2015 OUTDOOR TRENDS

Hold on to your gardening trowels. Fresh gardening trends inspired by local living and overall well-being are sure to make a positive impact on both our homes and our communities in 2015. From environmentally friendly plants and products to garden-tainment to portable gardening, this year’s trends will shape the garden and outdoor living for the coming year and beyond.

Wellbeing from the Outside In. For more and more people, health is a top priority. People aren’t just gardening for beauty, they are gardeing to nourish their communities, the environment and their own wellbeing. Trees, flowers, plants, birds and bees all increase overall health and wellness for self, society and the planet.

Garden-tainment. The party is moving outside! With the U.S. demand for outdoor plants expected to grow in 2015, garden-tainment is quickly becoming a way to personalize your outdoor space. Plants will play a key role whether it is potting up containers and terrariums, cooking fresh food from your garden or redecorating your patio.

Bite-Sized Decadence. Whether in a small space garden or on an apartment balcony, compact plants will pack a punch in 2015, with rich colors and textures as major focal points. Look for show stopping plants this spring like millionbells, impatiens, begonias and more!

Cacti and Succulents. No-fuss cacti and succulents are ideal for people that seek attractive, low-maintenance plants. Tiny and easy to grow succulents in bold containers bring style both inside and outside the home.

Bed Head. Purposefully unstyled outdoor spaces are the result of intentionally working within the natural landscape. This casual landscape style expresses an effortless personality with an anything goes attitude. Create bed head meadows and natural habitats using native plants to increase diversity, balance and ecosystems.
