The weathers improving, so you may already have started to be on the lookout for the latest garden trends for this year. We have been analysing the most recent trends which we think will continue to dominate in 2021. Read our latest blog to uncover these latest trends.


Garden Rooms
A garden room building is a stylish addition to your garden, an extension of you home interior AND a way to improve your lifestyle. Garden rooms will be, on average, larger and more substantial than the delicate and smaller structure of previous years. Garden rooms will be used by many as home offices and creative retreats, which call for a more permanent and well insulated structure.  They can be cladded in composite or wood – materials that are available at Spinks to help you build your garden room.

Grey Gardens
Grey has been a popular colour for home interiors over the past few years and now its made its way into the garden! Incorporating this trend into your garden is easy! Consider grey furniture or planters, painting your fence to create a stunning backdrop, or create borders using grey slate or gravel.


Balcony Gardening
A balcony maybe a small space, but that doesn’t mean you can’t create a stunning outside area for socialising and relaxing in.

With #balconygardening having 96k posts on Instagram, you’ll be sure to find some inspo!  It’s a huge trend this year, especially in more urban areas. Consider using some funky planters, and some outdoor furniture.


Outdoor living
The pandemic forced many of us to spend much more time outdoors last year, and we see that trend continuing. This trend is all about creating a inside living look but outdoor in your garden, where the garden naturally begins to feel as an extension of your home. To create that flow you can create a space which using decking areas, stunning paving, and outdoor furniture / socialising areas.

Raised Flower Beds
Raised flowerbeds can be created using concrete blocks, timber or galvanised steel and create a trendy design feature in any garden. Raised flower beds have been around a long time, but we will see them continue to trend in 2021. As well as looking great, you can plant anything in them and you are less likely to get lots on annoying weeds.
