Now that we are almost into the summer of 2022, you might be considering how you can arrange or redesign your garden to make it look the best it possibly can.

Gardening is a great way to keep active and destress. Not only that, but once you have your garden ready for the summer, you will be able to enjoy the fruits of your labour and relax in it.

So, you could go for the standard bundle of flowers in your garden, alongside a water feature and deck chairs… but you could also go with some of the most recent and compelling garden design trends in 2022.

Embracing such trends could help make your garden look gorgeous and ready for you to enjoy in style – so, let’s take a closer look at a few of them.


  1. Jewel-coloured flowers


One of the best things about owning a garden is the many different types of flowers you can potentially plant in it.

Instead of randomly planting flowers, find bold colours that resemble the colours of jewels, then plant them together. Some good examples could be dark purples, reds, oranges and blues.

You could even look for plants that have jewel-coloured stems. This will help make the flowers stand out, to the point where you will see that a lot of bees will come into your garden.


  1. Nature-scaping


One of the biggest trends in garden design in 2022 is to make a garden look as natural as possible. You can make your own garden look like a landscape in order to feel fully immersed in nature.

Having an immersive environment that can house wildlife can make you feel calmer, while also showing that you do your part to provide habitats for animals. To honour this trend in your own garden, be sure to focus on plentiful natural materials and surfaces.  


  1. Contemporary relaxation spaces


Contemporary outdoor furniture can provide some bold colours to your garden that can help you relax during the summer time. The materials can be combined with soft pillows to make sure the environment can help you relax.

If you want to make your garden look bold and daring, try finding furniture that has sharp angles and is in a bright colour. You can find tables and chairs to sit with your family and friends. You can even buy bold hammocks and beanbags for chilling out in the sun.

Don’t forget that if you are going for a wilderness theme, you can find furniture in natural colours or even create a small retreat in the garden that you can cover in grass and flowers to add to the theme of the outdoors.


  1. Tapestry lawns


If you want to create a contemporary look in your garden, instead of using fake grass, try using different square patches of grass that can build up a design. These can be great for smaller gardens in urban settings.


  1. Birdbaths


Nowadays, birdbaths have made a comeback as they can be combined with contemporary water features. Not only can you use them to add some natural sounds to your garden, but they also give you an obvious opportunity to directly help wildlife. In some cases, if the given water feature is large enough, it can also be used to provide water to plants or grass.
