Living Al Fresco
Once upon a time, Northern Irish gardens were largely forgotten about; being simply the place to host a sporadic BBQ or two upon sight of sun with a hotchpotch of chairs, tables and cushions moved from inside to outside to accommodate the family and/or guests assembled for the occasion. From this, we’re familiar with dining al fresco but this season has taken the concept to new, dizzy heights.
Today, elaborate outdoor living spaces have cemented the ‘living al fresco’ trend taking over gardens, with everything from outdoor bars, kitchens and hot tubs becoming mainstay features of regular homes across the county.
