COMFORTABLE GARDEN FURNITURE
A pleasant space is essentially a comfortable space. Even if it is outdoors, comfort has its place. And it’s partly easy to implement. First, there is the choice of garden furniture. The seats must be pleasant and adapted to the height of the garden table. There is nothing more unpleasant than having a table that is too high, your arms too raised to eat. And if the meal drags on, we tend to have stiffness in the neck and/or shoulders. So you have to make sure that the table and chair set is suitable, a bit like you would in a dining room. If you are more of an outdoor sofa and coffee table, here too, make sure that the coffee table is not too low about your seat. In a second step, to improve the comfort of your garden furniture, there are cushions. Even if it is imperative to return them every evening, it is inexpensive paid for the comfort and softness that they will bring you. Too harsh sunbathing quickly turns into an invitation to a nap with a good cushion!
PROTECT YOURSELF FROM THE SUN TO TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF
To protect yourself from the sun, one of the essentials is the parasol.
The garden parasol has evolved a lot in recent years to allow you a large amount of shade on the terrace. It is interesting when you take lunch outside, it is at this time of the day that the sun beats the strongest and it is, therefore, essential to protect yourself, to avoid sunstroke for example. The ideal is to have a parasol that covers the whole table and its surroundings so that the whole family is protected. We also really like the offset parasol models, which are placed next to the table and not in the center. They are much more mobile and flexible than conventional parasols. What is also interesting is that you can easily change their orientation. No need to move the base, the foot, and the umbrella to cover the children in the grass once my meal is finished. With a simple gesture, the deported parasol protects another part of your garden without worries.
WORK ON THE LIGHTING FOR EVENINGS THAT GO ON FOREVER IN THE GARDEN
Still, around the table, we have the question of convivial meals which last until night falls. And to keep the moment pleasant, it is always good to have suitable lighting. In the garden, one can imagine two types of lighting. The first is an ambiance system which will aim to enhance your garden during the night and which will allow you to move around easily. It does not need to be very powerful, however, it spreads throughout your outdoor space. If you have a balcony, for example, a garland of light on the railing may be sufficient while warning of the danger of a vacuum; The second type of lighting to provide in your exterior is a more functional system and much more targeted since it serves to illuminate your dining area. We avoid the too strong projector which will dazzle your guests. On the other hand, it must be powerful enough to see what is on the plate.
PLANTS AND FLOWERS TO FRESHEN UP YOUR GARDEN
The second solution to create freshness: vegetation. It is not enough for a bed of daisies for your garden to be fresher, we agree. It is the type of development that is built over time and can be incredibly rewarding in many ways. To create freshness thanks to the vegetation of your garden is to create a 100% natural arrangement. A mixture of trees, bushes, plants (with or without flowers) that will allow the soil to keep its humidity. If permaculture is catching your eye, now is the time to think about it. For this year, it will probably be too late to benefit from all the richness of this type of garden but from next year it will be good. And now is the time to start thinking about it.
A SPACE TO REST QUIETLY
Take advantage of your quiet garden to take a nap, watch the birds in the neighbor’s tree, or read a good novel. And for that, nothing like installing a quiet space with a swing or a hammock. Besides, the hammock is on the coast right now, outside and inside! Again, make sure you have enough shade in this space with a tree or umbrella. It would be a shame to finish red like a crayfish.
