The summer is when your garden comes to life, and it’s the perfect time to invite friends round for a coffee or a catch up over a few glasses of wine.
The patio or decked area gives you the perfect place to entertain guests, especially if you have a table and chair set to accommodate all of them. If you are inviting friends over for more of a relaxed, informal barbeque, rustic teak furniture such as teak benches are a great buy, especially if you don’t have room to accommodate all your guests around the table. If you have a gathering of close friends, everyone can join in the conversation by sitting on strategically placed benches and chairs, this makes the environment feel welcoming and relaxed.
The patio area isn’t the only part of the garden where you can entertain. If you have a summer house, this is a great place for entertaining if you only have a couple of friends over. If it’s a mum’s lunch, you may want to sit outside on the decked area while the children play in the summer house or on the grass. The summer house is also an ideal place for the dads to have a beer and a catch-up with their friends over the weekend.
If you have a terraced garden, you can make your garden really attractive with hideaway seating – for example rustic teak furniture such as chairs and benches can be placed in the most beautiful spots in the garden. Your seating area may be in front of your flower bed that makes you feel so proud, or in front of your garden water feature which makes you feel at peace every time you see it.
