The 2021 Trend Report from Cision reveals that outdoor living areas are more valuable than ever before. Landscape architects reveal that more and more clients are looking to extend their living spaces outside.

They are hiring professional landscape designers to create outdoor “rooms” or they are turning to garden centers and DIY home improvement stores to reshape their properties themselves.

Top outdoor trends include design elements such as outdoor kitchens, dining areas, and lounges with built-in seating. As well as focal features such as pools and fire pits.
