Focal themes 2018


Creating a big impact in a small space

High land prices, urbanisation and high-density construction: these are the challenges facing today’s architects and garden designers. Whether on plots of land in an urban environment, on hillside locations or in petite city and niche gardens, customers all want the same thing: their own garden that meets a wide variety of needs. 

Giardina 2018 gives you the opportunity to show how clever planning and efficient use of space can help make garden dreams – including cosy patios, kitchen gardens, water features and wellness zones – come true in even the smallest of spaces.


Outdoor furnishings– Living in the garden

While celebrating comfort and design has become a well-established trend in interior spaces, the same attention is not yet given to outdoor spaces. 

This is the topic Giardina will be focusing on in its 20th year. It invites you to present gardens, terraces and balconies whose clever layout and decoration turn them into valuable living spaces. 
Stylish and functional outdoor living zones can be created in harmony with the overall design to let users experience and enjoy the beauties of nature day in, day out, all year round – regardless of the season – in a way that matches their personal lifestyle.
