This time of year is gardening time and so, for you landscapers in particular, it’s important to be ahead of the game and get the latest on the gardening trends that your customers are going to be asking for!

Let’s explore the top 3 trends in gardening that your customers will be asking for this summer.

  1. Vegetable patch

Having a vegetable patch can be a wonderful addition to any home. Not only is it a great way to get fresh, organic produce, but it can also be a fantastic way to connect with nature, create a pleasing look to any garden space and save money on food produce.

Growing vegetables is of course a sustainable and environmentally-friendly choice. Customers will reduce their carbon footprint by not relying on supermarket produce that has travelled long distances. Plus, you can control what kind of fertilisers are used on their plants, ensuring that they are consuming chemical-free food.

It of course all starts with the right soil and we have plenty of that, so be sure to order from us in plenty of time here: Screened Soil .

  1. Sustainability

One of the most significant trends this year is sustainable gardening. People are becoming more conscious of their environmental impact and are seeking ways to reduce waste and conserve water.

Many people are opting for native plants, which require less watering and provide a habitat for local wildlife. Things like wildflower areas and real grass lawns are all ways that customers can be more sustainable. Additionally, composting and recycling materials are also popular ways to reduce waste while improving soil health.

Sustainable gardening is not only environmentally friendly but also cost-effective. By reducing water usage and waste, we can save money on utility bills and reduce carbon footprint. Moreover, sustainable gardening practices also promote healthier soil, which leads to better plant growth and more bountiful harvests.

  1. Functional and beautiful

Lastly, there is a growing interest in creating outdoor living spaces that are both functional and beautiful. This includes the use of patio furniture, outdoor kitchens and fire pits to create a cosy and inviting atmosphere. Additionally, incorporating lighting and decorative elements such as water features and sculptures can add a touch of elegance to any garden.

Creating an outdoor living space is a great way to expand living areas and enjoy nature. When designing your clients’ outdoor space, it’s important to consider the layout and how it will be used. Will it be a space for entertaining guests or a private oasis for relaxation? Once you have a clear idea of how your customers want to use the space, you can start selecting the elements that will make it functional and beautiful.
