Outdoor Entertainment Gathering Space - Seasons Best Landscaping

Outdoor Gathering Spaces for Large Estates

From intimate gatherings to extravagant events, designing outdoor gathering spaces tailored for entertainment can elevate large estates. See how to create an outdoor gathering space you and your guests will love.

1. Define Functional Zones

Consider the available space on your property and ways to use it for different activities. Large estates allow you to create multiple entertainment zones, such as dining areas, lounges and recreational spaces.

2. Provide Seating Areas

Offer plenty of seating options to accommodate different types of gatherings and activities. This can include outdoor sofas, chairs, benches and even hardscape elements like sitting walls or concrete benches.

3. Create a Focal Point

Incorporate a feature in your outdoor gathering space that draws attention and becomes the centerpiece of the space. Popular options include a swimming pool, pond, fire pit, fountain or beautifully landscaped central area.

4. Install an Outdoor Kitchen and Bar 

Take your entertaining to the next level with a well-equipped outdoor kitchen and bar area. Install quality appliances, ample counter space, comfortable seating and a built-in cooler or wine fridge to create a functional and stylish culinary experience.

5. Incorporate Outdoor Lighting

Install ample outdoor lighting to create ambiance and extend the usability of your space into the evening. Consider string lights, pathway lighting, spotlights or even fire features like fire pits or fireplaces to make your landscaping shine after dark.

6. Provide Shade and Shelter

Add structures like pergolas, gazebos or umbrellas to provide shade and protection from the elements. This allows for comfortable outdoor entertaining even during hot summer days or light rain and provides a great place for friends and family to gather and enjoy each other’s company.

7. Integrate Entertainment Features

Invite guests to discover new experiences or activities. Depending on personal preferences, consider adding features like an outdoor sound system, a projector for outdoor movie nights, a sports court or a game area with activities like bocce ball or horseshoes.

8. Ensure Privacy

If privacy is a concern, incorporate elements like hedges, fences or trellises to create a secluded and intimate atmosphere for outdoor gatherings.

The Perfect Outdoor Gathering Space Design

Remember, designing outdoor spaces to gather and enjoy should reflect your personal preferences, lifestyle and the overall aesthetic of the property. Through careful planning and design, you can create a welcoming environment that enhances your estate and get-togethers.
