Garden Design Sunshine Coast

Whether it’s a dinner, a birthday party, a barbecue, a wedding, cocktails or even a simple picnic, what a joy to be outside playing the host and enjoying entertaining everyone al fresco. You need space for your friends and family to gather, and a focal point, and to create a cosy, cheery retreat that makes all your guests feel special. A fireplace or fire pit generates warmth both literally and figuratively, and can certainly extend the outdoor season. A pergola or canopy creates a shaded, protected area and adds to the atmosphere too. A swimming pool is both a simple pleasure and a luxury. Might you want music? This is all about hospitality — and being well prepared. Here are some tips for garden design in Sunshine Coast:

Eat, drink and be merry

Actually, all you need is for the weather to be on your side, mountains of really delicious food, simple or elaborate, plenty of booze, a prettily decorated table or tables, and enough leisure to calm down beforehand so as to extend an enthusiastic welcome as people arrive and admire and settle down to have a good time.

Entertain in garden style

How about a mobile drinks station? Just a well stocked bar cart with glasses and plates, plenty of ice, water, mixers and bottles, which can be easily wheeled to and from the kitchen. Some citronella and incense should keep mosquitoes and other bugs away — and sunscreen might be a good idea too. Soft, thick, comfortable cushions will encourage guests to relax completely and linger at the table. Let them lose track of time deep in stimulating conversation. Is the lawn mown? Are the hedges trimmed? What about the lighting? And flowers? A well-prepared host puts guests at their ease, but you have to relax and enjoy yourself too, so it makes sense to prepare as much as possible in advance.
