The Mediterranean style brings warmth and Mediterranean exoticism into the garden


1. The Mediterranean style of garden design remains current in 2017

The Mediterranean style of garden design never seems to go out of fashion. It 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 introduce the special something into the garden area and bring along the feeling for a relaxed life style. 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 create an outdoor space where you can fully enjoy your break, whether the sun is playing or not. A water feature would round out 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 backyard, right? 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 customize the design to the continental style.

2. A colorful fun for your little treasures

It is particularly important nowadays to encourage children to spend a long time away from digital screens – instead exploring nature and get up close and personal. A good old-fashioned outdoor game would certainly be quite amusing for the little treasures. Create a special play area for your children and their friends, a relax area with matching furniture and create safe playgrounds where the little ones can spend the whole day. You will definitely have fun in the garden and then enjoy a good night’s sleep. This year it is equally important to create a colorful outdoor area for the children, where the little ones enjoy their time in the garden. Choose foldable chairs and tables that can be quickly removed in bad weather.

3. The garden can be seen from a different angle

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

4. Close to nature and comfort in one

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

The key words of 2017 garden design are: proximity to nature and comfort

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

Since the LED technology has become cheaper, there is a much wider range of outdoor lighting. Just the right garden lighting helps you create a breathtaking outdoor ambience when the sun goes down. Environmentally friendly, solar powered lights can be distributed across the space. The garden paths can be illuminated so that you have more security during the evening walk in the garden. Define beautiful garden areas with the appropriate, targeted lighting or highlight a specific object! Lanterns are a perfect choice, adding a dramatic flair and throwing interesting-looking shadows on the surroundings. The key to successful garden design is the right lighting concept. Separate individual zones from the well-designed garden lighting and enjoy your work in the evening!
