The UK domestic landscaping materials market increased by around 2% in 2016. Key product sectors in the market are horticulture, hard landscaping and garden decoration. The weather is a key influence on annual growth rates in the marketplace, and the economy also has a significant impact on the performance of the market with higher value projects likely to be put on hold during times of economic uncertainty when disposable incomes are stretched. The market has experienced steady underlying growth over the last 2-3 years as consumers continue to invest in their gardens by updating or upgrading outdoor areas with more modern décor schemes.
There is also a trend towards stylish design, with the décor viewed as a reflection of the home decoration and an opportunity to reflect individual personality. At the same time, low maintenance is also a dominant trend, exemplified by the recent growth for artificial turf. Besides the weather and the economy, consumer lifestyle choices can also impact significantly upon the size of the market with recent trends including 'grow-your-own', the continuing trend for al-fresco dining and entertaining as well as the recent focus on the garden as an outdoor living space.
The domestic landscaping market is heavily reliant on imported products, particularly decorative items and a significant proportion of horticultural products. Fluctuations in Sterling exchange rates during 2016 have had some impact on the market as the price of imports increased. Distribution of landscaping materials is fragmented, and online sales continue to increase, with the emergence of dedicated garden specialists, as well as generalists. Many of the traditional 'bricks and mortar' channels now have a strong online presence and have adopted an 'omni-channel' approach.
Into the medium-term, the domestic garden landscaping materials market will show steady, if modest, underlying growth until 2021. The market has been positive in Q1 2017 with good spring weather encouraging gardeners and home owners to venture into their gardens and update and renew planting and landscaping schemes. The outlook for 2018 and beyond is for steady growth, underpinned by sustained demand for key repeat purchase products - e.g. bedding plants - but with an element of price inflation from imported products such as planters, pots and decorative items. A key factor in the future health of the UK domestic garden landscaping materials market remains the British weather, which can have significant impact on the strength of the market within a given year.
