Garden trends with summer bulbs
The winter is over and the first signs of spring are everywhere. One thing is clear - it’s time to start looking forwards to spending the spring and summer months outdoors. Whether it’s in the garden, on the balcony or on the garden terrace, your outside space is the only place to really unwind. And to make the most out of it, you might want some inspiration from the latest garden trends. The harmony garden, the energy garden and the unisex garden are going to be the only gardens to be seen in this year. Which one can you see yourself relaxing in?
The harmony garden
Instead of taking nature for granted, this garden is a tribute to Mother Nature. That’s because the harmony garden is all about recognizing and embracing nature and all her wonderful powers. There’s a good reason why people like to surround themselves with flowers and plants - they’re a source of natural energy. The harmony garden is a garden where you can truly lose yourself and feel completely zen. There are beautiful corners for sitting outside, relaxing hammocks and the perfect spots for yoga. All that green is bound to take you to a state of complete relaxation. Summer bulbs like African lilies (Agapanthus), lilies (Lilium), begonias (Begonia), dahlias (Dahlia) and gladioli (Gladiolus) - they will gently soothe and stimulate your senses, giving you a sense of nature’s warm embrace. The most important colour in the harmony garden is the colour green. Combined with the colourful accents of the flowers - pink, purple and yellow - you’ll have a sense of being at one with nature in your own back garden.
The energy garden
Ever heard of a garden that energizes you but still manages to make you feel relaxed? That’s the energy garden. Its combination of fresh green foliage and strong, bold flowers will transform your outdoor area into a place of calm and energy. Bold colours like red and yellow, combined with black and white, help to create real dynamism. The repetition of geometric designs is another central feature of the active garden. The bold colours of summer bulbs like dahlias (Dahlia), lilies (Lilium), begonias (Begonia) and montbretia (Crocosmia) really make their presence felt. So if you’re someone with bags of energy and get-up-and-go, you’re bound to feel on top form in the energy garden.
The unisex garden
In the unisex garden, the boundaries between indoors and outdoors fade away - the two spaces flow seamlessly into one another. Everything that’s growing, whether it’s inside or around the house, is just as important. And it’s a place where men and women will both feel just as comfortable. This is because it combines feminine colours with robust, masculine materials, which, in turn, incorporate elegant and refined surface textures. In the unisex garden, everything combines to form one harmonious whole. Summer bulbs in bold pastel shades of pink and purple complete the colour palette, especially when they are integrated into the design. The perfect summer bulbs for this garden are gladiolus (Gladiolus), blazing star (Liatris), dahlias (Dahlia), lilies (Lilium) and varieties of turmeric.
