This show garden encapsulates Michael McGarr’s signature outdoor kitchen design look, which combines stunning textural planting with usable living spaces for eating and dining. With a fire/ ice table and top-of-the-range Alfa wood-burning pizza oven https://www.alfaforni.com/en/domestic-ovens/, this is an outdoor kitchen garden design for family gatherings on a warm summer evening in mind. Remote LED garden lighting was installed for late night cooking and entertaining. https://www.warnes-mcgarr.co.uk/2019/01/16/garden-lighting-in-landscape-design/ 

The contemporary planting combines grasses, tall flowering plants and edible planting for a very modern textured look. The corten steel pergola gives a sculptural shape to the garden, and clearly defines an eating and cooking area.

However, nature is never forgotten, even in an outdoor kitchen design, and hedgehog passes were cut into the fencing, and bug hotels dotted around to ensure wildlife can thrive.
