There’s no doubt that most of us evaluated our homes and gardens in 2020 to see how we could make the most of them. With England in another lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic as we start the new year, it’s little surprise that those of us with gardens will be focusing on getting our outdoor spaces ready for spring.
Bracknell News noted that there are some big gardening trends that are unlikely to diminish in 2021.
Managing director of Inchbald School of Design Andrew Duff told the news provider that he has seen a shift in his clients’ attitudes towards their gardens. “People are seeing the amazing benefits of their space. It’s putting gardens back in our hearts,” he asserted.
As a result, he is expecting many more of us to get excited about the spring and to plant spring-flowering shrubs, especially those like honeysuckle or old English viburnums that have a strong scent as well as beautiful blooms.
He also predicted that more of us are going to be looking at how we can maximise the use we get out of this space. “There’s this new thought that the garden will be used throughout the day, which didn’t really happen before unless you already worked from home,” Mr Duff added.
If you have been struggling to find the peace and quiet you need for work in your house, you may want to consider using log cabin kits to give you a separate home office, or a space where the kids can play without disturbing you.
ABC Money recently shared some suggestions of how to revamp your garden ahead of spring, with some of the ideas including replacing any old wooden decking and creating a beautiful patio space that can be used for entertaining as well as relaxing.
