As the largest garden show in the world, the traditional trade fair, spoga+gafa, presents the new products of the global green industry in Cologne every year. The focus here is on fresh ideas and pioneering garden lifestyle solutions. Due to the pandemic a gaping emptiness currently prevails where the DIY stores, garden centres, specialised barbecue dealers and furniture stores from all over the globe usually purchase their seasonal products - in the fourteen exhibition halls that are normally full of garden items. And yet, themes like garden work, closeness to nature or sustainability particularly gain significance in times like these. One's own spot outdoors serves as a place of retreat more than ever. People are investing in beautifying their garden, terrace or balcony instead of in their annual holiday. The global pandemic is thus causing a boom in the garden industry. And in this way trends and new products are finding their way to the own outdoor spaces of the people even in these times. The offer ranges from comfortable outdoor furniture, to smart garden appliances, through to fully-equipped outdoor kitchens – a glance at the current garden lifestyle trends and themes.
