Regenerative Gardens: There’s a movement towards restoring biodiversity and rewilding living spaces. This includes the creation of habitats for wildlife and the use of naturalistic aesthetics​.

Vertical gardening: This is gaining popularity, especially in urban areas where space is limited. It involves using vertical surfaces like walls and balconies for growing plants, thus maximising green space in compact areas.

Native Plant Landscaping: There’s an increasing shift towards using plants native to the region. This not only supports local biodiversity but also reduces the need for water, fertilisers, and pesticides​​​.

Edible Gardens: Growing your own food is becoming more popular. This includes everything from vegetables and fruits to edible flowers, allowing for both aesthetic appeal and practical use.​​​​

Multifunctional and Flexible Spaces: Gardens are being designed to serve multiple purposes, from relaxation to home offices and even gyms, with a focus on adaptable layouts and convertible furniture​.

Smart Home Technology: The integration of technology in gardens is on the rise, with automated systems for lighting, irrigation and more, enhancing convenience and efficiency​

Zoning in Larger Gardens: People with larger spaces are creating different zones in their gardens for various activities, such as cooking, dining, and children’s play areas​.

These trends reflect a broader movement towards eco-friendliness, self-sufficiency, and the personalization of outdoor spaces, catering to the changing needs and preferences of gardeners in the UK.
