Create a whole new style this summer with these new garden trends!

Do you want to create a home garden that looks great, but is still manageable? Look no further, here at LocalSearch we have found a range of landscaping themes and garden trends that will add a vibrant look to your home.

Vintage Flowers


Create your own colourful wonderland with a variety of mixed flowers. Turn your garden into a rainbow, or mix and match with similar colours. Line the garden with white, blue and purple flowers for a cool and calm look. For a warmer look plant yellow, pink and red flowers. Keep in mind flowers are pretty, but they are high maintenance so be prepared to get out the watering can.

Some great flowers to use include:

  • Daisies
  • Sunflowers
  • Mixed varieties
  • Gerberas

Modern Style


Have you got a busy household with no time to water plants? Choose a variety of succulents and resilient plants for over the summer months. Modern designs include a popular arrangement of palm trees and mixed cacti. Palm trees require a small amount of maintenance with residual husks and fronds. However, agaves require little to no watering or care and can be potted or planted.

Some plants that are easy to maintain and require little attention include:

  • Assorted succulents
  • Aloe-Vera plants
  • Palm trees
  • Agaves

Rainforest Haven


Turn your garden into a peaceful paradise. The sound of chirping birds and swaying branches creates a therapeutic and calming atmosphere. Dracaena plants add a modern look to your garden with white stripe varieties available. Big fig trees are great for shading your home, so cool down naturally over summer with a tranquil garden.

Try out these plants for a rainforest feel:

  • Fig tree
  • Dracaena
  • Snake Plant
  • Mistletoe Cactus

Sweet & Simple


Keep it simple and easy with a neat garden. Don’t go over the top with a range of varieties, but simply mass plant to create a hedge or line a garden. Lavender and Mondo grass works great as ground cover and Murraya plants are perfect for creating a hedge. Add some colour to your simple landscape with some purple cordylines; their vibrant colour adds depth to a green hedge.

Try these plants for a neat and tidy garden:

  • Murraya plants
  • Mondo grass
  • Lavender
  • Cordylines
