The sun’s out (for who knows how long) so we’ve collated the very latest tips and trends straight out of this year’s Chelsea Flower Show to help create show-worthy improvements to your garden this summer season.
First up – the future is bright
Yellow was the colour of the Show with almost every shade available used in some shape or form. From bright canary yellow to deep mustards and delicate lemons, yellow is set to bask in the limelight this year and bring sunshine to your garden, even when the sun itself may not shine. Our Granaza flagstone in the colour ‘Sol’ which means sunshine is perfect for incorporating this trend into your garden.
Metal work and sculpture
Adding hard 3D textures to gardens, creating bold shapes out of various metals adds instant impact to the nature within a garden as well as catching the sun’s light at various stages of the day. Bronze and rust are on trend this year.
Feasting on nature
Edible gardening has grown in popularity – irrespective of whether you find yourself in an urban enclave or a county garden. Living walls, herbs in window pots and vegetable patches are all the rage celebrating what can be grown in nature and used in daily living. Use our brick and walling products to complete the look.
Stones to gather moss
The Chelsea Show has this year moved away from the clean cut look to embrace more of nature and this includes stones and rocks in their natural state – jagged edges and all. Incorporating water features offset by large stones makes for an interesting addition to your garden. Our Country Cobble paving water feature with an array of quarry stones at the base will give your garden that on trend rugged feel.
