How to design a garden setting? If it’s been a while you’re in the hospitality industry, then it’s probably not the first time you ask this question. Actually, every single time a change needs to be done to the outdoors, this question pops in first. Although there’s no One Way of creating an outdoor living, you can follow some garden design ideas to have an attractive setting.
As a hospitality furniture company, we find it our duty to share with you and our clients, some garden design ideas to greet guests in a welcoming way. So take notes, and consider using these 4 trends:
Adopting vertical gardening
When designing the outdoors, restaurants, hotels and resorts mostly focus on the horizontal space by carefully choosing the garden furniture and coming up with a plan for the setup. However, what is usually forgotten is the decoration of the garden or patio’s vertical space. Most gardens contain plants, flowers, and statues, but forget to add a special vertical touch. A good addition would be the Greens collection from the outdoor furniture brand Maiori. Greens are planters with a simple drip watering system allowing water to flow from top to bottom, eliminating water paddles and overwatering.
Creating a semi enclosed outdoor living room
What’s the use of taking care of your garden and designing your patio if you won’t welcome guests in the open air? One trend to follow is by creating a semi enclosed outdoor room with 3 walls and a ceiling. This area will include restaurants tables and chairs, or hotel outdoor furniture to create a unique experience. The secret recipe to building a cozy space is by keeping the feeling of an outdoor area so guests enjoy the beautiful weather.
Placing a garden pergola
Another trend to receive guests in the outdoors is to install a pergola in the middle of the garden. This feature allows visitors to sit, eat, or relax on outdoor furniture, and at the same time to stay protected from direct sunlight. The pergola can either be made from wood or, for a more luxurious style, from aluminum. For example, Jardinico introduces Attitude, an outdoor umbrella that is used as gazebo.
Mixing new and old in the garden
Unless the theme of your business is to give a classical style by using old-looking furniture, it is time to start combining different approaches. After talking, in a previous article, about mixing and matching different materials and styles, now is the time to blend old and new outdoor furniture together. The only rule here is to smoothly pair the two styles as some elements might not go well together.
