When you live somewhere as gorgeous as Phoenix, of course you’ll want to eat outside as much as you can. Our summer days are beautiful, the evenings are mild— perfect for family meals, romantic dinners, brunches or even formal celebrations.
And with artificial grass installation in Phoenix, AZ, you can create an amazing dining space no matter the size of your yard. Use the tips below to create an outdoor dining area that’s comfortable and attractive at the same time!
What’s the best place for an outdoor dining area?
1. Choose a central location.
Ideally, everyone should have a nice view towards your backyard. Most often, this is on or near a patio, terrace or a deck.
2. Place it under the shade.
It’s always a good idea to have some sort of shade protecting your outdoor dining space from the elements. This way, the party doesn’t have to stop just because of a little rain or too much glare!
If you already have a shaded area, that’s great— place your outdoor dining set there. Otherwise, here are some ideas:
• Patio cover
• Extended awning
• Gazebo-style roof
• Cover your structure with flowering vines or mature trees
• Use large umbrellas
In terms of design, artificial grass in Phoenix can accommodate most shade structures, so you don’t have to worry about damaging your installation with the weight.
For best results, though, we’d be happy to help you figure out the optimal way to blend your shade structure with synthetic turf.
3. Make it convenient.
For practicality’s sake, place your dining area as near as possible to the kitchen. This makes it safer to bring dishes back and forth and easier for guests to get what they need, such as beverages. However, don’t place it too close to your grill in order to avoid accidents.
What furniture do you need?
It’s far easier to shop for outdoor dining furniture when you have artificial turf in Phoenix versus a natural lawn.
For one, you won’t have to worry about creating divots or killing the grass in and around your dining area. Next, no mud and bugs to crash the party. Finally, you won’t have to mow, water or otherwise maintain the space around the furniture, which is especially useful if you go for the heavier ones.
As for the furniture itself, you have a ton of options, ranging from a traditional picnic table with benches to elegant outdoor couches and even high-tech selections.
