Hanging house plants became a big trend in interior design this year, and people are translating this to their outdoor spaces as well. Plants won’t just be in the ground anymore. We’ll be seeing a lot of hanging plants that make a statement.

  1. Environmentally-Conscious Design

Climate change is a serious issue and gardeners are taking notice, which is why environmentally-conscious plants and garden designs are becoming more popular this year.

This design principle includes plants that conserve water, so they’re ideal for areas that have drought problems or where droughts are projected to become more severe.

If you’re not a fan of a high-maintenance garden, we’ve got good news for you. Homeowners are starting to lean towards garden design that is unkempt and mimics how plants would exist in their natural environment.

Well-manicured plants and trees aren’t necessary, so this means less work in the garden.

  1. Bright Pops of Color 

When you’re redesigning your garden, don’t be afraid of some unexpected color choices. Bright pops of color are a notable trend in both plants and other outdoor elements like your patio furniture.

Don’t shy away from neons or unconventional color combinations and you’ll be right on trend.

  1. Get Creative With Materials 

A garden is more than just plants. You might also have a fence, pathways, patio furniture and more. People are using this as a chance to get creative with different metals and materials. Walls made out of logs, for example, are popular.

Another trend is making unique combinations of materials, such as wood and concrete.
