Vialii Review of 2019

Tuesday, 31 December 2019

As the teen years near their end and we look forward to the roaring 20s, it’s the perfect time to look at the year just passed and remember the highlights (and some sadder times too.) Here’s the Vialii Review of 2019…

Garden of the Year

Asking us to choose our favourite garden is almost like choosing a favourite child! We love them all! But this year we loved creating the Modern Hot Tub Garden! As the name suggests, the hot tub is the central feature of this garden. But it’s so much more too – from pergolas to patios, garden room to in-built seating this is the perfect space for the whole family to relax in and enjoy.

Plant of the Year

Our favourite plant this year has been Amelanchier canadensis. This shrub (or small tree) is a great addition to any garden and provides interest throughout the year. The spring blossom is really pretty and is followed with dark fruits, great for the birds. In autumn the leaves turn glorious reds and oranges.

Vialii Garden Photo of the Year

This was a hard choice with the teams taking lots of great photos this year but we have chosen our photo of the garden sculpture of the great Mr Vialii as our favourite of this year!

Vialii Social Media Post of the Year

We are all kids at heart and that’s clear by how popular this post was back in February this year! It’s a great way to deal with a sloping garden in a family friendly garden.

Garden Feature of the Year

The contemporary take on a pergola has been a popular choice this year. With more geometric lines, often with extra timbers to provide screening and finished in a modern  white paint, these pergolas give a modern touch to gardens.

We couldn’t review 2019 without paying our respects to Ann Barnes, the much loved mum, mother-in-law and grandma of Vialii. You are missed every single day and our love for you continues to bloom all year round. Starting a new year without you breaks our hearts and you will never be forgotten.

Our beloved mum, missed every day
