Landscaping guidelines

Landscaping is constantly evolving to meet current challenges such as sustainable development, technology and the creation of versatile outdoor spaces. Here’s a look at some of the major trends expected to shape landscaping in the years ahead.

A climate-friendly garden

In an era when climate change is profoundly affecting our environments, adapting gardens to the local climate is becoming crucial. This ecological approach favors the use of native, drought-resistant plants, requiring less water and maintenance, while preserving local beauty and biodiversity. A climate-friendly garden is not only a responsible response to environmental challenges, but also a significant source of savings in terms of resources.

This guide will provide you with valuable insights and practical examples that illustrate the effectiveness of these methods in real-life projects.


New technologies in the garden

Technology is invading our gardens to make them smarter and easier to manage. Imagine an irrigation system you can control with your smartphone, or lights that automatically adapt to the weather. Autonomous mowing robots help lawn enthusiasts save time and resources for impeccable gardening.

Better outdoor living space

With the rise of telecommuting, the outdoors is being transformed into a real living space. Gardens are designed as extensions of the home. They are perfect for working in the shade or entertaining friends around an outdoor kitchen. Elements such as outdoor kitchens, dining areas and comfortable relaxation zones are becoming essential for an enriching outdoor experience.

Gardens for biodiversity

Encouraging biodiversity in our gardens contributes to overall ecological health. By integrating a variety of plants and creating specific habitats such as ponds or insect hotels, our gardens become refuges for many species. Attracting insect pollinators and birds enriches your garden’s ecosystem, while providing an invigorating natural spectacle.

Also of note : Landscaping with an edible garden

As food prices continue to rise, interest in food sovereignty and edible gardens is growing. Many people are looking for ways to grow their own fruit, vegetables and herbs, even in limited spaces. The possibility of having fresh food at hand, without the need for a large garden, is appealing to those who like to eat well.

Growing an edible garden can be as easy as setting up planting trays on a balcony or sowing herbs in pots on a windowsill. What a pleasure to have fresh herbs to enhance your dishes.

Edible gardens provide fresh food and teach family members, young and old, about growing plants. They encourage a lifestyle closer to nature. By following this trend, you help to protect the environment and enjoy the satisfaction of eating what you’ve grown.
