Offbeat Outdoor Spaces
Create an outdoor space that fits your garden and you.
Madison Moulton

Modern gardening requires a holistic approach. Gone are the days of carefully curating a garden bed and perfecting a lawn, only to throw a metal table or bench in the corner and call it a day. These days your garden’s hardscaping elements are just as important as the plants themselves and are often the spaces that get the most use. Choose your favorite from these categories or combine them to complete your offbeat, modern garden design.

When designing a garden, outdoor entertaining areas are not merely places to sit. Choose furniture and decor carefully, with a combination of textures and colors, to turn your outdoor space into the highlight of your garden. This outdoor space combines the structure of arty concrete furniture with soft furnishings and plants for a modern, offbeat design.

Combining flashes of red and pops of yellow in decorative elements like blankets and pillows provides colour without overwhelming the space. These elements can also be easily changed for a new look in a few minutes.
