Are you thinking of how you can make the most of your outdoor space this Spring/Summer? As many of us will be planning staycations for our holidays this year, it’s important that our gardens are all set to provide us with a relaxing environment to enjoy our time outdoors with family and friends. There are many ways in which you can get revive your space, here are some massive garden trends for 2021.
Benches are a great way of making the most of your outdoor space when you have guests over. As we will be spending lots more time with our loved ones in our gardens, benches are a great way to get creative with your outdoor seating area.
Benches come in all shapes and sizes, with lots of different styles available, it can be difficult to decide which to choose. A current trend is the sofa bench - with large cushions for extra comfort and a solid, sturdy base, you’ll love inviting guests over for to relax and socialise in your garden.
Another point to consider is the positioning of your seating area and the direction in which the sun rises in sets in your garden. You may want to position your seating in a prime location to soak up as much sun as possible! Real grass over time can become dry and damaged if covered up by seating and not getting enough sunlight. Artificial grass is not affected by sunlight, making it a perfect choice to ensure your chill out zone is always looking it’s best.
With lots of alfresco parties planned this summer, many of us are preparing to entertain in our gardens by investing in a BBQ!
Hosting a BBQ is a fantastic way to get together with your family and friends outdoors to make the most of the sunshine. Whatever style BBQ you have, installing artificial grass is a great choice for your outdoor space as it means your garden will be weed free, you won’t have to worry about doing any gardening for long, overgrown weeds which have gathered around a BBQ that hasn’t been used for a while, allowing it be easily accessed on the go. You don’t have to cut artificial grass, meaning your lawn will be BBQ ready at any time.
Kids Play Area
Families are preparing to keep their young ones entertained during the summer holidays and are investing in play areas within their outdoor spaces.
There are many different options to choose from when it comes to creating a fun and safe environment for your little ones to play in. Your play area may include football goals, trampolines or paddling pools. Having artificial grass in your garden will provide a soft and durable surface, perfect for outdoor activities and ensuring that your youngsters have extra protection from hurting themselves if they take a tumble.
An ideal artificial grass for a kids play area would be our Constellation 40mm, this grass has a very high dtex which means it is extremely durable and hard wearing. It features a straight, super soft yarn which is smooth to run your hands through, making it a suitable choice for any busy family garden.
Garden trends for 2021
With summer just around the corner and the introduction of rule of six for outdoor gatherings this Spring, we can all look forward to having guests over to socialise in our gardens again.
A massive trend for gardens in 2021 is the Firepit. It can get a little chilly when the sun goes down in the evening and you want to continue having fun in the garden with your friends and family. Firepits allow you to cosy up around the fire and enjoy spending time with loved ones without feeling too cold. Create the ultimate festival ambience with artificial grass in your garden. It’s soft texture is just perfect for sitting on around the fire.
Many of us are creating a holiday atmosphere in our own gardens this summer and the Jacuzzi trend is on the rise!
With staycations being the most popular on the cards for holidays this year, having a hot tub in your outdoor space is a perfect way to unwind and relax. If you are considering getting a Jacuzzi, installing artificial grass in your garden will enhance your pampering experience by having a soft surface under your feet as you get in and out of the tub!
Unlike a traditional lawn which is affected by lack of sunlight and general wear and tear from moving garden furniture around, artificial grass will not suffer any damage from your hot tub being in your outdoor space. Artificial grass has efficient drainage for any water spillages too, meaning there will be no muddy puddles in your garden to ruin the mood.
