Balcony gardening has been on a steady rise in recent years, but now, with more people living in rented properties or with little or no outdoor space in city areas, this new approach to gardening is proving to be popular.

Posh Shed explains that 2018 will see ‘growth in the solar market in the garden’ – and not just for ornamental lighting but for practical solutions too. Frost adds: ‘We now offer solar hubs with our sheds to grant gardeners the ability to charge their phone or even power a light so they can stay outdoors longer.’

‘By enhancing the space that is available, regardless of size, it provides an area to express creativity and style. Whether it’s a balcony, patio or windowsill, there’s a range of planting containers and vertical structures to allow you to grow various flowers and foliage,’ explain the team at Flymo.

Already popular in interior design, wood-effect porcelain tiles look set to become a trend in garden design, suggests designer John Wyer FSGD, who first used them two years ago on his award-winning garden at RHS Chelsea. Hard-wearing, scratch, stain and heat-resistant, in 2018 we’ll see them used for both flooring and cladding in a variety of patterns.

“We are loving the introduction of new, non-traditional colors in woven furniture”, said Melissa Simon, Public Relations Manager at Pier 1 Imports. In the picture above you can see a traditional woven chair in a deep electric blue that totally brings the look together.

‘There’s an inspiring new way of looking at your garden which is good news for the more hands-off amongst us,’ say the gardening enthusiasts at The Greenhouse People. ‘Wabi-sabi – an acceptance of the natural cycle of growth, decay, and death – is nothing new for the Japanese who have been practicing this art since the 15th century, but for the Western world it couldn’t be further away from the never-ending quest for perfection.’

The Posh Shed Company also predicts that the popularity of verandas, which the company noticed more customers asking for in 2017, will continue to rise this year.

Decor, Design SUMMER 2017: OUTDOOR DECOR TRENDS TO LOOK OUT FOR April 13, 2017 by bbarros 0

‘Applying muted tones like grey to your woven furniture is increasingly popular, adding an element of sophistication to your outdoor living area,’ say the team at John Lewis. ‘However, as well as the popularity of natural colours and finishes, more of us are becoming braver in our outdoor furniture choices – looking to inject pops of vibrant colour into our outdoor spaces using contemporary furniture designs and cutting-edge textile design.’

‘Prepare to see a contemporary update on the classic crazy paving with large-scale natural indigenous stone, says Cassandra Crouch MSGD. Gardens will also feel less structured, as geometric lines and hard surfaces are softened by planting, and edges are broken down to create the feeling of a garden that has been there for years.

‘Garden space is at a premium for most homeowners,’ explains Richard Frost, managing director at The Posh Shed Company, who had a 300 per cent increase in sales of its Chelsea shed in 2017. ‘The Chelsea is unique for a shed as it features built-in shelving on the outside so that capacity is maximised without internal space being compromised.

According to award-winning garden designer John Wyer FSGD, outdoor structures – not just your average summerhouse – will also be big. Plug and Play’ pergolas – with integrated drainage, lighting and heating will be the must-have garden feature, while outdoor kitchens with dedicated spaces for cooking, eating and entertaining will become a central focus.

Okay, flowers are definitely not an unexpected item when it comes to Spring or Summer decor. However, they’re a classic that never goes wrong and makes every outdoor space feel happier and more complete. The unexpected twist? Make it different. Make greener, make it merrier.

The key here is ‘balancing nature and nurture’, so you’re advised to ‘sit back, relax and reflect on the beauty of your garden’s natural imperfections’. Overgrown perennials, moss-covered stones, rusty iron gates and weathered pots are in keeping with this trend.

“One of the big trends we’re seeing is the emergence of a retro feeling,” says Maureen Welton, Creative Director at Article. “People are going back to natural, woven styles and crochet techniques that add texture to any space. What was popular in the ’70s — like rattan and wicker-inspired furniture — is making a comeback.”

2 Muted tones remain popular but vibrant colour palettes will rule

Designer James Scott MSGD notes that as interest in producing our own food continues to grow, we will see a trend towards edible planting, with greenhouses in particular making a comeback.

Another massive trend, that only comes to reassure the first one, is the use of bold patterned pillows on your outdoor furniture. Don’t be afraid to take risks and make sure to use the wackiest and funniest pillows you can find.

Gardening super brand Flymo explains that gardeners should have an appreciation for the changes in the natural landscapes. ‘Try not to focus on the symmetry and longevity of objects, choose plants and items that will change over time with the seasons,’ they explain. ‘A tree with textured or peeling bark, flowers that display their seed pods during autumn and dried leaves that have fallen under a small tree are great ways to introduce wabi-sabi into your life.’

One of the biggest trends for the year is being able to transport your usual interior setting to your outdoor space. Coffee tables, pillows, rugs and even the occasional blanket are now more than welcome into your outdoor design!

