Green living : welcome to a new season

17/03/2021 By HC

Tomorrow is officially the last day of Winter. We are welcoming Spring this year with open arms then as soon as the sun rises on Sunday. This year promises to hold a lot more quality outdoor living after the lessons 2020 taught us all. With lockdown came a lot of positives and a shift in priorities and perspectives. 2021 promises to be the year of homes & gardens. In a bid to get ahead of the game we are going to share a whole season of inspiration here with you in tandem with a parallel timeline of what was happening when we were all experiencing unprecedented times last year.

So here is a snapshot of our focus for the forthcoming season…
