Terrace trends 2024

The patio landscape in 2024 presents itself with a variety of innovative trends that combine both functionality and aesthetics. From easy-care materials to smart gardens – here you can find out what the coming season has in store for your patio.

Sustainable and easy-care materials

The trend towards low-maintenance decking continues unabated. WPC planks in particular, a mixture of wood and plastic, are capturing the hearts of many garden lovers. They combine the comfort and timelessness of wood with water-resistant properties and durability. The highlight: WPC boards require minimal maintenance and are a time-saving solution, as they do not need to be impregnated or laboriously cleaned; sweeping or cleaning with water is sufficient in most cases.

However, low-maintenance and sustainable materials are not only becoming increasingly popular in the area of patio coverings, patio furniture should also be more durable and invite you to relax on the patio or balcony for a long time with little maintenance. From recycled plastics to durable wood alternatives such as composites – the choice of environmentally friendly materials is constantly growing. These materials not only offer aesthetic variety, but also lower maintenance and a longer lifespan, making them an attractive choice for environmentally conscious consumers. Tedious sanding and glazing are now a thing of the past.

Edible garden: self-sufficiency on a small and large scale

The trend towards self-sufficiency continues this season. Fresh herbs, vegetable patches and fruit trees are the classics, but there are other ways. Many pretty perennials are not only edible, they also bring a variety of nutrients and bright colors to the menu. Some examples of edible perennials are horned violets, scented nettles, dahlias and curry herb. A variety of berry bushes – such as raspberries and gooseberries, blueberries and sea buckthorn – also offer delicious garden produce.

Water as a design element: a vacation feeling in your own garden

Water creates a real vacation feeling in the garden. Whether pool, pond or fountain – water elements lend the outdoor area an invigorating freshness and invite you to linger. Even in smaller gardens, fountains, fountains or birdbaths can be used to create lively accents.

From green living room to extended living space

The boundaries between indoor and outdoor spaces are becoming increasingly blurred. A flowing transition from the house to the terrace, harmonious floor coverings and high-quality patio furniture transform the outdoor area into a living room in the countryside. Textiles such as cuddly blankets and colorful cushions create a cozy atmosphere that invites you to linger.
With the establishment of the home office, “garden offices” are also becoming increasingly popular. Whether on the terrace, in the cold conservatory or in a separate garden shed – working in a green environment not only offers a relaxed atmosphere, but also an undisturbed workplace in the immediate vicinity of the house.

Bringing dimensions to the garden

The use of height differences, whether through raised terraces or raised beds, gives the garden more structure and size. Patio supports, e.g. on ground impact sleeves, offer a cost-effective alternative for raising the patio without having to carry out costly construction work. For larger height differences, our Vario system offers many options for integrating structures for flower pots, pool surrounds, steps or platforms.

The patio trends 2024 offer a wide range of options for designing your outdoor area in a functional and stylish way. Whether low-maintenance coverings, sustainable materials or the integration of water and greenery – let yourself be inspired and create your own personal outdoor retreat.
