  1. They Are Great for Entertaining

According to The Landscape Association, Outdoor dining areas are great for entertaining friends and family. This is especially true if you’re lucky enough to live in a part of Australia with a warm, dry climate that isn’t too hot.

Including things like a BBQ, fancy lighting and an outdoor dining suite as part of your outdoor dining area will only make it more functional. Really, who would say no to sitting under the stars with a cold drink on a warm summer’s evening?
