Like many industries, landscaping and landscape gardening experience trends that celebrities, magazines, television shows and similar cultural influencers popularise. One year we might find that our Redhill and Surrey clients are opting for a certain type of garden fencing or patio laying; another, our driveway contractors might register a massive jump in the number of clients choosing block paving over competing materials.
To remain at the top of our game, the Andrew Jee Landscaping team must keep up with all the emerging trends. So, on this page, we’ve run through a few that we believe will always stand the test of time!
For many years, landscape gardening trendsetters have advocated distinctly man-sculpted minimalism in their gardens. But recently, they’ve been increasingly moving toward a more overgrown, natural aesthetic. For example, lots of green and plants on climbers bringing life to garden fencing will be one way that homeowners can enhance their outdoor area.
For several years now, gardens have become more and more comfortable and seen as a place not just to unwind but spend a serious amount of time. Sheltered areas completed with heating and lighting for those chillier evenings are very in demand. Hot tubs, which Andrew Jee Landscaping specialise in installing, are part of this move toward more luxurious outdoor living. Consider integrating one within your outdoor space – the fun doesn’t need to stop at patio laying (and this is coming from a patio laying specialist)!
Any driveway contractors who know their stuff will tell you that the sheer popularity of block paving as a material refuses to waver. Why? It looks fantastic and is affordable, versatile, low maintenance and durable. It ticks all the boxes and needs to be a quality driveway material. While this isn’t a new trend, being the area’s go-to driveway contractors, we didn’t think it’d be right not to give credit where credit is due – block paving is sticking around.
Building on the earlier point of an outdoor living trend, fire pits and barbeques are also proving hot property! Great fun to gather around with family and friends and a fantastic staging area during gatherings and parties; what beats toasting your hands against an open fire with a few burgers on the grill? A fire pit or BBQ to complement your patio laying project is a grand idea.
This won’t be news to anyone keen on landscape gardening, but growing your fruit, veg, and spices is extremely popular. Magazines and television shows encouraging people to have a go, as it’s not only economical and healthy but also quite fun, have spurred on people around Redhill and the wider UK. The 360% increase in British vegans over the past decade probably has something to do with it! The team at Andrew Jee Landscaping is happy to help you integrate edible plants if you wish, and some can even be planted to grow up garden fencing if you lack space on the ground.
