Outside Spaces: Top Trends For 2021

In April 2020, we had no idea what was about to happen to the rest of our year. We never imagined we’d be going through what we’ve been through, and without a single moment to prepare. We’ve struggled through rough times, boring times and lazy times. However, there are definitely a few positives to have come out of the unforeseen; we’ve really been able to appreciate our outside spaces and had the time to understand our personal outside areas.
