Outdoor entertainment can be a homeowner’s best friend. After all, spending time with friends outside means you won’t have to clean the house from top to bottom, only to be left with a mountain of mess. Instead, you can embrace the elements, enjoy a clutter-free home for the evening, and generally provide an outdoor dining experience to remember. 

But, what if your outdoor space doesn’t suit this kind of al fresco dinner party? After all, a range of outdoor issues can mean that you may be reluctant to welcome guests into your garden. 

Luckily, even the worst garden setup can suit outdoor entertainment if you eliminate the most pressing outdoor issues like the following. *This post contains affiliate links

Leveling Uneven Land

If your outdoor space is uneven and rife with holes, you may worry that outdoor entertainment could end in injuries. And, your concerns aren’t altogether unfounded, especially considering that guests will often walk this unfamiliar ground in the dark.

Luckily, key DIY tips can help level even the most uneven or sloped yard, and they include top dressing, regrading, and filling any lumps or bumps. Professional patio installations can also ensure an even outdoor surface. If you’re dealing with large gaps or drops between a decking area or patio door, you could also benefit from installing threshold ramps that make these transitions easier for everyone to manage. And, of course, proper lighting is key for ensuring that, even if there are hidden holes in your lawn, your guests can easily step around them instead of breaking their ankles. 


Creating comfort outside

If you live in extreme climates or simply haven’t set your outdoor space up for al fresco entertainment, you may feel that your garde, deck or patio lacks comfort. Investing in a comfortable and stylish outdoor patio furniture set is a the first step to creating the type of outdoor entertaining area your family and guests will want to linger.


It’s also easy to create  outdoor comfort regardless of temperatures. For relatively little cost, you can now invest in everything from full patio sets to outdoor fireplace tables that keep everyone cozy. Even something as simple as a string of fairy lights and a blanket box can see you enjoying the fresh night with friends who are unlikely to wish they were indoors. 

Limiting a lack of privacy

It’ll be difficult to have fun with friends if your neighbors can look right down and see what you’re up to. 

Unfortunately, you can’t do much about your proximity to your neighbors. But, that doesn’t mean you’re stuck dealing with a complete lack of privacy. In fact, getting your garden growing with high plants, trellises, and even high hedge borders, can help to obscure neighborly views. Even if you only install these additions in one corner of your garden, hosting outdoor events here can save you that feeling of having the whole street watching you.  If you don’t have patience, try an artifical greenery privacy panel wall of ivy or boxwood for instant privacy!
