5 Garden Trends Set to be Huge in 2021

As 2020 draws to a close, we’re looking ahead to see what garden trends 2021 has in store. 

Bringing the indoors out 

After the heatwave we had this year, people increasingly invested in outdoor furniture to really make the most of their gardens. In 2021, this trend is set to continue with many making much more of their outdoor spaces. Patios extending from the kitchen seamlessly using bi-fold doors is set to be a key trend next year, opening up living spaces and extending the home. 

This open look not only creates additional space but helps to continue the flow of the home into the garden. Indoor interiors like cushions, blankets and other soft furnishings can also be used on patios to create a more seamless effect.

Raised flower beds

If you’re stuck for space or want to create multiple levels in your garden, raised flower beds can be a great option. Stone or wooden sleepers can be used to create the base and container for your planters and then either painted or left for a more natural look.

They can also be tailored to include seating and lighting, making them a real feature in your garden.

Grey Paving 

The grey trend in interiors is set to continue into the garden in 2021 with grey paving set to be a popular choice. Grey is a particularly popular colour because of its versatility. Whether you want sleek and contemporary or rustic and traditional, there’s a vast array of tones and finishes. 

Complimenting pretty much all colour palettes, grey patios can be easily accessorised. Plus, thanks to its versatility, you can overhaul your entire garden theme and still have a base patio that looks great. You can find our full range of grey paving here

White gardens

Yes, you read it right, white foliage and accents are set to be big in 2021. From tulips and roses to Jasmine and Hydrangea, gardeners are brightening up their flower beds with eye-catching, whites. To really set this foliage off, try a dark backdrop, setting them against grey, blue, brown or green fence panels.

Green Zen 

Creating a ‘green balance’ in gardens is going to be a key trend in 2021. Inspired by spirituality and tranquility, this style of garden makes the perfect place to restore your mental balance and feel truly relaxed.  

Ponds, bamboo, secluded seating areas and water features help to create balance and tranquility.
