    Yes, I'd also like to know where I can get these chairs. Anyone know?

2. Meadow hideaway. If your outdoor table is positioned in a standout garden setting, keep all attention on the beauty of the landscape with an understated outdoor dining setup. For example, in this backyard in upstate New York, simple low-backed metal chairs and a sleek outdoor table nearly disappear from view among a stunning meadow planting of billowing ornamental grasses and flowering perennials.How to Design a Meadow Garden Everyone Will Love

10. Set up a dining table. Add a dining table and chairs to your backyard to encourage your family to dine al fresco.

8. Block the view and create rooms. If you have a few hundred square feet, you can certainly create a private little sitting area, a space for a sculpture or fountain, or simply a nice garden vantage point. I’m also into plants blocking my view at turns, or even in the middle of beds — surprise me; make me work to see what’s being hidden. Put that Baptisia or Joe Pye Weed right in my way so I’m startled.

The clearing can be a large entertaining space or a secluded spot for two. Consider the intended function before you undertake any major construction. Primary entertaining areas are best sited close to the kitchen, whereas your secret garden is likely to be tucked farther away.

Compressing space with vertical and overhead planes creates a powerful experience. Arbors, walls, trees and tall perennials become great tools for creating an experience of place and are worthy considerations for most gardens.I discovered the work of the late Wolfgang Oehme years ago, and have great reverence for what he brought to the world of design. Here, his firm constructs a flagstone patio among drifts of robust perennials. The Bertoia chairs are beautiful, and the arbor beyond invites exploration. Creating a plan of circulation through a property becomes one of the first considerations in place making. Ideally, areas of the garden relate to one another, like these two paved areas. One space is designed for dining, the other is set under an overhead plane, but both invite exploration with an alternate perspective of the same garden.

Add flowering perennials Many exotic flowering perennials do well in natural gardens when the site is right (check plant directories or with your local garden centre if you’re unsure what will suit your garden). Plant any of the following in generous sweeps for maximum impact: agapanthus (non-invasive varieties), alstroemeria, aristea, asters, astilbe, aquilegia, autumn glory (Helianthus salicifolius) cannas, clivia, daylilies, dietes, echinacea, echium, euphorbia, foxgloves, grape hyacinth, helichrysum, Japanese anemone, many irises, liriope, lythrum, nerines, rudbeckia, salvia, and sedum.

Adore this naturalized setting surrounding the full size outdoor dining area. I would add more comfortable chairs for hours of laughter, food & fun! Possibly a more substantial recycled wood table as well.
