Garden and outdoor design is the art and the process of creating plans for the layout of outdoor space. In this article, we will discuss how to plan which furnishings that you should consider when taking into perspective the options that you have available for your garden.
Make your garden come to life with design and style with some of these amazing ideas for your garden and patio area – the possibilities are endless, so we recommend reading up on how to execute this properly.
Set out separate areas
You should use furniture to create some incredibly distinct spaces on different levels, you can use Mobek’s coloured Adirondack chairs to make a block colour space wherever you desire. This goes fantastic with our garden tables, this means that you can have a permanent outdoor space all year round without needing to tuck away your tables and chairs for the winter. This can be used on a patio or even your garden itself! The only consideration here would be allowing your garden to recover over the winter period as the wet conditions can negatively affect the condition of a grass lawn.
Make it functional and practical
Patio furniture arrangements need to be set up to fulfil your specific needs. If it is a place to receive guests to eat outdoor meals for example, then you should have an outdoor dining set! If you are having more casual gatherings, then you should have a separate area where you could have a variety of chaise lounges, chairs and even side tables.
Guests can therefore flow from one conversation to another with natural separation. This gives the space free-flowing natural energy, which is perfect in a social setting for people to be able to enjoy their conversations and more. This is all achieved with the natural separations that are created through designating conservation areas defined by furniture placement.
Create focal points
Focal points are a great idea, an area to set your furniture around, for example, a fire pit or a chimney with an array of furniture. You could also have it arranged to look out over a view if you have a seaside or countryside home. Additionally, if you are lucky enough to own anything like a pool then this is an obvious choice of orientation.
Keep a seating area balanced by including larger pieces of furniture with smaller pieces. For example, you might have a couple of smaller chairs, but why not put aside a larger table with a bench on the other side? The possibilities are endless, but look out for balance as a core tenant of your design philosophy.
Make it your own!
Don’t forget to incorporate your sense of style, as soon as you’ve found the right layout, you should add certain accessories and pops of colour to directly speak to your personality. Greenery, as well as lighting, can take up extra room within the space so you need to account for this. It’s all about balance, so don’t allow the garden to seem cluttered with too much.
