Garden Trends to Watch in 2024

A Glimpse into the Future of Outdoor Living

As we welcome the new year, the world of gardening and outdoor spaces is about to undergo a remarkable transformation. The experts have spoken, and the trends for 2024 are nothing short of captivating. Get ready to be transported into a realm where the boundaries between nature and technology blur, where nostalgia meets modernity, and where the very act of gardening becomes a form of self-care.

Sustainability Takes Center Stage

Gone are the days when a pristine, manicured lawn was the epitome of a well-tended garden. In 2024, the focus has shifted towards creating lush, vibrant spaces that not only delight the senses but also nourish the planet. Leanne Potts, an award-winning journalist, explains, “We are seeing more interest in soil health, doing good for the environment, and creating a space that’s like a Garden of Eden.”

This newfound emphasis on sustainability has given rise to the popularity of pollinator gardens. These oases of biodiversity not only provide a haven for bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds but also incorporate edible plants, reducing the reliance on traditional lawns. As Justin Hancock, a horticulturist and brand manager for Costa Farms, puts it, “Millennials are more environmentally conscious than past generations. Younger people want to feel good about the environment and about contributing to a better planet.”

Biophilic Design Takes Root

Stepping into the future, the concept of biophilic design – the incorporation of natural elements into built environments – is poised to take the gardening world by storm. As our homes and workplaces become increasingly connected to the great outdoors, the demand for lush, thriving houseplants has skyrocketed. According to Katie Tamony, the chief marketing officer for Monrovia, “Biophilic design is a growing trend that incorporates elements like plants, earthy colors, and natural light in homes and offices to create a connection between the built environment and nature.”

This trend has given rise to a newfound appreciation for houseplants with stunning foliage. Justin Hancock explains, “There’s more interest now in houseplants with gold foliage. Most houseplants have green foliage, so it pops if you have a plant that’s bright gold or yellow-green.” From the ever-popular monstera to the vibrant philodendron, these captivating plants are poised to take center stage in the coming year.

Seeking Solace in the Garden

In an age of constant distractions and overwhelming stress, the garden has become a sanctuary, a place to find peace and respite. As Katie Tamony notes, “Gardening has become an activity that lets us tune out the noise of the world.” This newfound appreciation for the therapeutic power of gardening has led to an increased focus on creating meditative spaces and incorporating fragrant plants that can soothe the senses.

Imagine a quiet corner of your garden, adorned with a smattering of sweetly scented blooms and a cozy seating area. It’s a place where you can sit, breathe, and let the stresses of the day melt away. This is the essence of the “garden as therapy” trend, a concept that is poised to take the world by storm in 2024.

Embracing the Extremes

As the planet grapples with the realities of climate change, gardeners are seeking out plants that can withstand the increasingly extreme weather conditions. According to Carson Downing, “Last year was one of the hottest on record for many US cities, and 2024 is expected to be no different as the planet faces increasingly extreme climate conditions.”

In response, the demand for heat-tolerant and drought-resistant plants is on the rise. Justin Hancock of Costa Farms suggests that mandevilla, a tropical vine, and lavender are poised to become popular choices, as they can thrive in the face of scorching temperatures and limited water.

Containers Take Center Stage

For those with limited outdoor space, the rise of container gardening is a game-changer. The National Gardening Association has reported a 200% increase in container gardening in a single year, and this trend shows no signs of slowing down.

Urban dwellers, in particular, are embracing the versatility of container gardening. As Maryah Greene, a Brooklyn-based plant stylist and consultant, explains, “Suspending plants from a ceiling or mounting them on the wall lets you maximize the plant life in a sliver of space. They let you squeeze a garden into an urban space.”

From cascading hanging baskets to compact planter boxes, the options for container gardening are endless, allowing even the most space-challenged gardeners to create their own personal oasis.

Nostalgia Meets Modernity

In an era of constant change and uncertainty, many gardeners are finding solace in the familiar. According to Katie Tamony, “We want to be reminded of landscapes we’ve seen surrounding 100-year-old houses where the plants are a link to an era we imagine was simpler than the one we live in now.”

This nostalgia-fueled trend has sparked a resurgence in the popularity of classic flowers like roses, hydrangeas, and peonies. These timeless beauties, now complemented by modern disease-resistance and ease of care, are poised to grace gardens across the country in 2024.

Embracing the Futuristic

Not everyone is looking to the past for inspiration, though. According to the experts at Monrovia, Millennials and Gen Z are embracing the world of science fiction, and they’re bringing that futuristic energy into their gardens.

Imagine a landscape filled with plants in vibrant shades of purple, hot pink, and lime green – a palette inspired by the otherworldly fungi of Netflix’s hit series “The Last of Us.” Garden Media Group has even declared lime green, dubbed “cyber lime,” as the new black – a bold, futuristic shade that symbolizes the interplay between nature and technology.

From glow-in-the-dark night gardens to alien-like succulents, the possibilities for creating a truly sci-fi-inspired outdoor oasis are endless. It’s a trend that’s sure to capture the imagination of the young and the young-at-heart alike.

A Future of Endless Possibilities

As we step into 2024, the world of gardening is poised for a transformation like never before. From the embrace of sustainability and biophilic design to the rise of nostalgia and futuristic trends, the opportunities to create truly remarkable outdoor spaces are endless.
