Hottest Gardening Trends of 2018

The days are long and the sun is shining, which means it's time to get your garden on.

Here are 5 trends that are sure to be hot in 2018, according to PureWow

1) Mid-Garden Dining Rooms

Outdoor dining is no longer relegated to the patio right off the house. This year, expect to se chic little setups under pergolas and gazebos sited deeper into the garden. 

2) Ground cover "Lawns"

No one likes to mow. Low-maintenance ground cover plantings are the ultimate alternative to green grass lawns. 

3) Luxe Veggie Planters

With the “grow your own” movement bigger than ever, nothing notates an au courant garden quite like a lush, healthy patch of lettuces, herbs and tomatoes. The elevated twist this season? Making them a focal point by opting for high-style, custom planters.

4) Winter Pretty Plants

Sure, everything’s springing to life now, but remember what your garden looked like a few weeks ago? Many landscape architects are noting this and prioritizing hardy plantings that look attractive even on those cold November days. Consider layered ornamental grasses evergreens like boxwood and juniper, or early bloomers like quince and witch hazel.

5) Dahlias Galore

With their punchy colors, it's no great surprise that flouncy, jewel-toned dahlias are the backyard bloom of the season.
