Garden trends 2023
With an ever-growing need for sustainability, better gardening practices are becoming more and more significant and relevant. This will be evident in the upcoming gardening trends. This year function and aesthetic will work together as one, while still being responsible towards the planet. And seasonality and changed will be embraced and not masked. Here are some trends you can look forward to seeing in gardens everywhere this year.
Better gardening practices are becoming more and more significant
Due to climate change, persistent droughts, and extreme weather, water conservation is becoming a very important topic. So, this year you will be seeing many gardeners trying to reduce their water-intensive lawns and replace them with more drought-resistant alternative species of plants. Not only that but we expect to see more low-water edible front yards installed and rewilded gardens with native and climate-adapted species. In general, plants that require less maintenance, water, and fertilizer will be preferred this year wherever the switch is possible.

Rewilding your garden is important, however, you don’t need to give up all of your yard aesthetics to achieve it. Like all things in life, harmony can be achieved through compromise. So, don’t worry. There is a way to give back to nature, without sacrificing the style you want for your outdoor space. All you have to do is think of ways you can incorporate patches of rewilding in your space. Wildlife doesn’t really need a garden to have a specific design aesthetic. What matters to them is to have a food source, shelter, and a habitat. There are many ways to incorporate rewilding. You can get birdfeeders, a pond, shrubs with berries, plant native plants along your path and so on. Make it work for you.

When it comes to garden color palettes this year, we are expecting to see a lot of color. As the movement to go back to Mother Natures roots is becoming stronger, more and more colorful plants will be planted in gardens. Mixes of moody tones like blues, purples, and grays will be mixed in with burst of color in between. There will be a beautiful balance between bold colors and muted ones in simple, yet stunning layouts.

As the whole theme for gardens in 2023 is to become more nature friendly, it’s not surprising that there will be a trend of more bee-friendly plants. People are starting to be more attuned to the environmental benefits of saving bees, and are more inclined to plant flowers that encourage bees to visit and pollinate. You will notice more, and more gardens filled with plants that encourage not just bees but other pollinators as well such as hummingbirds.

It seems there is less and less space for gardens. And with many people living in apartments with no access to a garden, it’s easy to see why this trend is getting more and more popular. Vertical gardening helps to liven up both outdoor and indoor spaces for renters and homeowners alike. If you don’t have a lot of yard space, or no yard space at all, vertical gardens are a great way to adapt and incorporate greenery into a limited space. This type of gardening can also provide privacy to those with an outdoor space or a beautiful backdrop for your home.
