Four Ways To Create A Social Garden

There are a number of reasons why socialising in garden spaces is becoming more popular. Froogle minded residents are looking to save money without compromising the dining out experience, culinary creatives want to host guests closer to their homegrown vegetables, and a post-pandemic landscape is encouraging friends to socialise in private spaces. As a result, gardens are being designed with new priorities in mind. Less space is being dedicated to flower beds and far more is going toward creating a social space within their homes.

To help you create the ideal social space, one that is both exciting and comfortable, or to inspire your next garden renovation, here are four ways to create a truly social garden.

1) Bring The Indoors Out

Relaxing in a garden can sometimes be difficult, not only because garden furniture isn’t always as accommodating as a comfy sofa but also because the weather can quickly affect guests’ comfort. A great way to solve both of these issues is to bring your indoor design outdoors. 

This is achieved by ensuring that furniture is cosy and stylish, as well as being accompanied by decadent assets such as rugs and blankets, which help people to relax as if they were at home themselves. Additionally, care should be given to cover and protect such an area from the effects of weather. Heat lamps, for example, are a great way to ensure your outdoor living room is cosy throughout the evening.

2) Ensure The Seats

Whether you are dining at a table, reclining for the evening, or getting close to the ground for a picnic, you’re seating is fundamental to comfort and sociability. There are a number of options for seating, with high-quality choices like rattan garden furniture being popular because they satisfy a number of essential outdoor qualities. This, however, shouldn’t put you off also adding statement seating pieces, such as hammocks and hanging chairs, which can be enjoyed during large social gatherings and intimate outdoor evenings.

3) Featured Attractions

Your friends and family will likely want to visit your home solely to see you but with a featured attraction, your garden could easily become the most desirable social setting. Such features include outdoor kitchens to cook and serve an exquisite dinner, private cinemas with large screens projected onto walls, and even saunas, which are becoming a popular way to renovate garden sheds. All of these home renovation projects give guests an exciting reason to visit and can even turn your garden into a regular neighbourhood destination.

4) Keep It Private 

When considering outdoor social events, you must also think of neighbouring properties too, or else your social fun may just be cut short by next door grumbles. Fortunately, there are a number of garden design techniques that can be used before you begin erecting fences. Trees and hedges are remarkably useful for garden borders since they not only provide great amounts of privacy and shade but also dampen noise, meaning your neighbours are less likely to be disturbed even if your gathering runs on late into the evening!
