs and plants. With plants such as Chinese Evergreen finding their way into your interior spaces, you can now enjoy the added advantage of indoor air purification in your home.
Restoring Habitat at Home
Most homeowners are aware of the fact that butterflies and bees are in decline. The sad news is that the habitat loss is also affecting frogs, bird, and even turtles. However, the good news is that this trend is set to change in 2019 since most homeowners are redesigning their gardens and adjusting their plant selections to support the local wildlife better. There will be limited use of insecticides and increased growth of berry-bearing and seed-producing plants.
Whether it’s a bubbler, fountain, waterfall, or pond, water features will continue to make a big splash in landscaping trends in 2019. A waterfall or a fountain can be a focal point in your home garden while a bubbler or pond can create the much-needed peaceful and attractive oasis in your backyard. Fortunately, there are lots of options for water features depending on your unique design goals, available outdoor space, and budget.
This is another top gardening trend that will rock in 2019. When planning your gardening activities, instead of looking at individual shrub, tree, or plant, you look at the plants as a network or social gathering. You need to understand how the plants work and communicate to make up a diverse community. Both private and public gardens have already embraced this type of garden planning. A social landscape fills all the open spaces with greenery which start out small and fill in fast as they grow.
Various garden patterns and geometric lines will also be replaced by a more asymmetrical design approach in 2019. Yards and gardens will look more unstructured with beautiful edges that curve and appear more natural. While these designs may seem random, a lot of careful planning and measuring will still be required.
