gourmet garden style


Living and eating al fresco is uniquely pleasurable experience, and when the sun shines here its an opportunity we leap at. Ditch the ugly metal barbecue in favour of an organic outside kitchen; an eating/lounging space surrounded by edibles and calling out for an open-air feast.

Raised veg beds or a living wall of herbs small and look great, and act as your very own outdoor larder. A simple gas hob can be set into weathered oak worktops with a small fridge for summer drinks tucked underneath. A sturdy wooden pergola hosts grape vines for shade and strings of lights for evening, under which is a generous dining table and seating for as many as you can handle. And at night, light up the pizza oven or firebasket and pour another glass of wine.
