With these tips, you can turn your outdoor area into a chic and useful refuge for entertaining.

Who doesn’t want a fantastic space for outdoor entertaining? Whether you want a fun BBQ setup, a cozy fire pit for summer nights, or a play zone for the kids, creating a smart layout in your backyard is essential. A carefully thought-out landscape design significantly improves outdoor experiences. With these tips, you can turn your outdoor area into a chic and useful refuge for hosting special events.

How Will You Use the Space?

First, you must determine how you want to use your space. Do you want your backyard to be a space for happy hour drinks or a game area for kids? Are family dinner nights important to you, or do you like hosting outdoor movie nights for your friends? Determine which uses of your backyard are a priority and focus on that to design your space. Landscape design is not a one-size-fits-all, and you’ll need to decide what matters most to include in the plan.

Create Zones in Your Landscape

Designing your outdoor space like you would indoor rooms helps to designate comfortable zones in your landscaping. Defining those zones can be as simple as planting a few shrubs to divide the lawn. You can also build out various featured areas, such as water or hardscape details, in your landscape to help create those zones.

Build the Perfect Dining Area

A deck or level patio is the perfect place to set up a dining table, a grilling area, or a circle of chairs around a fire pit. These spaces are separate from the rest of your lawn and garden while providing beautiful views of your landscape. Making the most of a backyard deck or living space can increase the time you use your outdoor space.

Gazebos, pergolas, and pavilions are a wise way to create a cozy, defined space while still being outdoors. They can even protect from the elements, providing shade and some overhead protection from rain while dining.

Don’t Forget the Furniture

A warm, functional entertainment area must have comfortable seating and carefully chosen outdoor furnishings. Many materials, like wood, wicker, and metal, are available, as well as furniture that matches your aesthetic and geographic region. You’ll also need some linens and cushions for enhanced comfort and style. Outdoor seating is the least you can do to make guests comfortable. It doesn’t cost much, and visitors get to gush about the relaxed atmosphere.
