The great outdoors!

A whole new level

No matter what the season; taking the time to enjoy our gardens has become a ritual for most of us. More often than not, the garden has become our favorite place to re-connect with ourselves after a long day, celebrate our kid’s birthdays, marvel at the nature that surrounds us, and enjoy a good barbecue with family and friends. Keeping these things in mind; we want to mention a few must have elements that every garden should include for maximum enjoyment. Take a read, and try something out!

If you’re planning a garden get together then the third element of the universe is a must have! Since caveman times fire has acted as an important point for human gathering. It not only adds aesthetic beauty, but it's also a practical way to keep warm on cooler nights or cook up your favorite treats! Whether you’ve set your sights on a classic bonfire pit, floating Tiki torches, portable fire units, or a traditional outdoor fireplace, this powerful element cannot be passed up! Which manifestation is right for you? Here is a little questionnaire to help you determine that. How often do you entertain? Do you have children or animals? What is your budget? What is the main purpose of your space? Is your favorite garden at your regular residence, vacation house or both? All of these factors play into how you choose to display this element. If you're still not sure, then take a visit to your local garden or D.I.Y center. Consult with the experts there, they’ll help you make an informed decision.

The right choice

These days throwing away your garden furniture at the end of the summer is not an option; that’s why choosing the right materials for your garden is just as important as picking out the pieces themselves. So how do you know which materials are right for you? It doesn’t matter if you’re going for a minimalistic, bohemian chic or pure country look and feel; durable, eco-friendly and weather resistant materials should be at the top of your list. These materials can manifest themselves in the form of aluminum framed stools and sofas, recycled plastics in the form of flower boxes and lounge chairs and UV resistant fabrics for cushion covers and accent pillows. No matter what shape, size, or color they come in; these materials are created to last!

Eternal Sun  

Using exterior lighting not only provides additional safety and security to your property, it also ensure that you can enjoy your garden long after the sun has gone down; and isn’t that what summer nights are all about!  Adding lighting to statement items such as a pool, barbecue pit or outdoor bar can add ambiance galore to your backyard. However, choosing smaller more centralized lighting elements such table lanterns, door sconces, or string lighting ensures a more intimate feel for your outdoor entertaining. Inviting light into your life has never been easier!
