Maximizing garden space is number one on the list. Lauren shares that the majority of us are slowly returning to our busy lifestyles, and cultivating a smart, small garden will be an important landscaping trend in 2022 as an act of self-care. Pat from Stouffville Mobile Redimix agrees, “creating a garden space is not just to beautify the landscape. For years, many have used gardening as a form of self-care and relaxation. It is no secret that caring for plants offers therapeutic benefits and can significantly improve ones well being. Therefore, it’s easy to see why this trend will continue into 2022. The great thing about gardening or creating a garden is that it is not limited to the size of a landscape. You can choose a few potted plants to decorate a concrete patio, small garden beds with a few arrangements, or large garden beds with various plants and floral arrangements. Alternatively, the addition of a built-in redimix concrete planter or raised garden bed can be incorporated into any landscape regardless of size or design. As the article mentions, a raised bed is a great way to add plants without permanently changing the landscape.” 


At number two, Lauren highlights the interest in kitchen gardens will continue. Pat from Stouffville Mobile Redimix agrees, “it is no surprise that there is a continued interest in kitchen gardens or vegetable gardens. The past few years have encouraged many to grow produce for their pantry. Some have even grown produce to share with neighbors, and a good handful has turned their kitchen garden into a side business. It’s a good idea to incorporate built-in redimix

concrete planters or raised garden beds whether you are using the garden for your kitchen table or for profit. Redimix concrete planters or raised garden beds will help keep wildlife from eating up your garden plants. It will also protect your produce from harsh landscaping chemicals. As you grow a kitchen garden, it is also beneficial to order mobile redimix concrete to create pathways and walkways. Concrete poured pathways and walkways will enhance the appearance of any landscape and provide a safe way for you to navigate from one area to another. Therefore, making gardening and harvesting much easier.”


Lauren shares the pandemic has led individuals to reassess their homes’ air quality, health, and

environmental impact. Pat from Stouffville Mobile Redimix shares, “there is no doubt that over the past few years, many homeowners have developed more eco-friendly practices. We saw this particularly with the no grass-trend or low water plan system. There were various reasons why homeowners chose to incorporate a poured concrete landscape. One of which included the conscious decision to reduce the amount of water used to maintain their yards. We predict this trend will continue for many years.”


Listed at number four are pet-friendly upgrades. As a result of the pandemic, many have increased the amount of time spent with their animals or have brought home new pet additions. Therefore, making adjustments to support a pet-friendly environment is rising. Such as adding synthetic turf to assist with potty training. Pat from Stouffville Mobile Redimix shares, “incorporating synthetic turf is not uncommon. Especially for those with redimix concrete landscapes. Pet owners bring in synthetic turf to help with outdoor bathroom needs, and homeowners with young children use synthetic turf to create a play area.”


Lastly, further investments to create outdoor entertaining spaces will continue in 2022. Pat from Stouffville Mobile Redimix agrees, “encouraged outdoor gatherings and restrictions on various amenities have caused a surge of outdoor living and entertaining spaces. Redimix concrete patios, pools, hot tubs, fully-equipped outdoor kitchens, and lounge areas were on everyone’s to-do list. The comfort, convenience, and aesthetic appeal many homeowners have experienced will influence others to do the same in the future.”
