If you’re thinking about giving your backyard a facelift in the not so distant future, then these are the garden trends predicted to be a hit for next year.
It’s no secret that the worldwide events that we’ve all witnessed unfold over the last eighteen months have seen Australians spend more time in their homes than ever before. Suddenly, fresh air and green space shot to the top of the priority list for many of us, and were arguably things that we previously took for granted.
As such, the role of our garden, backyard or outdoor space suddenly took centre stage. Whether you were one of the many that tried their hands at growing a veggie patch, or perhaps renovated your pergola or verandah, the focus has well and truly shifted to the outdoor areas of our homes.
However, if you’re a little late to the party and would like to renovate or reinvigorate this area of your property, the good news is that there’s plenty of garden trends predicted to be popular for next year if you’re in need of some inspiration.
Five Garden Trends To Watch For Next Year
Whether you’re looking to give your outdoor space a facelift for your own benefit or to perhaps invest in your garden for your home’s overall property value for the long term, it’s always worth checking out what’s forecast to be hot – and not – when it comes to garden trends predicted for 2022.
Native Plants Are In – In a nod of respect to our unique landscape, planting native and indigenous scrubs, trees and flowers has seen a surge in popularity. This trend is somewhat of a double act – it creates a thriving, attractive and robust garden, while also conserving biodiversity by encouraging native wildlife such as insects, possums, birds and bees.
Alfresco Dining Spaces – Although outdoor entertainment spaces have long been a popular addition to many Australian backyards and gardens, adding an outdoor kitchen for alfresco dining just makes sense when you consider our favourable climate and general lifestyle. It’s also a great way to combine quality family meals with some outdoor time too.
The Call Of The Wild – Although the concept shocked many attendees at the Chelsea Flower Show, the concept of a ‘wild’ garden originally comes from the untamed look of the English meadows. The idea is to plant a selection of wildflowers, and more or less let them grow untamed. As such, it’s a great option for those who seek a low maintenance garden.
Outdoor Bathrooms – If you’re dreaming of including a tub to your bathroom renovation but find yourself lacking space, why not take that idea outdoors? With summer just around the corner, outdoor bathrooms filled with greenery are certainly having their moment in the spotlight when it comes to current garden trends, and for good reason.
The Humble Veggie Patch – While technically not classed as a new addition to popular garden trends, the timeless vegetable patch is rapidly on the rise. Thanks to ongoing stay at home orders, many Aussies have been trying their hand at growing their own fruits, vegetables and even herbs for the first time as a sustainable approach to food while gaining a new hobby.
Although not technically a feature as such, sustainability is also on the rise as one of the more notable garden trends we’re seeing across the board. Australians are really starting to pay attention to the types of products they’re bringing into their homes and gardens, with the focus shifting to naturally sourced solutions whenever possible – but where do you find them?
Introducing A Safer Way To Spray
Bioweed is an natural, non selective weed killer that works fast on contact with the weed, in order to rapidly desiccate and burn even the most stubborn of plants. It can be used anywhere around the house including garden beds, veggie patches, paths and driveways, and is safe to use around children, animals and even native wildlife. Additionally, Bioweed has no withholding period, which means it’s safe immediately after the area has dried. This ensures Bioweed has the maximum time on the weed surface, proving it’s effectiveness.
The best part? Bioweed is the brainchild of well established agricultural leaders Greenpro, and is backed by over twenty years of research and development. Owned and manufactured in Australia, the primary ingredient of Bioweed is actually sustainably sourced pine oil, and is even approved by NASAA, ACO and APVMA for use around organic farms and food production.
