5 Garden Must-Haves To Check Out This Year
30th June 2022
We are now halfway through 2022 and it is already very clear what is hot and what’s not for the garden. With outdoor space being more valued since lockdown and people becoming more and more interested in gardening let’s take a look at the 5 garden must-haves for this year…
The lighter and warmer evenings make for a great new way to enjoy a film. Outdoor cinemas feel like such a treat, don’t they? And with more projectors, screens and tech coming to market it really couldn’t be easier to quickly set this up in your own back garden. You don’t even need to have a lot of space, a small table for a projector and a place to add a screen and you will soon be enjoying your favourite movie snuggled up in that warm summer air.
An outdoor kitchen has become a popular addition to gardens over the last few years and it is easy to see why. They are often a big focus for garden makeover TV shows with them demonstrating how easy it makes entertaining, how it allows the host to stay within the party without being stuck inside the kitchen, how you can grab your fresh herbs from your garden to use immediately within your cooking and how it creates a hub for all to enjoy.
The increase in popularity of garden rooms has been so significant. Obviously, some of the main reasons include more people now working from home, homeschooling being on the up and the desire to work out in private. Your garden room could be absolutely whatever you need it to be and that is the joy of installing a building like this, it will last you for years to come and will always meet your needs along the way. A garden room is a must-have for any sized garden.
Another result of lockdown was the increase of water features and ponds being built in gardens. People needed some tranquillity in their lives and water can do just that, not only by the sound but by also encouraging more wildlife into your outdoor space. Whether you create a small wildlife pond, have a planter pond, a larger pond in the ground or opt for a trickling water feature, this is a trend that is here to stay!
And the last garden must-have of this year is the fire pit. These have become popular thanks to social media as well as garden shows as they bring a touch of that festival feel, camping and romance to your garden space. These are available in a variety of styles and sizes and are ideal for keeping guests warm, for cosy nights with your other half or for some childish fun with marshmallows!
