1. The Mediterranean style in garden design will remain topical in 2017

The Mediterranean style in garden design never seems to go out of style at all. This will remain up to date in 2017. This is certainly also due to the huge interest in cacti and succulents, which can give any garden a Mediterranean look. Exotic garden plants bring that special something into the garden area and bring with them a feeling for a relaxed lifestyle. Some large terracotta pots, colorful and lush garden flowers, olive trees and a shaded seating area are always must-haves in the Mediterranean garden. These help you to create an outdoor space where you can fully enjoy your time-out, regardless of whether the sun is playing along or not. A water feature would round off the Mediterranean look, add another dimension, cool the air in the hottest days and provide a desirable water supply for birds and insects. With so many pluses, it would be hard to do without a water feature in your garden, wouldn’t it? A colorful bistro table is just right for a smaller garden or, if you have more free space, you could place a large table and comfortable chairs there to have the whole family around and adapt the design to the continental style.

2. Colorful fun for your little treasures

Nowadays it is particularly important to encourage children to spend longer periods of time away from digital screens – and instead to explore and get to know nature more closely. A good old-fashioned outside game would certainly be amusing for the little treasures too. Set up a special play area for your children and their friends, a relaxation zone with suitable furniture and design safe playgrounds where the little ones can spend the whole day. You are sure to have a lot of fun in the garden and then enjoy a healthy night’s sleep. This year it is just as important to create a colorful outdoor area for the children, where the little ones can fully enjoy their time in the garden. Choose folding chairs and tables that you can take away quickly in bad weather.

3. The garden can be seen from a different angle

Try to change your perspective and see your garden from a new perspective. You will perceive your outdoor area differently. For example, find an unloved corner in the garden where the morning sun is shining and place a bistro table there. So you can drink your coffee undisturbed and read the news in the morning paper in peace. Of course, some sun loungers would be in the right place there so that you can enjoy the last of the sunshine in the evening with a glass of wine in hand. Treat the garden area as your own relaxation zone and design it the way you like it best.

Every little corner in the open air can give you the peace and serenity you want

4. Close to nature and comfort rolled into one

The main trends in garden design for 2017 include closeness to nature and comfort. Green garden plants and wild areas outside attract the animals from your immediate surroundings and create a relaxed environment. Unmowed grass, field flowers and places for the animals – all of this turns your garden into a nature reserve. A comfortable corner sofa hidden in the wild grass gives you the best place to relax in peace. A pool or maybe a garden pond would be a great idea!

The key words for garden design in 2017 are: closeness to nature and comfort

5. The garden lighting – important in every respect for the 2017 garden design

Since LED technology has become cheaper, there is a much wider choice of outdoor lighting. The right garden lighting in particular helps you create a breathtaking outdoor ambience when the sun goes down. Environmentally friendly lights powered by solar energy can be distributed over the square. This can be used to illuminate the garden paths so that you have more safety when strolling in the garden in the evening. Define beautiful garden areas with the right, targeted lighting or highlight a specific object! Lanterns are a perfect choice as they add a dramatic flair and cast interesting looking shadows over the surroundings. The key to successful garden design is the right lighting concept. Separate individual zones outside with the well thought-out garden lighting and enjoy your work in the evening!
