8 ideas for creating the ultimate outdoor dining area

Outdoor living enthusiasts understand one principle above all when it comes to their outdoor living space:  It is meant to enjoy and to draw people together.  Nothing accomplishes this task like an outdoor dining area.  Think about how a dining room brings family together inside the home, and you will understand the power of creating an outdoor dining area.  This post from the Landscaping Network gives 8 stunning examples of outdoor dining areas that will inspire you to bring your family and friends together for outdoor meals.

Here is an excerpt from the post:

Brick Dining Courtyard
With the neighbor’s home only eighteen feet away, the main concern this family was privacy. They wanted to enjoy their outdoor dining space without feeling like they were being watched. The solution was to build walls and enclose the space, essentially turning it into a courtyard. A high, solid brick wall at the rear, provides complete screening, while lower, pierced brick walls provide ventilation and ensure that the dining space feels airy. Edibles are grown in the planters at the base of the walls, making it possible to pick fresh herbs for alfresco meals.

Foodie-Friendly Dining Patio
Designed with food lovers in mind, this backyard dining room has everything necessary for a mouth-watering meal outdoors. When designing your own outdoor dining space, make sure your patio is large enough to accommodate the number of guests you typically entertain. Here, the paver patio graciously accommodates a table for six and still has plenty of walk-around space. Additionally, a built-in grill and buffet counter make it possible to cook and serve the meal nearby.
