The luxury of having a garden has never been so apparent as this year.
During the lockdown green became the new black; the hot commodity we all were pining after.
When the whole country was in lockdown owing to the coronavirus pandemic, and people were only permitted to leave their house for necessities or to partake in daily exercise, we all wanted the best space to see out the sunny days.
But for those of us that were confined to a flat or had a paved paradise in the form of a tarmacked yard we thought we’d provide you with a virtual gander across the the gorgeous gardens of the rich and famous.
From luscious lawns to fabulous flora, celebrities know a thing or two about keeping stunning outdoor spaces (no doubt with the help of some professional green fingers).
From the Beckham’s spa pool, to Emma Willis’ Narnia-esque views, to Anton Danyluk’s miniature ponies, let’s take a look outside…
Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright
Recently Our Girl actress Michelle shared this snap of her garden to Instagram, writing: “Feeling grateful in the solitude today and finding peace in the silence. Sending love to anyone who needs it right now…What are you grateful for??”
We can see that this would be THE place to seek solitude by her gorgeous pond. The wooden bridge is reminiscent of artist Monet’s bridge over the lilies he so frequently painted. Also the yellow and orange fish are so vibrant in the clear water, and the luscious lawn and fields span off into the horizon.
If there was an award for best celebrity garden it would surely go to Good Morning Britain host Ben Shephard. The star’s outdoor space is immaculate and a true labour of love from him and his wife Annie Perks. From secret enclosures, to vegetable patches, to an allocated gin bench, it is a true oasis.
Victoria and David Beckham
The Beckham family don’t do things by halves and their garden is no exception. Their Cotswolds property has a large expanse of space and includes a tennis court, as well as a plunge pool situated on their sprawling and luscious lawn. Behind Cruz, we can see there is also an Estonian sauna that features a steam room, the ultimate place to recoup!
Former Mis-Teeq singer Alesha took to her back garden recently to bask in the glorious weather, but it left some fans wondering if it was hers or a park owing to its gargantuan size. Aside from having such a large expanse of space, her lawn is also perfectly manicured as are the hedgerows.
Love Island star Anton Danyluk lives in an incredible ranch in Scotland. The fields were where he used to host his bootcamps, but they are now home to two absolutely gorgeous miniature ponies. They live in adjoining stables and we are sure that they are just as happy as Anton on the ranch!
In a recent Twitter spat Piers Morgan shared a snap of his modest London garden to show where he was spending lockdown. He captioned it: "For all those asking, this is the size of my ‘massive f**king garden’ at my London home where I will be for the duration of this crisis. I can only apologise for the ostentatious, luxurious enormity of it."
However, it does seem to be a shame for the Good Morning Britain presenter that he is not at his countryside abode, that is both lavish and enormous. This chic outdoor furniture set looks like a lovely spot to sit and stare out into the misty, unspoiled horizon.
This dreamy photograph of The Circle presenter Emma Willis’ family garden is like something out of Narnia. Their property seems never-ending because of the fields that border it. What a fabulous space for her three kids to run and play in, as well as for hosting barbecues or bonfires, depending on the season.
This Morning presenter Alison Hammond recently gave her garden a complete overhaul, having revamped it completely by herself in lockdown. The star laid two large astroturf lawns into the patio pathing stones. She also added a large palm tree to her garden giving it a tropical feel.
Additionally, Alison has a hot tub to relax in complete with a lid to protect it from getting dirty. It even has a set of steps leading up to it for easy access. The whole space now looks like the ideal location to unwind during lockdown.
Recently on This Morning, Joey showed off his back garden complete with swimming pool, bar and large hot tub. The star has a white seating area by the pool with pink and blue pillows, and it looks just like the Love Island villa. Lockdown really doesn’t seem so bad at his house…
The pool is shaped in a meandering way which makes it not only fun to have, but is also a stylish garden feature. There is a wooden fence and high bushes surrounding the space to give Joey some much needed privacy.
The former glamour model has a ginormous garden with two massive lawns. One is set out as a football pitch for her sons with former Arsenal player Jamie O’Hara to practice on.
The other is a very manicured space with two rows of stylised bushes flanking the green grass. The shrubs are lit with golden light, giving the garden a Tuscan feel on summer nights.
The former TOWIE star’s ‘English Countryside garden’ is blooming with colourful flowers and bursting with life.
The blonde bombshell has cleverly added large mirrors to the space which, aside for making it a great spot for a selfie, also make the flora look more plentiful owing to the reflections.
