It is that time of the year again to get out the "Barbie" invite some friends over and enjoy the outdoors.

More and more we are creating patios as extensions of our living areas and as such like to incorporate and furnish these areas for relaxation and/or entertaining.

On this patio we used Bradstone "Old Town" Flagstones and Balustrading from Corinthian Stone. The look is elegant without being overly formal.

See how we spruced up this patio with pots from "Poterie Clarous"

A Chiminea adds a nice focal point as well as adding a little heat on cooler nights.

These have been very popular and it is easy to see why. We have choose the cast iron chiminea from Glo-Art.

The chimeneas at Glo-Art can be used as barbecues, ovens, smokers and grills, as well as patio heaters. Indoor use is also possible. All their clay chimeneas burn logs or charcoal. The Cast-Iron chims will also burn smokeless Coalite™.

What's better than having friends and family over on a beautiful summer evening and grilling out?

With Outback's Australian-style grill, they come with Porcelain Enamelled Grills and Griddles, eliminating forever the rust problems associated with standard cast iron.


Using the patio as an extension of your living area you will want to furnish it with nice pieces which brings everything together.

The patio enjoys great views

Here we have utilised an eight seat extending table from Roy Firman Ltd. The furniture is made out of Yellow Balau. This is an excellent mid-range outdoor furniture set.

For other times when you want to chill with some friends or by yourself being by a pond is very tranquil. Here we designed a pond and added a waterfall, deck and Jagram swing, loungers, bridge and pavillion which enhanced the setting as well as taking advantage of the views.

We added a the Finnforest "Talo" Summerhouse to the garden situated in the orchard (still has the views) which has a seperate section for all the gardening tools.

This offers an excellent retreat or studio/office.
