It is now spring 2019 and we believe this is the right time to introduce you to the recent trends in garden decoration shared by several of the leading designers of the UK Society of Garden Designers. In this product we are going to pay attention to each and every one of the elements that belong to the decoration of gardens including the planting, the materials for the landscape and the design styles that we have the possibility of integrating in our gardens to achieve an aspect modern in 2019.
Recent trends in garden decoration
Garden made from the theme of climate change
Gardening in dynamic weather conditions will become a key inclination for 2019. Designer Sue Townsend claims that she creates much more green gardens to perform in the face of extreme weather conditions in the UK of late. His advice is to plant the correct plants for each garden’s conditions, save water, and let excess water collect and then dissipate through the soil.
His partner Joe Perkins agrees and states that he frequently designs planting schemes that are resistant to drought and found that his service customers today are less likely to pamper plants with new generation irrigation systems. They consider that the use of plants that have the possibility of seeing themselves fend for themselves is much more responsible from the environmental criteria.
Thus, garden owners have the possibility to avoid negligible waste of water and teach their ecological conscience without sacrificing the modern design of their garden.
Garden decoration. Novel trends
House plants and hanging plants
Sculptural and architectural plants will dominate in 2019. Garden designer Joe Perkins states that “the continued increase in recognition of houseplants is translating outside with exotic-style plants with architectural leaves and stems making bold claims on the other hand. inside and out ”.
Joe also says that we use a lot more hanging plants in our gardens today. However, it does not have to do with the usual baskets, but rather with plants with foliage, color and texture that can be used as accessories or as a complement to pots and planters.
The inside is with the outside
Both Darren Hawkes and Barbase Samitier believe that the colorful focus of the interiors will shift to the garden in 2019. Darren Hawkes predicts the arrival of bold printing, competing colors and the incorporation of huge leafy plants in our gardens. He thinks we should «bring kitsch to the garden» by putting bedding plants in brightly colored pots or letting colorful dahlia pompoms take center stage.
On the other hand, garden designers hope that industrial and reclaimed materials and encaustic tiles will be used little by little more in urban gardens to complement the recent trends present in the interior.

Corners for young people
Karen Rogers thinks the growing demand for youth assembly centers in the gardens will pick up steam in 2019. Karen designs these gardens with secluded corners or separate seating areas with open fires or fireplaces. She affirms: «these spaces need a capable selection on the part of the neighbors, such as an acceptable lighting and plants that absorb the greater feasible proportion of noise».
Joe Perkins hopes that the inclination of fire pits, outdoor kitchens and other lifestyle add-ons will continue into the new year as we want our gardens to be a place to share experiences with friends and family.
Wild and free
In garden decoration, nature is at the forefront in 2019, says designer Louise Harrison-Holland of Blue Tulip Garden Design, and we will see continued accompaniment for wildlife corridors in the much larger urban landscape. Louise states: «The move towards a somewhat much looser and much wilder style of garden design and decoration is going to help secure this idea.»
Jon Sims of Alladio Sims shares the initiative: «We will see a movement towards much more natural and less manicured gardens, which we create with a combination of strong architectural styles and overflowing naturalistic plantings.»

Hot and vibrant colors
According to Sue Townsend MSGD, much more exciting colors are poised to return to our gardens in 2019. Sue predicts vibrant, warm colors paired with sexy lilacs and blues, while Barbase Samitier hopes to see a move away from the blue and pink color palette. . Colors that have become so familiar in our gardens in recent times. She states: «Don’t be surprised to notice a shift towards orange and even yellow, which has taken a background in various gardens in recent times.»
Designer Jon Sims expects an increase in the use of ceramic in landscaping, which means that it won’t be long before the demand for the interior color ceramic product also increases. He foresees a decrease in the use of replica stone in the garden and an increase in the range of colors and patterns in hard materials.
For a garden that recommends luxury, designers advise to combine red and purple together with gray and gray blues in the foliage of the plants. There is also a singularly present inclination among much younger garden enthusiasts who seek to design their outdoor space as they would an indoor room, using brightly colored accessories or furniture. Experts advise that simplicity and reiteration are the key to success here.

