Gardening is a versatile profession or hobby that’s constantly changing, is your corporate garden up to scratch?
Each year, old trends wilt and new trends bud, so you can be sure that there’s always something to keep you on your toes. This is especially the case for commercial gardens, as it’s essential that visitors and customers enjoy the space they’re in.
Here are some of the best commercial trends for 2019:
1. Perennial and wild gardens
With the recent talk of how damaged our environment is, one of the most prominent trends of 2019 is letting commercial gardens flourish full of wildflowers and herbs to encourage wildlife to visit. That isn’t to say that a garden has to be unkempt, though – you can still hire a commercial gardening team to ensure that it’s in tip-top shape while remaining eco-conscious!
2. Upcycled interiors meet commercial exteriors
Along with an ecological focus, many commercial gardens are doing more to help the planet by reusing and upcycling old interior parts. This could be anything – from turning an old colander into a hanging, self-draining plant pot, to fully redecorating old tables and bringing them outside! A lot of this can be done yourself, but if your commercial garden is in need of more complex decorating work, consider hiring a professional.
3. Big, bold and bright
Gone are the recent trends of muted shades of green and minimalism; 2019 is the year of bold floral colours and contrasting plants of all shapes and sizes. The more colourful and varied it is, the more inviting it’ll appear to visitors – think of the Royal Botanical Gardens in Edinburgh, for example.
4. Shrubbery is making a comeback
In the last few years, shrubbery has been neglected in favour of other forms of simple plants. However, in 2019 shrubs and hedges are coming back into fashion in commercial garden areas, as they’re a simple way to create variation in height and shape. Shrubbery is stigmatised in part due to its apparent high level of upkeep needed. So why not get a professional to do it for you?
