5 Landscaping Trends To Look Out For In 2021

Creating a seamless flow between indoor and outdoor living spaces is the ideal for many Australians, as we try to make the most out of our gardens all year round. Here, we’ll take you through five landscaping trends you can expect to see in 2021, so you can get a head-start on the garden of your dreams.

Trend 2: Curved Walls

Instantly creating softness, curves play a role in the biophilic design trend that seeks to incorporate nature into our built environment. Curves are aesthetically appealing within architecture, influencing our emotions and how we feel. Appropriate for all forms of architectural and interior styles, curves create a bespoke piece of architecture that can be customised to embrace its beauty. Fluid design creates a point of interest to a landscapes aesthetic with curves often designed to soften the impact of a building, helping it meld into the surrounding landscape.

Trend 3: Courtyards

Inner-city living has led our gardens to slowly shrink with courtyards, patio balconies and front yards utilised as an opportunity to maximise the outdoor space available to you. Even the smallest of outdoor spaces can be transformed into a beautiful oasis. You can create a tranquil garden to escape to by utilising vertical space with GB Masonry Wedge Breeze Blocks to add a sense of natural light and air flow into the area. Garden pebbles and crazy pavers are not only low maintenance, but bring texture and contrast to the area. Inserting spaces between pavers allows grass to grow, softening its surrounds with lush greens.

Trend 4: Pathways

Incorporating pavers and bricks into your landscape design creates an unexpected visual appeal that adds texture, warmth and impact to a space. Slimline brick paving can give an outdoor space not only added interest, but a unique perspective. Garden pathways are functional elements and can certainly be more than just a bland concrete slab connecting to your home. Garden pathways are not only a great way to make a statement, but they essentially keep your feet out of the mud, and the grass undamaged.

Trend 5: Pavers

Pavers are a great surface for any outdoor area. Australian backyards need to be able to withstand extreme climates, and pavers are the perfect means to create a space that withstands the weather and requires little to no maintenance. This is particularly important when landscaping a pool area, as the pavers need to be able to withstand exposure to salt, chlorine and other chemicals. For a super durable and non-slip paver I would suggest using a Keope porcelain tile, which are extremely high-performance whilst creating an incredible visual impact in landscaping applications.

Trend 1: Inside Out with a Seamless Transition

Creating flow between your inside and outdoor space is a great way to create the illusion of an even bigger space within your home. Australians love living and entertaining outdoors so creating an expressive link between the two spaces is a must. The biggest prerequisite in achieving this look and feel is to open up your indoor living space where the use of full height sliding or folding glass panels, allowing you to completely open up your interior to your exterior living spaces. Your outdoor living space should feel like an extension of your home so the pair must work in harmony.
