Every year there are lots of gardening trends to choose from. Of course, the most important style to follow is whatever makes you feel the happiest! But having a little bit of inspiration can be the boost you need to give your garden a little makeover.

I love spending time out in my garden and trying out new ideas to make it more comfortable and attractive! So checking out the latest garden trends is a must for me to get the inspiration I need to try out some new things. I like to choose different aspects from various trends and incorporate them into my garden in a way that suits me.

Landscaping in Sydney can sometimes be a challenge. If you live in the city, outdoor space can be limited. In addition, the humid and warm climate can sometimes leave you wondering what plants to use and what style could work best for you.

But don’t worry! I have compiled a list of my favourite gardening trends that can work no matter what climate you live in or how much space you have available!

Low Maintenance

As a person with limited spare time, the low maintenance garden trend is one of my favourites. If you are a busy person, who is worried about finding the time to care for an elaborate garden design, then this might be a perfect trend for you to try out!

Low maintenance gardens are often minimalist and modern in appearance. This style uses symmetrical shapes and clean lines to achieve a minimal yet attractive design!

Small amounts of neatly trimmed lawn, hedges cut into simple shapes, and smart paving stones can easily transform your garden into a low maintenance paradise!

If you decide to add some colourful plants to your minimal garden, make sure to choose varieties that do not require a lot of attention and watering. Some local experts in Sydney landscaping will definitely be able to give you some advice on which plants are more low maintenance!

Use elements of this garden trend to spend less time caring for your garden and more time enjoying it!

Small Spaces

No matter how small your garden is, you can still create a beautiful and trendy outdoor paradise! However, Sydney landscaping can be a little more tricky to plan out if you live in the heart of the city and only have a small outdoor space to play with.

My garden is a relatively small one, so I have also used some of the following ideas to help create a comfortable, attractive and relaxing space for me to enjoy.

In order to make the most out of your smaller garden, use plants of varying heights and colours to create an illusion of space and depth. If you have the room, placing a table and chairs with some colourful plant pots around it is an easy and quick way to brighten up any small garden!

The use of window boxes is also another excellent way to maximise space and add another pop of colour and excitement to your yard. These boxes can hang from your window sill, or you can hang them over your railings if you own a balcony.

If your property has a rooftop area, you could even consider building a green roof to add interest and colour while supporting your local environment!

Colourful and Bright

Another favourite trend of mine is the use of bold colours in the garden! As someone who loves art, the idea of an outdoor space filled with colour makes me so happy.

This style can be achieved by planting flowers and shrubs in lots of bold and beautiful colours. Make sure to vary the height and texture of each plant to make your garden really pop!

Again, I am not a professional when it comes to choosing plants, so if you need assistance to decide on suitable varieties for your garden, you can always get the advice of a local Sydney landscaping expert.

You can allow these plants to grow wild or maintain them so they grow uniformly, depending on your personal preference.

If you love bright colours, then this garden trend is sure to put a smile on your face every day!

Outdoor Sanctuary

This popular garden trend promotes outdoor living and making the most of nature!

To create this style in your home, it’s essential to consider your hobbies and preferences. For example, what kind of activities do you enjoy doing? Whether you like cooking, watching movies, playing games or reading books, try to think of ways you can take these activities outside. This means you can spend more time enjoying the fresh air whilst doing the things you love!

For example, I have been working on a DIY outdoor sofa project, which means I can spend a lot more time in the garden, relaxing, having a drink and reading books!

By creating an outdoor seating area, you can instantly provide a cosy space to enjoy. And if you enjoy cooking a lot, why not build an outdoor kitchen?

If you’re not a DIY person, you can always get the help of an experienced Sydney landscaping company to help out.

If you have a bigger garden, you could even have a swimming pool fitted for hours of cool, relaxing time spent in the sun. Or why not splurge on an outdoor jacuzzi for the cooler months? There are endless possibilities here!

Indoor Garden

And last but not least is the indoor garden trend! Whether you have an outdoor space or not, indoor gardens can bring nature's benefits right inside your home.

To start creating your indoor paradise, find a room or location that gets plenty of sunlight and warmth. Then you can go crazy choosing your favourite houseplants! Buy some cute pots, or paint your own containers to make this space even more unique.

You could even grow an indoor food garden with herbs and fruit trees.

Try Out These Trends For Yourself!

I hope that this round-up of my favourite garden trends has been inspiring to you! As we have discovered, no matter what our style or available space, we can all enjoy a beautiful natural space.

You can feel free to mix and match a variety of your favourite ideas to design a garden that works for you. Have fun designing your dream garden! I’m off to re-design my garden again….
