6 Garden Trends For 2021
Looking to give your garden a bit of a revamp? You don’t have to be a gardening expert to create a beautiful space. All of these garden trends are simple and easy, so let’s take a look.
1 . Embrace the natural look
The trendy thing to do right now is to let your garden grow a bit wild! It’s not about neglecting the space, but just letting the grass and plants do their thing. Gardeners are planting flowers to bring wildlife into their space. If you want a garden that’s bursting with butterflies, try planting Echinacea, lavender, Buddleja, or Sedum.
2. ‘Indoor’ furniture
We’re doing away with the garden furniture of the past and embracing luxurious styles that look pretty much exactly like indoor furniture. Creating a ‘room outside’ is the done thing in 2021. You’ll want soft and large corner sofas, oversized garden rugs, and plenty of cushions and throws. Add plenty of accessories to make the space your own and remember to choose a color scheme that you love.
3. It’s all about the egg chairs
Egg chairs are so this season, as the name suggests these are single egg-shaped chairs, (like hanging pods). Egg chairs are the perfect way to give your garden a quirky and modern look. There’s no better place to read a book or sip a cheeky glass of wine. You don’t have to blow the budget to get one of these, you can buy egg chairs at a range of prices, from budget to luxury.
4. Circular shaped lawns
Want to give your lawn a touch of style? Circular-shaped lawns are a great look. You can have a go at shaping your lawn yourself, (or call in the experts if you’re not sure what you’re doing)! When it comes to looking after your lawn you’ll need to mow your grass often and ensure that your lawn gets plenty of water and lawn feed. You should rake your lawn every once in a while to get rid of the debris and improve the drainage.
5. Garden offices
Been working from home this year? With a garden office, you can give yourself the garden space that you deserve. These are similar to sheds or summer houses, only they are purpose-built as a designated office space. You can have garden offices built in a range of styles and designs, and decorate them to your taste. Having your own home office space is the best way to boost your productivity. There are plenty of ways to improve your backyard.
6. Elaborate bird baths
Want to attract more birds into your garden? Birdbaths are a great way to do this, plus they look pretty fabulous. You can get some pretty elaborate birdbaths in various styles, most larger bird baths resemble statues. If you’re looking for something simple, pedestal bird baths can give your garden an elegant look.
While you’re improving your garden take a look at your maintenance chores outside. Around this time of year, it’s a good idea to inspect your roofing and guttering. When it comes to guttering, cleaning eavestroughs can be dangerous if you’re not trained. It’s best to call in a professional gutter cleaning service to help with this job.
