During 2020, many people moved indoor events to outside on recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). They learned that the outdoors is a great place for hosting everything from intimate gatherings to large parties. What can make your space more amenable to outdoor entertaining is an upgrade to your landscaping architecture that includes places to gather and enjoy company in fresh air.

Outdoor Dining

Make your next outdoor gathering an event to remember with proper dining spaces in your yard. You can have beautiful dining areas outside, as seen in this example of a dining set beside an outdoor kitchen. The overhead pavilion filters out the strongest rays of sunlight while protecting diners from the elements. It also establishes the dining area as a distinctive space in the landscape.

Outdoor Cooking

Outdoor entertaining often requires food. Upgrade from a basic grill to an elaborate outdoor kitchen that will let you serve more than burgers and hot dogs.

In this space designed by Mark Scott Associates, Inc., you can see the outdoor kitchen in the foreground of the pool area with a casual dining table nearby. The kitchen area features a bar sink for meal and drink prep, and a large grill for next-level outdoor barbecuing.

Outdoor Conversation Spaces

Seating spaces outside don’t have to include informal folding lounge chairs by a pool. In fact, your outdoor conversation spaces should be just as comfortable as beautiful as the ones inside your home.

For instance, this example of a conversation area uses cushiony chairs surrounding a fire pit and beside a pool feature. The space pairs the natural elements of water and fire with the seating area to provide an interesting surround for any conversation.
