We put together Top Garden Ideas of 2023 Using Oak – a natural, sustainable wood full of character and heritage.
Whether you cycle through trends, attempt to stay ahead, or stick a flamingo in your garden and call it a day: You want to make your garden unique to you.
So let’s dive in. How can you incorporate Oak into the latest garden trends while still staying true to your style?
1. Overgrown Gardens – Greenery is the New Terracotta
We’ve seen the cottage-core pictures on Instagram and Pinterest. We’ve dreamed about having a lilac filled field behind our house.
A great idea for your senses and for the bees! This trend is still beating its hooves into the ground from 2022, and Hardwoods Group is excited about it.
The warm colour of natural oak innately compliments lush greens and vibrant floral pigments. Settle Oak into your overgrown garden and watch your greenery come to life.
Structures such as gazebos or even pavilions are great additions for bigger gardens. And if you’re looking to supplement your smaller space with Oak, we supply wholesale oak to be purchased and worked into beautiful benches, tables, and more.
2. Outdoor Living Spaces
If there’s anything we’ve learned in the last half-decade, it’s that we no longer want to be inside. Nature is calling us back to the great outdoors, even if it’s only to read in the shade or to fire up the grill.
If it’s biophilic design you’re after, install a garden living room or an outdoor kitchen. You’ll be back in nature’s hands in no time. And who knew you could enjoy it so close to home?
The best part? Design them to be open during the summer and enclosed during the winter.
3. Sustainable Oak
Sustainability has been at the forefront of everyone’s mind for a while now. This isn’t just a trend. It’s a way of living.
Plastic garden furniture such as patio sets, plastic gazebos, and plastic sheds, though cheap, contribute to pollution from manufacturing all the way to the tip.
And since the majority of plastic waste currently goes to landfills and incineration we can no longer ignore the serious impacts that waste has on the environment.
Oak is a natural resource and renewable. If sustainably sourced, using timber can have a massively positive environmental impact.
At Hardwoods Group, we use sustainable European oak from well-managed sources. We’re aware that it is our responsibility as a timber supplier to protect the world around us and the trees that give us so much. We proudly stock FSC and PEFC certified timber.
Choose oak for your garden structures and stand out against the ocean of plastic-riddled gardens.
4. Geometric Garden Structures
Pergolas, Gazebos, and Pavilions, oh my!
Keeping with the nature-inspired trends, geometric garden structures are finding their homes where the wild gardens are.
Bespoke Oak Framed Buildings are a perfect way to personalise your outdoor space. Each one is built to be entirely unique, to fit your exact specifications.
From a relaxing sitting area underneath a Gazebo or an ivy-wrapped Pergola, to hosting dinner beneath an extended Pavilion or Veranda, our natural Oak Buildings have you covered.
At Hardwoods Group, we’re getting ready for the summer months, i.e. getting ready to build your Top Garden Ideas of 2023, using Oak of course.
