As consumers emerge from their cocoons, they’re turning their decorating passion to the outside and are spending more money on their gardens and the tools which are necessary to beautify their gardens, according to Unity Marketing. Pam Danziger, president of Unity Marketing and author of Why People Buy Things They Don't Need, predicts Tool and Garden marketers and retailers will enjoy a period of steady growth as consumers increase their decorating focus in the home's interior and the garden, patio and lawn.

"The fastest growing tools and garden category was garden "hardware," i.e. accessories, tools, products, furniture, tools and equipment that enhance the consumers' gardening and home improvement experience, as compared to garden "software," i.e. the plants, seeds, shrubs, trees and other plant material.
More tools and garden consumers are turning to home centers as well as online tools and garden storefronts, such as Home Depot and Lowe's, to make their garden purchases," Danziger says.

Three demographics distinguish the gardening market: Home-owning, middle-aged, affluent, while 80% of all U.S. households bought something for their home improvements, lawn and garden, the prime market for this sector today is middle-aged, affluent home-owners.

The online and offline tools and garden market is increasingly morphing into a luxury market.

Luxury garden purchases for high-end barbecues, luxury patio and pool furniture and decorative garden enhancements, i.e. pools, fountains, and sculptures, were the most widely purchased luxury product, second only to luxury electronics in the latest luxury market survey.
"The big opportunity for tool and garden marketers and retailers is to tap into consumers' growing passion to enhance their enjoyment of the garden by adding luxury accents, furniture, and accessories," Danziger advises.

Increased spending driven by consumers' desire to reconnect with nature, and an aging population, is partly behind the success in tool and garden-related spending. But the real driver for growth is the consumers' passion to reconnect with the natural world and to beautify their homes.

As contemporary American culture becomes more "virtual" computerized and electronic, consumers feel a growing need to ground themselves in the real world, a trend which is finding expression in the home and garden as consumers divide their yards into different "outdoor rooms." They are inviting wildlife, including birds, bats, turtles, frogs and exotic fish, into increasingly elaborate garden getaways where they escape from the modern world and connect with the sounds, smells and sights of nature.
