Home Living : April 20th 2010
6 HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, April 20, 2010 HOMELIVING Ultra-modern gardens » ADVERTISING FEATURE There is a major shift worldwide towards individualism in the garden. Modern gardeners are expressing themselves in much more unique ways, encouraged by online friends. Husqvarna Australia has released its 2010 Global Garden Report. This year's study is unique because it has delved into the ever-growing social media landscape, especially blogs, to reveal the top international gardening trends. KITCHEN GARDENS The top two trends in contemporary society were kitchen gardening and the organic garden. Derived from the desire for a more sustainable, cost-effective and healthier way of life, these two trends were very popular in Australia. More Australians are growing their own organic vegetables and herbs in kitchen gardens for easy access to the freshest ingredients to use in their cooking. Increasingly kitchen gardens are found on balconies, terraces and window boxes. This type of gardening is all about keeping food costs down and vegetables pesticide-free. WILD GARDENS The desire to re-create the wilderness in the garden has meant that many Australians are letting nature run its course. This also suits those with limited time and budgets. NATIVE AUSTRALIAN GARDENS The report confirms that the drought and the desire to use water responsibly have had a big impact on Australian gardening. Many people choose drought- tolerant native plants which extract moisture from the soil much more effectively than their non-native counterparts.
