What are the top garden design trends for 2015?

Just like fashion and interior design, trends come and go in the garden too. Here we round up the top 10 best ideas for garden design in 2015…

I.  Black fences – in recent years, the colours of fences and walls have been bright and sassy but in 2015, garden design is taking a dramatic twist. The addition of black fences instantly adds an amazing back drop against which your plants will stand out

II.  Painted house numbers – ditch the brass plaques and opt for a modern, not quite-clean-liens approach of painting on your house number; take inspiration from the web and create numbers using fancy fonts

III. Micro-greens – growing cress on your windowsill has just taken a whole new twist; incorporate planting micro-greens, from beans to cress in your border to be right on trend

IV. Raised beds – get creative by creating a set of raised beds for planting and vegetable plots but, for a garden design trend for 2015 that is right on the money, stain the wooden raised bed a matching dramatic black as your fences

V.  Bamboo accessories – those bunches of canes that your grandparents invested in all those years ago and swore by for the runner beans are now the accessories for your borders this year

VI.  A mini-meadow – supporting the bee and its ability pollinate everything and anything, the planting of mini-meadows is the must have planting accessory in the garden. Plant it higgledy-piggledy to get a random effect and let it grow

VII. Brown blooms – at one time, gardens were manicured and landscaped to within an inch of their life, but now times have changed; take a walk along the grasses section of your local nursery and take home a few delicate grasses to get the brown blooms for your garden

VIII. Floral confetti – again, paying homage to the ability to allow your garden to thrive naturally is the ability to leave the fallen petals of blossom trees and so on, on the ground to leave a path of pink or white confetti trails

IX.  Ribbon pathways – garden design for 2015 in terms of hard landscaping is a softness to the hard edges of paths and driveways; create a sunken, stepping-stone path in your grass for the perfect finish

X.  Bulbs indoors – give your spring garden a head start by forcing bulbs on in the warmth of your home, and then transporting those pots to the outside; their sweet smell will be so aromatic in the depths of winter in your home

These garden design tips for 2015 are all easy to implement; why not call us to find out more?
