How to Create a Summer Entertaining Area*

Have you neglected that area just outside your back door? Well, it’s about time to polish it up and make it a place you want to be. Today I am sharing some tips on where to save and where to splurge, so you can create your entertaining area of your dreams.

Working on a blank canvas
Our outdoor space can sometimes be turned into a dumping ground with old garden toys, old or broken gardening tools and garden cuttings waiting to be taken to the local dump. To make things easier, look at skip hire. Most of the waste you create as part of your gardening plans will easily be accepted in a skip, such as wood, grass, soil, leaves, hedge trimmings, flower cuttings and rubble. Garden waste clearance is one area for you to splurge as it will save you time and stress.

Partition your garden area
There are lots of simple but effective ways to achieve dividing the garden into sections from soft landscaping such as a low hedge or herbaceous plants to different surface textures. Gravel is one of the cheapest and easiest alternatives to paving slabs. Use gravel as a patio. You can do this in a way that makes it look like it was stylistically what you chose instead of a low-cost option.

Garden furniture
Boost the appeal of your outdoor living space with garden furniture. There are lots of different types available to suit your needs. From garden dining to lounging to compact options with clever storage. Garden furniture should be durable enough to withstand wear and tear from time and weather. We all know the saying buy cheap, buy twice. To make sure you invest your money in it.

Set the mood

Choosing the right lighting plays a pivotal role in creating that warming ambience when entertaining, string lights are low cost, and they are very attractive. They light up your space, adding distinction to your entire outdoor area. A low-cost option adds loads of value, shops such as B&M and Home Bargains have plenty of wallet-friendly lighting to pick from.