It took centre stage in James Basson’s award-winning garden at RHS Chelsea last year, so it’s no surprise that limestone is set to make a return to the domestic garden. This year, we’ll see the introduction of ‘harder-wearing mid-toned stones rather than the bright white varieties of a few years ago, reflecting the natural, warm colour palettes popular in interior design’.

Euonymus oxyphyllus, an elegant, slow growing shrub from Korea is becoming increasingly popular thanks to its rich, emerald green leaves which turn to shades of yellow, bronze and red in the autumn, and produce a spectacular show of colour in the summer from its cherry-like fruits (pictured).

It’s all about shrubs this year, say designers from the Society of Garden Designers. It’ll be a move away from naturalistic perennials and grasses to more exotic and unusual specimens.

‘We’ve noticed average garden sizes getting smaller, but the need for storage has not changed, so gardeners need to be making the most of the space that they’ve got.’

We don’t know about you, but here at Unique blog we are already dreaming about Summer and the delightful warm evenings we’re going to spend with friends in our newly decorated outdoors. So if you’re still not sure what to do with your outdoor decor, here are a few unique tips that will be trendy all Summer long!

It’s a trend seen at the new NEO Bankside development opposite London’s Tate Modern, but this year we can expect to see more low level woodland-style planting mixing ferns, mosses, anemones and tufted grasses, says garden designer Adolfo Harrison MSGD. This will work particularly well in tricky, shaded city gardens.

Whether you’re in need of a complete garden re-design or simply want to upgrade what you already have, we’ve compiled the top trends of 2018 with insight from gardening experts and designers on planting, materials, design styles and lifestyle influences, all of which will shape our gardens this year.

‘Veganism is one of the fastest growing lifestyle movements with the number of Brits choosing a plant-based diet rising by more than 360 per cent over the past decade,’ explains The Greenhouse People. ‘Coupled with rising food prices and a growing appreciation of organic produce, in 2018 the grow your own movement will really see a resurgence.’

“The use of wood and natural materials, like rattan and teak, are perfect for more rural, rustic spaces,” Welton says. Plus, “Solid teak tables and chairs age beautifully outdoors, developing a weathered-gray look over time.”

There are many varieties that can be easily grown in the garden, suggests Flymo, who recommends peas, broccoli, spinach and even quinoa. Start small with a window box full of herbs, or cordon off a patch of your garden and experiment.

Mindfulness – the ancient Buddhist tradition of immersing yourself in the present moment – has become a huge buzzword in wellbeing over the past few years, and it’s set to have a ‘strong influence over how we design and appreciate our gardens in 2018,’ predicts The Greenhouse People.

Ivory, bisque and Maui blue are some of the coastal colors that will be everywhere this Summer. They create nice, relaxed ambiances that put everyone in a good and light mood!

The focus will be on ‘incorporating elements which stimulate the senses – like accents of calming blues and energising yellows, pots of strongly-scented therapeutic lavender and a water feature to create a relaxing ambience’, they suggest.

And the shed trends don’t stop there… According to Posh Shed, multi-use sheds are also growing in popularity. ‘A shed isn’t just a place for storing tools anymore,’ Frost explains. ‘The she-shed has been a big trend in the past few years and we’re now seeing people using sheds to serve a more practical functional space. We’ve had some fantastic projects where we’ve created half greenhouse/half shed – the greenshed if you will – to help people maximise their available space.’

Adolfo Harrison MSGD also predicts a trend towards mixing different stones together to reflect the various colours and tones within the garden itself.

Polygonal paving was big at RHS Chelsea last year, but according to the Society of Garden Designers, 2018 is all about asymmetry.

Spring and summer is the ideal time for enjoying the outdoor space, and alfresco dining is set to be bigger than ever this year. Outdoor entertaining and kitchen areas will be a key trend, says The Greenhouse People. ‘It’s perfect for those of us who lack space in our kitchens or dining rooms, as we can move entertaining friends and family outside,’ they explain. ‘Create a dedicated area with comfy furniture and mood lighting, complete with a sunken fire pit, BBQ or pizza oven.’

“Mosaic tables continue to be a huge trend for both dining and accent tables, in materials from natural stone, to ceramic and glass,” says Simon.

Are you thinking about your garden and how to plan ahead to get it looking in great condition for the warmer months? If yes, you’ve come to the right place.

Where a perpetual copper colour is preferred, copper-effect stainless steels will be a popular alternative. More generally, we will see a move away from shiny stainless steel finishes, says garden designer Cassandra Crouch MSGD, with a natural weathered patina becoming popular instead.

Flymo says solar lighting will be a welcome addition to the garden: ‘Solar lighting is the answer and it’s set to be even bigger in 2018 thanks to a number of factors including cost, safety and of course it creates a perfect atmosphere to relax and unwind in.’

A key interior and kitchen trend, copper, both as a material and colour, will make a big impact in 2018, according to Paul Hensey FSGD. Weathering to a beautiful bluish-green patina, hard landscaping in copper can provide a wonderful sense of warmth to planting and a contrast to surrounding gravel, stone or wood.