Materials – crazy pavements
Road paving, charred timbers and gabion walls are expected to dominate in 2019. Sue Townsend says: “I never thought I would say this, but the paving and crazy steps are sloping using huge ragged headstones, how much bigger. , better».
Sue also anticipates the continued popularity of ceramic flooring, which she claims resembles real stone, but thanks to its low moisture absorption it has a non-slip quality that is truly useful in shady areas and around swimming pools.
Walls and multiple metals
The garden designer Barbase Samitier confesses to being obfuscated by the log walls and affirms: “They have the possibility of operating as a characteristic wall, a boundary or a display in passing that provide a precise habitat for insects and a wide variety of wildlife. ”.
He also hopes that we will observe much more metal in the Garden since “it is a material so versatile that it lends itself to many apps ”. Barbase is designing metal archways and pergolas for quite a few of their recent projects. She incorporated metal walkways, mirrored stainless steel, and perforated corten steel into her gardens on pergola walls and ceilings.
Both Louise Harrison-Holland and Barbase Samitier are bringing much more gabion-style walls and constructions into their garden design. Louise predicts that stonework will be used in a less structured way in 2019 and by the time it is used vertically it will look much more like a wall of “rubble”, but this image will be softened by the plants planted around it. She states: «I have felt a move away from strong modernism towards a style that still maintains a solid geometry but is tempered with a selection of materials in much softer tones.»
Using charred wood in the garden
Prepare to see a lot more charred wood siding in gardens this year. Jon Sims has been rehearsing with Shou-Sugi-Ban and is also introducing shutter concrete into his projects. He envisions that many more designers will use charred wood in landscaping, as this material provides a number of options when it comes to unusual color and shapes… and durability as well.
Wild meadows and evergreen vegetation
Several designers were testing wildflowers and evergreens in 2018 and this trend continues into 2019 as well. The good news is that it doesn’t require a huge plot to incorporate into your garden, as garden designer Sue Townsend teaches: “I really enjoyed creating small and medium meadows in several of the gardens that I have developed this year. The most heartwarming adventure was growing my first evergreen meadow. It is going to take a few years to grow quite a bit, but my clients of the service really like to see how it is carried out. In a few years, it will give interest from April to the end of November with a partially small care ”.
Louise Harrison-Holland also applauds this inclination in garden decorating and hopes that the plants will evoke a much looser and less trimmed feel and that the gardens will look a bit much wilder in 2019. She says of the meadows “I see designers who seek to recreate this look with a mixture of perennials and herbaceous grasses that have a much more persistent composition, aided by the increasing use of shrubs at the edges of the garden. In this way, the designers will work with a greater number of plant species, which will create a considerably more malleable plantation style.

Yes, a well-developed front yard adds an inviting exterior, but most importantly, it creates a sense of joy every time you return home. Homeowners and designers are now still trying to find creative ways to make an amazing entryway, and we can’t imagine they will be stopping anytime soon.
Here are some ideas to evaluate in your front yard:
Add seasonal containers

Not only will you create something fantastic, but we think that going out and seeing your plants with new eyes is a refreshing activity that works well for the soul. If feasible, we suggest you bring a young child with you to take part in this activity. Little ones are often adept at meditating outside the box and finding beauty in the unexpected!
Integrate food in the gardens of all and each one of the sizes
While growing food is by no means an exclusive inclination, it seems that at this time much more than ever users have a huge interest in understanding where their food comes from and how it is being grown. And the ability to grow your food is not restricted to people with acres of land. Gardeners are learning that they have the ability to grow a staggering proportion of food in limited space.
If you’re trying to figure out how to assess your ability to grow food but don’t think you have enough space, consider:
Add a flowerbed on your front or back porch to get started
Research the decorative edible plants that you can integrate into your garden design today
Hang pots of condiments from the eaves of your home or in front of your kitchen window
Grow herbs on your walls by creating a vertical garden that can be set up indoors or out.
Invest in furniture that will last
There are many free outdoor furniture and unfortunately, several of us have discovered that some of them are … well … inexpensive and therefore do not last much more than a season.
After knowing that you really get what you pay for when it comes to garden furniture, we anticipate a shift towards investing in quality, weather-resistant pieces that will last and serve you for several years. There’s nothing like a traditional iron bench next to a rose garden or a sturdy chaise-longue with sturdy fade canvas that you can count on year after year.
