Be it summer, spring, or the cold months, the COVID-19 pandemic has made gardening THE outdoor trend of 2020. Because of this, new gardening styles and ideas as gardening trends are turning outdoor spaces into stylish extensions of homes. From small ideas such as cypress mulch borders to large gardening styles such as garden furniture, these are a few of the top garden trends for 2020 happening now.
Vertical gardening is for anyone – whether you rent a small apartment, a small home with a backyard, or own an acre of land. There is a vast source of information on the internet and books on the topic as well. You can create hanging staghorn ferns on a fence, wall vases, wall planters with micro-herbs, fence terra cotta planters, or wrought iron flower pot rings. The options are endless and enjoyable.
Plants that Multi-Task
- Mosquito repellents – If you have a problem with mosquitoes outside your home, you can research different types of mosquito repellent plants. Plant them near the places outside where you spend the most time.
- Cooling effects – Plants can help if you have rooms facing the sun. You can plant expandable trellis on the wall or quick-growing vine such as passionflower. When fully grown, the plants will block the sun from heating the wall.
Secluded Spaces with Garden Furniture
Amongst the garden plants, there could be a secluded space that is the right combination of lush growth and inviting and comfortable space. Secluded corners of a garden or yard can be transformed into a secluded spot ideal for relaxing, reading, quiet conversations, or even dining. Instead of cementing the spot like a raised patio, why not remove the grass or vegetation and place sand or fine cypress mulch as flooring. If you decide using sand, use the cypress mulch as a border around the space. Place comfortable garden furniture in the middle to complete the trendy area.
Note: Cypress mulch is pet-friendly, especially for cats and dogs. Should you want to find other mulch options, consult with a garden and landscape expert (such as Labrador Landscape Supplies) which mulch is pet-friendly. Never use cocoa mulch as this is toxic for cats and dogs.
