We find ourselves watching television shows like Outdoor Living Spaces, Indoors Out, Yard Crashers and wishing we could have an outdoor entertaining area too. As more and more of us discover the boundless joys of outdoor living, we are inviting friends and family over to join in the fun.

You don’t need a large piece of land to create your very own outdoor escape. Creating an attractive space for outdoor entertaining can be both attainable and affordable.

Depending on what you like to do, and of course your budget, entertaining outdoors can take shape in a variety of ways and more often than not it includes cooking, eating, drinking and relaxing.

Play up the natural elements in your space to make your outdoor living area connect with the land by using natural stone and native plantings. Fences, walls, plantings, and pergolas all offer attractive ways to make outdoor spaces more private.

Everything in your outdoor entertaining area should look as though it belongs together, and it should blend with your house. Fortunately, most natural outdoor materials – stone, brick, and wood compliment each other so it’s hard to make a big mistake.
Appliance manufacturers have created the ultimate in outdoor entertaining appliances such as grills, refrigerators, ice machines, wine coolers, fire-pans, and even flat screen televisions.
