Haven’t we all grown closer to our gardens during this year? And if not already, you should. Spending time in the garden, as proven by studies, improves your physical and mental wellbeing. This proves gardening to be one of the best forms of engagement, especially when you have plenty of time.
From painting the boundary fence to setting up a piano garden, there are tons of things you can do with your green area. To make your garden a little more interesting in 2021, here are some of the most notable trends that you can follow.
Get A Butterfly Sanctuary
If you are on a low budget, then this one’s for you; build a butterfly sanctuary and paint it white. It gives your garden a centre of attention – an ultimate favourite spot for everyone. If you have a small hexagonal shaped sanctuary with the plants as per your taste, then your ordinary is at its best. Moreover, if you grow spines on one side of the garden, create a plant wall on the opposite side; the perfect duo.
Set up a Vertical Garden
You may not have one of those big, spacious gardens where you could probably build another home. But that doesn’t mean you have to give up on your passion for gardening. Instead, switch to vertical gardening. It’s on its way to being one of the trendiest gardening practices for 2021.
You can use strong portable trellis for your vertical gardens as it will help you easily switch its location for the best place for daily sunlight. You can also use upside-down planters or hanging baskets but choose their location wisely; keep the space practical and clutter-free.
Grow Morbid Roses
Morbid roses are a must-have for 2021. They are the perfect deviation your garden needs in this new year. Morbid roses are quite different from the traditional roses in colour and even in their size. They’ll surely get more attention than any other plant species in your garden and may even be an entirely new variation for most.
Adopt A Small Yet Lavish Look
For those with small gardens, not all is lost. It may be small, but it can still be extremely trendy. For example, you can paint the walls of your garden in white or other bright colours to trap natural sunlight, creating a much brighter space. Use suitable climber plants to give a combination of a lavish garden look. If space allows, installing tall trees in the corners of the garden can be the cherry on top. Moreover, including all water feature can further enhance that extravagant aspect. Artificial grass combined with flower pots or cactus can also compliment a small yet greener space.
Grow Your Veggies
Utilise your garden for growing fruits and vegetables for your family. Salad leaves, radishes, peas, spring onion, broad beans, runner beans, and garlic are some of the plant crops you can grow at your home, all of which are very easy to look after. If you often use fresh produce in your home cooking, for example, if you make a lot of salads, then take the fresh veggies right from your garden.
Every year brings a chance to be better and more accomplished. In 2021, let’s take this chance to become a better gardener. Engage yourself and your family in gardening and enjoy quality time surrounded by nature.
