If you love gardening and grilling, there’s no better way to spend a warm evening than to have a backyard barbecue grill outside. Whether you’re having friends around or just having a quiet dinner with family, a grill is always fun.
It can be a great project to create the perfect grilling spot in your garden. You want to make your outdoor space into a cozy area, centered around the grill.
If you want to transform your garden properly, you’ll need to get your gardening gloves on. Where can you put your grill and how can you make your garden look good?
If you don’t have a patio space, then perhaps consider creating one. A patio is a great place to host a grill and outdoor furniture. You could also create pathways through your garden to avoid treading over the grass.
Keep stations near to the grill so that once cooked, you can lay food out alongside any other drinks and nibbles you have on offer.
You can make your garden grilling space look extra nice by adding outdoor features. These will help to create an inviting atmosphere in which to enjoy your grill.
Stringing up lights between bushes or trees or even hanging them along a fence can look pretty. You could also install lights between patio tiles or have free-standing lamps dotted around the garden.
Mirrors can create an illusion of space. Dot a few around your garden to make it look bigger. This can look extra gorgeous if you have lights that are then reflected in the mirror.
Hanging baskets and planters can be used to keep your garden looking fresh. When you have a grill, you don’t want to look at tatty fencing and dead grass. Plant some flowers and shrubs in tubs to make your garden look fresh and exciting.
You can’t make your outdoor space into the perfect grilling spot without updating your garden furniture. If you don’t want to buy new, consider revamping what you already have.
If your wooden table and chairs are looking tired, give them a quick sanding and then either paint or varnish them. You can add pretty designs and top chairs with cushions to make everything look extra fresh.
You could also dot cushions around the garden if the weather is nice. Spread rugs out on the grass and sprinkle cushions over them for extra comfort.
A fire pit creates a lovely central point in your garden, especially if you’re having a grill. Create the perfect grilling space by putting the fire and surrounding seating near the grill and food stations.
If the weather is extremely hot or rainy, you’ll need to consider garden and grilling shelters. How will you keep your family, guests, grill, and grilling tools, shaded or dry if the weather turns?
One great way to keep your grill protected is to build or install a small wooden hut over it. This means that whoever is cooking can also stay out of the sun or rain.
You could also consider using a gazebo. People can sit under this to eat in extreme weather and it can cover your grill too if necessary.
