It’s that time of year again when everyone is craving a bit of outdoor time, especially if you’ve been sticking to the stay-at-home orders that many states have in place due to the pandemic.

5 Garden Trends For 2021

Garden Spaces for Relaxation

Gardens are the perfect place for relaxation, and many of us are even finding they’re the perfect place for working too then the weather is good!

If you’re lucky enough to have a garden space or even a balcony space, there are plenty of things you can do to brighten the area up, and these five options are bang on trend in 2021!

Outdoor Living Areas

As much as a global pandemic is never seen as a ‘benefit’ to humanity, there HAVE been some upsides to this horrific situation, and one of those upsides is more people working from home.

If you’ve spent the last year or so working from home, you might be wondering how you can spend more time working outside as well as at home?

Now is the time to consult experts like to get your outside living areas up to scratch and ready for you to enjoy while you’re working hard. That could include garden rooms, outdoor furniture, nice decking, and even outdoor electricity options to keep that laptop powered all day.

Vertical Gardening

Many people lack the space for a big sprawling garden, houses are getting smaller, and garden space is becoming a bit of a luxury. This is why vertical gardening has become so popular in recent years, using all available space to grow the things you love.

You can do vertical gardening with all kinds of flowers, and there are many fruits and veg that can be adapted to trail along trellises or over archways too.

Neat Raised Beds

The grow your own craze has been popular for the last few years, but in 2020 we saw a HUGE take-up of home growing because more people were spending time at home.

One of the trends that will continue to grow in 2021 (pun fully intended) is the love of raised beds. These neat beds are perfect for veg and even for flowers, allowing a separation between the grass and growing areas to make your garden look more like a garden and less like an allotment!

Charming Traditional Gardens 

Cottage gardens have been all the rage for the last few months as more people strive for that quaint, relaxing look of lovely garden space.

Rose bushes, herb gardens, and shrubbery make for a great place to sit and watch the world go by, or to work if that’s what you’d prefer!


Don’t have the room to do lots of gardening but want to give it a go? Why not try micro gardening! 

Container gardening on balconies and even potted microgreens on windowsills can help to brighten up the place. There is even plenty of fruit and veg, like chilli plants and tomato plants, that don’t mind being confined to a container and will grow perfectly well in small pots on a sunny windowsill.
