Cool Entertainment Zone
Now that it’s coming up to spring, we all want a back garden that we can sit back, relax and entertain in throughout the summer months. Backyards aren’t just a place to grow pretty flowers and plants – it’s an extension of our personalities and living space. So if you want to know exactly how to make the most of your outdoor living area, then read through this helpful guide.
# Create a Comfortable Seating Area
If socializing is top of your priorities when it comes to outdoor entertainment, then you’re going to want to create a comfortable zone where people can sit and chat at ease. Think about where you want to locate your garden furniture.
Placing a table at a corner or to the side is a better idea than the middle, as it leaves room for guests to walk around and mingle. A circular seating area is a great idea, as it makes for more of an intimate seating arrangement. Add to the ambience with colourful cushions and hanging flower pots.
# Consider Your Layout
If you’re not sure how to design your own garden, it’s a good idea to contact local specialists. Have a look online for gardening landscaping services, as their experts will be able to give you advice on how you can best utilise the space in your backyard. They will also be able to install patios, pavilions, and even outdoor kitchen appliances.
# Decide on Entertainment Features

There are so many ways to be inventive, from turning your lawn into a putting green, to creating the ultimate barbeque al fresco dining area. Think about outlining a budget before you begin and remember to factor in the size and shape of your garden.
# Garden lighting ideas
It doesn’t matter how beautiful your garden is, if the appropriate lighting isn’t there, then there’s no way to enjoy it come the evening. There are a number of creative ways to light up your garden, depending on what kind of atmosphere you want to create. From illuminating paths to lighting up your water features, garden lighting is so important in adding some ambience. For entertaining guests into the small hours, fairy lights are perfect for creating a soft, relaxed ambience.
Using solar powered garden lights will keep your wallet happy. You could even replace light bulbs in antique crystal chandeliers with LED bulbs. Hang the chandelier from a tree and watch it magically illuminate your garden.
# Play With Proportion
Make use of mirrors in your garden.Not only are they a great way to create the illusion of a larger space, but they also attract light and give your garden a polished and creative feel. You could create your own by upcycling an old picture frame and adding a panel of glass.
