Entertain in the garden concept

The Open Living Company was recommended to us by a previous customer of theirs and we have been so happy with the quality of the work, together with their creative problem-solving, that we have asked them back to do extra work for us.

The spirit of summer

Summer fun with friends and family

Just close your eyes and imagine that you can hear the sound of friends laughing, glasses chinking and corks popping.  You can breathe in the smell of roasting herbs on an open bbq fire and the scent of freshly cut grass and see beautiful flowers in full bloom.  It is the spirit of summer.

Alfresco dining

It is the season of alfresco dining and entertaining – the months when gardens come alive and families and friends come together to enjoy the freedom of living outdoors.  From traditional burgers and sausages to marinated salmon cut very thin and flash-fried in a wok over the coals and scallops wrapped in parma ham and cooked on foil, all washed down with ice cold wine or water… alfresco dining is a weekend delight.

Garden colour and definition

And, as the day moves into evening, the warm glow of the fire pit and stunning, atmospheric lighting, some of it twinkling under water, give the garden new colour, shape and definition.

Outdoor kitchens

All this can be yours. If you enjoy entertaining in your garden, The Open Living Company can help you create a space that works for you.  From staged decking or shaped patio, edged by a gently flowing water rill and canopied by a flower laden pergola, to the creation of a contemporary garden kitchen and stylish outside dining room – talk to us about the kind of entertaining you like to do and we can make the outside entertaining space of your dreams.
