Having your own greenery on your doorstep is the big draw in summer. A private garden offers space and peace for everything that otherwise goes on inside. People cook, relax and play outside. Young and old enjoy time outdoors during the warm summer months and make the most of every minute. Places to recharge your batteries are always convenient. A lounge in the fresh air invites you to linger and spend time together with friends and family on warm summer days and cozy summer nights. Here you will find inspiration on how you can create an oasis on your terrace or balcony.

The term lounge means comfortable seating that you just want to lie down in. It has to be comfortable. Garden furniture with expansive seat cushions is well suited. This bench made of acacia wood can be converted into a daybed, so you can enjoy relaxing naps during the day and friends and family can find space to sit in the evening. You can supplement the garden lounge with seat cushions and blankets to make it even more comfortable on cooler evenings.

Cool drinks and delicious grilled food are just as much a part of summer as airy clothing and pools in the garden. If you want to entertain guests or just the family outdoors, you need space for serving. A large garden table is ideal for this, or a serving trolley for small items. Models with built-in cooling are particularly suitable for drinks that guests want to put together themselves.

When the sun has set, the cozy outdoor area needs light to invite you to linger. There are various options that you can either leave alone or combine with each other. A fire basket provides natural light and atmospheric crackling. There are also large lanterns that conjure up beautiful plays of light in the garden. Artificial light sources such as fairy lights that you can stretch over the lounge or solar lights that charge themselves during the day also work well. Instead of fire baskets, table fireplaces that run on bioethanol are also suitable for balconies.

The cozy lounge in the green invites you to relax, especially when there is peace and quiet there. You can easily avoid prying eyes from neighbors by investing in a privacy screen. The choice is large, you can rely on fast-growing privacy protection plants such as bamboo or aids such as screens and raised beds (you can find even more ideas for privacy protection options for balconies and terraces in this star article).
