Garden Table Plans + Ideas for Backyard Eating

Wouldn’t it be lovely to have a garden table in your garden?

One of my favorite garden designs always includes an eating area close to the garden

When you have a garden bench or a garden table close to your garden you’re creating a wonderful and calming place to just ‘be’. Eating outside has many benefits like enjoying fresh air and eating around your plants. It’s also easy to harvest some fresh veggies and prepare a healthy garden salad. Grab some fresh mint for your drinks and some flowers for the table and voila! Eating in paradise.

  • Plant salad crops for a quick harvest and make a fresh garden salad outside on your garden table!
