In 2020 the world changed in ways none of us expected. While we all thought the initial shifts were temporary, as we come up on two years later, the adjustments we’ve had to make are looking to be more and more long-term.
One of the most impacted by the changes was the restaurant industry, which has suffered the most significant job and sales losses since March 2020, and none more than local community-run restaurants.
Fortunately, none are more resourceful or determined than small business owners, and with quick shifts to online orders, contactless payments, and curbside pickup, local restaurants have pushed innovative boundaries to continue servicing their communities. Among the innovative, restaurant owners embraced new landscape designs creating beautiful, welcoming outdoor waiting and seating areas that have opened up how restaurants connect with their patrons.
Patio seating provides open spaces in an endless array of design possibilities – concrete pavers, bricks, and stones come in an array of colors and styles that can fit any motif. Shade sails, pergolas, and umbrellas all help stay out of the mid-day sun while enjoying a lunch special.
For lush greenery, potted plants create the feel of a garden in smaller spaces, and are great for growing fresh herbs such as basil or mint which can then be used in the kitchen, so win-win all around!
Landscape lighting even as simple as string lights creates a welcoming glow for guests while they dine, and invites passers-by to stop and sit and order some food!
