Living Outdoors

Here at Garden Junkie, we believe there’s something truly magical about living outdoors and embracing the great outdoors right in your own garden.

Whether you have a sprawling estate or a cosy urban space, creating an outdoor living area can enhance your quality of life and bring you closer to nature.

Outdoor living is a great way to enjoy the fresh air, sunshine or even cool autumn nights around a firepit but it’s so much much much more, just spending time with your family and friends is worth the effort and the expense in the end.

Living Outdoors in Your Garden

Start with comfortable seating options that invite relaxation. Wooden benches, wrought-iron chairs, or plush garden sofas can provide the perfect spot for enjoying a cup of tea or like me reading a good book.

Add soft cushions and throws in earthy tones to blend seamlessly with your natural surroundings. With the right accessories outdoor spaces can provide a comfortable and inviting environment that encourages people to spend more time outside together.

Outdoor furniture such as sun loungers, overhanging parasols, and garden umbrellas can make your outdoor living space much more comfortable and functional.

Gardens are also the ideal backdrop for al fresco dining. A rustic wooden dining table, accompanied by matching chairs, can be the setting for delightful meals with family and friends. String lights overhead can add a touch of enchantment, allowing you to enjoy your garden well into the evening.

Smokers and BBQs of course are the perfect accompaniments for those wanting to cook up those delicious meals for your family and friends.

To create a sense of intimacy, consider incorporating trellises adorned with climbing vines or hanging curtains that gently billow in the breeze. These elements can define your outdoor space while maintaining an open connection to the garden.

Don’t forget to add some potted plants and flowers to your outdoor living area, bringing vibrant colours and a touch of fragrance to the space. Herbs like rosemary and lavender can also serve as both decoration and culinary inspiration.

For those seeking relaxation, consider a hammock or a reclining lounge chair, strategically placed under the shade of a tree. Here, you can while away the hours, listening to the chirping of birds and the rustling of leaves.

Lastly, the soothing sound of running water can elevate your garden’s ambience. A small fountain or wildlife pond with aquatic plants can create a tranquil oasis that invites meditation and reflection.

Living outdoors in your garden allows you to connect with the natural world around you, providing a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life. With a few carefully chosen elements, your garden can become a haven where you can unwind, entertain, and bask in the beauty of the great outdoors, right on your doorstep.

With the right outdoor furniture and or cooking equipment, you can create an inviting space that encourages people to spend more time outside together, away from the TV. So why not start planning your outdoor living space today?
