What The Future Of Gardening Looks Like
There are many great benefits to gardening. If you are someone who likes to garden, then you will already know what many of these are. There is the enjoyment of spending time outdoors and in nature, of feeling that you are doing something positive for the world, and a peaceful sense of creation too. If you are gardening within the context of a business, you might well be aware of some of the larger benefits to infrastructure that gardening can have. Whatever your approach and use of it, it might be interesting to note what kinds of changes we can expect in the future of gardening. How will gardening look and how will it function in the future?
Of course, it’s not as though we don’t already use indoor gardening. Of course we do, it’s just that it looks likely that there is going to be more and more indoor gardening in the future. One of the reasons for this is that it has particular environmental benefits compared to growing outside. That’s because it uses less land, less soil and less water. If you are thinking of getting into indoor gardening already, you might want to check out Eden Horticulture for some interesting ideas on how to get set up. This kind of gardening really could be the way of the future.
It is likely that gardens themselves are going to become smaller over time, with more and more people living in the world sharing space, and house prices getting higher and higher all the time. For that reason, you will start to see the use of alternative spaces increasingly often, as a means of trying to garden wherever possible. Expect even more upward gardens, such as upcycled coffee cans on garden walls, the use of windowsill and roofs to create addendums, and other creative uses of space.
There is some evidence to suggest that the traditional lawn of old will not survive much longer. People are slowly turning towards more of a wild-feeling gardening style, where a perfectly manicured lawn doesn’t really fit the picture at all. Gardens are much more likely to have a variety of types of space, and to be less focused on these older traditional forms. If you are particularly attached to your lawn, of course you are still well within your rights to keep it growing strong and proud!
Planting For Pollinators
