Beautiful Garden Trends in 2021

August 10, 2021

While we haven’t had the greatest year being stuck at home due to the pandemic, our gardens have gotten more time and attention than ever before. Whether you started a garden during the lockdowns as something to keep yourself occupied or just had spare hours to spend pulling weeds that had built up in your existing garden, many trends have popped up in the gardening world this year. Let’s look at our top three favourites:

Veggie Deluxe

As we mentioned in our previous blog, growing vegetables has become a huge hit. With so much extra time spent at home, many homeowners have developed a green thumb and are looking to grow something that not only tastes great but can help keep the grocery budget down.

Raised Garden Beds

Raised gardens take the benefits of a humble garden and make them more accessible for our poor knees. They also tend to look more polished and tidier, while keeping your garden in a small, manageable area.

The soil in raised beds warms up quicker than ground soil, meaning you can get a head start on some delicious and beautiful cool-weather crops. Because raised beds are created and filled with fresh soil, you can garden almost anywhere if you have the right sun, shade, and temperature for what you plant…not to mention pulling weeds is much easier.

From Backyard Garden to Outdoor Living Space

With travel having been off the table for many of us, money that was once spent on vacation is now being used to create our very own backyard oasis. Being stuck at home base for so long is making many homeowners see the value of their backyards. While gardens still play a big role, many are now using them as landscaping to create atmosphere for an outdoor dining area, family fire pit, pool, or gathering place instead of as the main attraction (hint…find firepits here: https://dragonflylandscape.ca/product-category/fire-pits/).

Gardens themed after your favourite far-off getaway are increasingly popular because they offer a way to ‘travel’ to destinations you are missing, without leaving the comfort and safety of home. You can also up your outdoor décor game with shade coverings, canopies, and gazebos. They extend your living space and provide much-needed shelter from the hot summer sun. That means more time outside enjoying your gardens!

There is no wrong way to garden. It’s more about what works for your home, style, and preference. For more inspiration, or tips on how to get started, stop by Dragonfly Landscape Supply today. There is nothing our team loves more than helping you create an outdoor space you can enjoy all season and for years to come.
