Trends in Landscaping For 2021

2020 for many was a year thatsaw some impressive transformations of homes, gardens, and yards. Lockdown turned us into our own DIY geniuses with anuntamable need to rip, strip, sand, and pot everything, but is the same verve still on the cards for 2021? 

Certainly for landscaping there are no signs ofslowing down, with designs and trends already in mind for what we are going to see this year. So, with that being said, let us take a look at the styles we are set to see in the garden this year! 

Emphasis on Relaxation 

While we are well on our way to seeing the light at the end of the COVID tunnel, there is a high probability that staycations will be the most popular (and allowed) choice this summer, which means having our own oasis in our back yard is a very worthwhile investment. If you did not manage to hop on the renovation trend last year, there is still time to transform our yards from a home for broken wheelbarrows or the shed that has been usable for at least 5 years – it is the perfect time to have a clear out and create a wonderful haven from the stress of the World.

Once you have a blank canvas to work with, you can choose to do as little or as much as you want to, while creating your new idyllic space. Think big ‘garden cushions’, swinging chairs, day beds, cozy blankets, and anything else that can make you feel as comfortable as possible. 

Split Level Yards 

While split level yards are not anything new, it is suggested that they will be taking the center stage when it comes to outside renovations this year. Split level yards are great, because not only do they give garden lovers the option to create different platforms for different activities, such as growing a vegetable patch or having a seating area, but they also give you the chance to play with separate materials and dynamics while making the whole space look put together. If you are going to opt for a drastic change, but want to do it yourself, then make sure you get professional landscape materials and some advice! 

Flower Power 

Using nature to help nature is probably the best idea humans have had in a while, which is why this yard trend is definitely a winner. Not only is it a beautiful style, but the wild abandon of some specific flowers is really great for the bees and other pollinating insects.
Wildflowers that are great for bees include field poppies, cornflowers, marigold, and chamomile, and they all look stunning together. Herbs are also great for our pollinating friends, such as mint, fennel, marjoram, chives, rosemary, and sage to name a few! You do not have to let your back yard look like a wild meadow if you would prefer it to be more contained – Just invest in some large plant pots or some raised beds to keep your wild and natural design a little more manageable!
