Uplift your garden with these top outdoor trends

I wish I could count the days until the weather is sunny and warm again. However, the English weather is so unpredictable that we can’t even do that. I just want to enjoy my outdoor space again and with summer almost here, I want to make it look its best. I can’t wait to invite my family over for our summer barbecues and alfresco Sunday roasts.

Although the weather doesn’t allow for us to be outside yet, we can start thinking about how we are going to give our gardens a good spruce up, so our outdoor spaces are as ready as they can be to welcome our guests this summer. Today, I’ve partnered up with Designer Shade Solutions, outdoor shading specialists, who are going to share with us some ideas to uplift your outdoors.

Indoors outdoors.

Create a seamless transition from your indoor living to outdoor living with retractable roofs in Sydney Australia by Designer Shade Solutions. The team at Designer Shade Solutions says that the lines between indoor living and outdoor living are slowly disappearing with their modern pergolas.

These stylish and practical pergolas feature retractable roofs, something that makes them stand out from their traditional counterparts. If the weather is bad, the roof can be closed, if the weather starts to be better, the roof can open and it can also tilt to offer some shade. As Sparkles and Stretchmarks comments, “Imagine having an outdoor retreat in your garden that offered the comfort of an indoor space but still allowed you to experience the outdoors – that’s what a retractable louvered pergola can do.”

Multi-functional spaces.

After so many months at home, we started to look at our dwellings in a different light. Functionality and liveability are on the top of everyone’s list. As Homes to Love mentions, “no longer is the backyard just a place to hang the washing, instead think of your outdoor area as an extension of your living space and style accordingly.” This might mean a fully equipped outdoor kitchen, weatherproof garden furniture or simply an outdoor dining space with heating and lighting that can be used year-round.

Edible gardens.

Janine Huldie mentions that “edible gardens and vegetable patches are making a comeback.” And I couldn’t agree more. Whether it was the lockdown that made us find new ways to keep busy or the simple fact that we want fresh and delicious ingredients in our cooking, a lot of us have turned into home-grown veggies and herbs and we are not going back to store bought ones!

Welcome wildlife.

Birds, squirrels, hedgehogs are other wildlife like to come by our gardens and we love to watch them. What better way to greet them than to add some bird feeders or perhaps a water pond, so they have food and water? As this blog post on Luxirare mentions, “It’s important to give them a helping hand during cold days to ensure they have everything they need to thrive and survive, including food and water.”
