In the past years, gardening has become one of the world’s favorite hobbies. Whether we are talking of a small balcony garden, or a huge back yard filled with plants and trees, taking care of plants is not considered an activity for elderly people anymore.

For those who want to transform their garden this year, we have put together a list of 2020’s gardening trends that will take plant enthusiasts by storm. And, as you’ll see, this year is all about sustainability and working together to create a healthy place, not only for our own well-being but also to help the wildlife.

Vertical gardening

For those of you with limited space, but who still want to bring some green life into their house, vertical gardening is the perfect trend to keep an eye on. Designing a vertical garden is quite easy, especially since there are a lot of products on the market that are ready to use. Wall planters surrounding a small seating area in the backyard are a great thing to try. You can then simply use plants that have a more flowy look, so that they cover up the wall almost entirely, making a cascade of green leaves.

Sustainable soil

Unfortunately, deforestation and erosion have already washed away one-third of the planet’s topsoil. If you want to help the planet, stop using chemical fertilizers and switch to eco-friendly materials. Wood fiber and home-made compost are more nourishing and environmentally-friendly than any type of fertilizer you can find on the market, and it’s pretty easy to get your hands on as well.

After you use a Gressklipper Oslo on the grass, instead of using chemical fertilizers, switch to compost that you can do at home using green waste such as fruit, vegetable, and other organic residues.

Planting for the wildlife

Pollinating insects such as butterflies and bees are going through a very difficult time right now, due to severe deforestation and climate change. This year is all about helping the insect wildlife find safe havens where they can start building a community.

If you want to start a pollinator-friendly garden, switch to plants such as milkweed, lilac, and lavender. Their strong smell is a magnet for pollinating insects and birds (see hummingbirds). So, this spring, why not use garden red skater to switch some plants up in your backyard?

Grow your own food

Growing fresh fruits and vegetables at home has become quite popular recently. Even though sometimes it requires some Nyttekjøretøy to take care of the entire garden, the results are surely going to be worth it.

According to research from the RHS, chilies are the number one vegetable people choose to grow at home, followed closely by beans, peas, and chickpeas. People then use it to make vegetable spreadable pastes, such as hummus, soya pâté, as well as butter.

Even if you have a small garden, you can still grow your own plants. Rosemary, sage, parsley, and basil are extremely easy to grow, and you can do it on your own balcony is you want to.
