As 2019 is beginning and the weather is still cold, it is a great time to start thinking of your plans for this summer’s garden. Each year bring fun, new trends in gardening and 2019 is no exception. Below are four garden trends that we love for this year. Incorporate one or all four and you’ll be sure to be the best-looking yard on the block!
Everything is getting smarter these days and gardening is keeping up! There are currently mowing robots on the market and a solar-powered weeding robot is coming. Expect to see more in the robotic gardening market.
You can also use your smartphone to become a better gardener. There are tons of apps out there that can help with everything from tracking what you planted and where, to apps that track the rain and help you decide whether you need to water. So many fun tools! Starting with a simple app might be the easiest way to make your gardening a little smarter.
Color and Texture
Bright colors and catchy texture are upcoming garden trends in 2019. Be on the lookout for colors of the moment in red, crimson, and orange to add depth and interest to gardens everywhere.
Plants with interesting textures and patterns are also a garden trend this year. You may see stripes and even polka-dotted leaves popping up in flower beds and plant nurseries alike.
Outdoor Living Spaces
Outdoor living spaces are sometimes referred to as staycation spots in your yard because they make you feel like you are on a vacation anytime you visit. These spaces can include anything from an outdoor kitchen to a water feature. They are often luxurious, low maintenance, and secluded. With these spots, your imagination is often your only limit.
Backyard gardens are not a new trend. Whether you are looking for a frugal way to add produce to your diet, or you are concerned with where your food comes from, backyard gardening is a great idea.
What is a new garden trend is incorporating food where you might otherwise not expect it. Filling hanging baskets with mint, basil, and petunias? Yes! Planting a tomato plant next to your evergreen shrub? Definitely! Food does not only need to be grown in a dedicated garden space in your backyard anymore.
One of the easiest ways to incorporate food into your garden is with herbs. They pack a flavor punch, are inexpensive to grow, and can be planted close to a kitchen door or window for easy access. Just research what grows best in your area and choose a plant you cook with. It is that easy!
