As we embrace the year 2023, the Northern Beaches landscape is coming alive with innovative trends that marry aesthetic appeal with practical sustainability. At Abloom Gardening, we're excited to guide you through the newest movements in garden design and outdoor living. Here's a snapshot of the top trends that are captivating homeowners this year:
This year is all about going native. Gardens are being designed with local flora to foster a natural ecosystem that requires less maintenance and attracts native wildlife, creating a tranquil and environmentally friendly sanctuary in your backyard.
The lines between indoors and out continue to blur with the transformation of gardens into functional extensions of the home. Spaces for entertainment, dining, and relaxation outdoors are becoming more elaborate, featuring everything from fully-equipped outdoor kitchens to cosy fire pits and weatherproof furnishings.
Sustainability is no longer just a buzzword; it's a way of life that's penetrating the world of landscaping. Practices like rainwater harvesting, solar-powered lighting, and the use of recycled materials are increasingly popular, showcasing a shift towards more environmentally conscious gardening.
Gardens that cater to the table are on the rise. Whether it's a small herb garden on a balcony or a dedicated vegetable plot, there's growing enthusiasm for spaces that are both beautiful and bountiful, providing fresh produce and reducing the need to shop for certain kitchen staples.
The future is here with the incorporation of technology into our outdoor spaces. Automated irrigation, app-controlled garden lighting, and self-maintaining lawn systems are simplifying garden upkeep, allowing more time for enjoyment and less for chores.
These trends signal a movement towards more thoughtful, liveable, and sustainable outdoor spaces. If you're keen to bring some of these 2023 landscaping trends into your own garden, Abloom Gardening is here to help. Get in touch with us today to discuss how these trends can be woven into your outdoor sanctuary.
