Extend Your Living Space: Create an Outdoor Dining Area with Quality Sod

Picture this: a balmy summer evening, the sun is setting, casting a warm, golden glow over your beautiful backyard. You are hosting a dinner party at your house, but this is no ordinary get-together. Guests are seated not in your dining room but outside, right on your lawn. Surrounded by lush, green sod under a canopy of twinkling lights, the night is filled with laughter, good food, and the beauty of nature. Doesn’t that sound like the perfect way to entertain at home? It can be your reality when you choose to extend your living space into the outdoors with a quality sod lawn from NG Turf. 

Our homes have become more than just living spaces in recent times; they’ve evolved into personal sanctuaries, entertainment hubs, and even gourmet restaurants. Why not add ‘enchanting, alfresco dining area’ to that list? With the right sod, you can create a lush, natural carpet that enhances the appeal and usability of your outdoor space, providing the perfect foundation for an inviting outdoor dining area.

Choosing the Right Type of Sod

When choosing the right type of sod for your outdoor dining area, you want to consider both aesthetics and function. NG Turf offers a range of sod varieties, including Bermuda, Zoysia, Fescue, and Bluegrass each with their unique characteristics. Bermuda, for instance, is hard-wearing and heat-tolerant, making it ideal for high-traffic areas. Zoysia, on the other hand, provides a dense, cushiony feel underfoot and has a rich, deep green color. Fescue varieties are great for shaded areas and offer a uniform, carpet-like look. 

Get Creative!

Once you’ve picked the perfect sod, it’s time to get creative. Layout is key in an outdoor dining area. Consider the flow of traffic and make sure there’s ample space for a dining table and chairs, a grill, and perhaps even a fire pit for those cooler nights. Potted plants, a pergola, or an outdoor umbrella can provide a sense of enclosure and intimacy, while a border of fragrant herbs or flowers adds a touch of color and a delightful scent.

Maintenance is Key!

Of course, maintenance is crucial to keep your new sod lawn looking its best. Regular watering, proper mowing, and seasonal fertilizing are all part of the equation. However, the rewards of a well-maintained lawn are immense, and at NG Turf, we’re always here to provide guidance and support along the way. 


Transforming your backyard into an outdoor dining oasis with quality sod is more than just a home improvement project; it’s an investment in your home’s value and a commitment to enhancing your quality of life.
