Top Garden Design Trends of 2013

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

Your Garden is an extension of your home, like an extra room with a touch more sun (and rain), so it is essential to treat it with the care and planning you would a kitchen, bathroom or bedroom. When renovating our homes we tend to look to the latest fashions and classic ideas for inspiration to create a unique design all our own, we at Kite Landscapes believe planning the look and functionality of your garden should be no different. Here are some of the hottest trends of the year that inspire us:

Functional Gardens

The word’s looking greener every day and we couldn’t be happier, the abundance of people making use of their space to grow their own food is not only good for the planet but good for your pockets! Growing your own fruit and veg is an art that takes practice, it can be frustrating at first, that’s why having an enticing garden is vital for keeping you keen and your fingers green.

Vintage Style

The retro look is everywhere: our living rooms, our wardrobes our hairstyles and now our gardens. Nostalgic designs bring us comfort and style and that’s why 2013 has seen a boom in Victorian/Edwardian plants and design: hydrangeas, lavender and moonflower are amongst the top varieties to be making a comeback both for their beauty and their scent.

Water Features

Nothing says relaxation like the sound of running water. Geometric shaped pools and fountains give your garden the modern edge and classic ponds and statues keep things classic. Water features entice you and local wild life from frogs and badgers to birds and foxes, and offer a beautiful and calming presence right outside your door.

Here at Kite Landscapes our goal is to bring our passion for plants and nature to your home. We are a family run business in the Berkshire/Surrey area and our skilled team of green fingered landscapers and gardeners are on hand to help you realise your garden dreams, call us now on: 01344 886 331 (Ascot) or 01276 932 303 (Chobham) or get in touch online and we’ll design your dream garden together.
