With a trading history stretching back to 2013, and with more than 15 years of experience shared amongst our staff, DM Landscapes has seen a variety of trends come and go. As a time-served landscaping company, we have a keen eye for weeding out those with a short shelf life. This allows us to prioritise those with a more timeless quality. From garden patios to garden fencing, you will have clear ideas on how you want your dream garden in Worthing to look.
Of course, we keep your wants and needs at the heart of everything we do. However, we always try to develop designs in line with trends that will maintain long-term appeal. Garden paving, garden decking and all other landscaping features represent significant investments, so you don’t want to grow tired of them after a couple of years.
Below, we have looked at some of the current popular trends inspiring garden landscaping work. If this sparks your own creativity, call our landscaping company on 07504 233 123 to schedule an initial consultation.
Create Focal Points
There’s a reason why garden patios and garden decking are traditional favourites when it comes to transforming outside spaces. The same even applies to all forms of garden paving as well as garden fencing.
As the larger, more expensive features of your garden design, it’s only natural to make them the central focus. You will see them day in, day out. Visitors to your Worthing home will look at and even use them when they come to socialise in your garden. Why wouldn’t you make them a focal point?
The specifics of what this involves depends entirely on your own design aspirations and lifestyle requirements. Common examples include creating bespoke patterns with block paving and using other eye catching materials in straight or curved lines, or even a combination of both.
Keep Maintenance Low
During the design phase, you must balance the excitement that comes with creating colour and texture with the reality of maintaining the finished space. Of course, we don’t want you to compromise on your vision. As such, if you want to press ahead with a high-maintenance garden, you can rely on our landscaping company to keep it looking its best year after year.
However, if you prefer as little maintenance work as possible, you will need to factor this in from the outset.
It’s no surprise that we continually receive requests to help homeowners in Worthing and across Sussex reduce overall garden maintenance. This includes laying large garden patios or more garden paving, fitting artificial grass and replacing old, failing garden fencing with a more robust, secure installation.
Climate Change Considerations
There’s no doubt that summer temperatures are continuing to rise. As a result, our landscaping company has seen an increasing number of requests to make gardens more resilient. For example, this can involve introducing plants that store water and naturally fend for themselves. You can also consider substituting a lawn for artificial grass, or extending garden decking or patios to cut down on water use.
